Inserting very fine needles at specific points on the body restores balance by influencing proper physiological functioning. Acupuncture is based on the principles of Qi.
Qi is the energy force that runs throughout the body in channels called meridians. In much the same way that a garden hose carries water to the garden, if the flow of Qi becomes blocked or stagnant, imbalance and disease can occur. Identifying and opening any malfunctioning channels with precise placement of needles is the aim of Acupuncture.
Balance is restored with the proper flow of Qi, which in turn, supports the body’s entire healing systems. Acupuncture actually supports the body in healing itself.
