WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used systems of healing in the world. It is simple, safe, and sustainable. Traditional Chinese Medicine holds that there are as many as 2,000 acupuncture points on the human body, which are connected by pathways of energy called meridians or channels. These meridians conduct energy, or what we call qi (pronounced "chi"), between the surface of the body and its internal organs. Each acupuncture point has a different affect on the qi that passes through it. Qi is believed to help regulate the balance in the body, returning it to a state of homeostasis.
There are many, many health conditions that can be effectively treated by frequent, regular acupuncture sessions. Once a week is typically the very minimum required in making progress on any type of health issue.
