What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of ancient medicine used to balance the body’s inner vital energy Qi (氣, pronounced: Chi or Kee). The human body lives in an extremely complex environment nowadays. Work, school, family, living environment, friends, money; all these things affect our bodies day in and day out. Our vital energy (Qi) is being disturbed by many different factors. Once the Qi is obstructed, our bodies start to compensate over time and, if we keep ignoring them, their function will be impaired.
Acupuncture is a potent way of regulating the Qi and unblocking the energy channels (meridians). Meridians are the channel connections between inner organs and the surface of the skin. By applying acupuncture needles on certain points on the surface of the skin (known as acu-points), we can regulate the Qi flow in the body to achieve optimal health levels. This approach has been used for over 3000 years and, today, acupuncture is still one of the most used natural treatments in the world. By focusing on changing the flow of energy through our meridians, we can alter the flow of energy in the body to help relieve problems that run deeper than what can be seen on the surface.
Effective for individuals of any age, the process of acupuncture can help release, regulate, and correct the functions of the body through the energy that gives it life.
