What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture stimulates healing by manipulating the natural, bio-electric field of the body.
Currents of energy—known as Qi—flow in pathways called meridians. Acupuncture points dot these pathways, conducting this bio-electric flow through and between internal organ systems. Extremely fine metal filaments (needles) or silver & gold implements are used to focus and direct this energy in therapeutic ways. Patients often remark how relaxed yet energized they feel following a treatment.
Strengthening one’s Qi helps to regulate heart rhythm and blood pressure, balance brain/body chemistry, balance hormone levels, and harmonize the function of vital organs.
