Acupuncture is part of a system of medicine that has been practiced in Asia for over 3000 years. Traditional Chinese Acupuncture is based on the balanced function of the body’s motivating energy or Qi. Qi flows throughout the body in channels called meridians.
If the flow of Qi is insufficient or interrupted, then the body’s energy becomes unbalanced, and illness may result.
Acupuncture treatment stimulates these specific points on the body and the body’s Qi. This in turn brings about a movement in the energy, harmonizing the balance and restoring health. Traditional acupuncture treats illnesses as an imbalance of the body’s energy or Qi. It therefore can help treat many different problems or be used as preventative care.
Commonly treated conditions:
