The art of Acupuncture is a holistic form of traditional Chinese medicine that has been practiced for more than 2,500 years. It’s based on the belief that your body’s energy, or qi, flows through and around your body in pathways called meridians. When an energy pathway is blocked or imbalanced, you may feel stress, depression, pain, or the symptoms of a disease. It’s through this practice that many tiny needles are placed in certain points on the body to stimulate a healing response, calm the mind, and alleviate pain. Ultimately the acupuncturists goal is to improve and balance energy flow through this calming and non-invasive procedure.
