What is Acupuncture and How Does it Work?
The ancient Chinese believed that energy, called Qi (pronounced Chee), flows to each cell of the body. According the classical doctrines of Chinese Medicine, there is an unceasing flow of “life energy” through the body. This vital energy called Qi (prounounced Chee) originates from the major organs, flows along continuous circulatory channels called meridians and passes through other organs to end or begin on the extremeties. If the energy gets stuck at a certain spot, it creates an imbalance that can lead to a variety of health problems.
Acupuncture focuses on points where Qi tends to get stuck. Stimulating these points with needles restores normal qi circulation, allowing the cells to return to their healthy state. When the energy flow is smooth and balanced you are healthy!
