What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a system of health care that originated in China & has been used for over 3000 years. This form of healing works with the vital energy that is inherent within all living things. This energy is referred to as Qi' (pronounced "chee").  It flows along specific pathways called meridians, each of which is linked to, and expressed by, a physical organ within the body.

Spiritual, mental, and physical health are influenced by the movement of Qi'.   Acupuncture assists in restoring the balance of Qi' as it moves along the meridians.  Health is achieved by maintaining the body in a "balanced state".

Those without symptoms also benefit from acupuncture.  One can prevent illness, experience a greater sense of well being & improve their current state of health through treatment.

Acupuncture has become widely accepted in the United States & has been endorsed by both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institute of Health (NIH).

The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture in the treatment of over 50 common diseases including ~ headaches, allergies, back pain, hypertension, digestive ailments, asthma & infertility ~ to name a few.  Many conditions may be alleviated very rapidly, while others may require slow, steady progress. Patients are encouraged to actively participate in their healing process.

Patients often report improvement or disappearance of their symptoms, along with increased vitality and stamina and an ability to take better care of themselves in their daily lives.
