What is Acupuncture
Acupuncture is all about assisting the body to naturally heal itself and function better. This is done by gently inserting needles into specific points the body.
How Acupuncture Works
TCM comes from a philosophical model that involves the flow of cyclic energy within the body. This energy flows through pathways known as meridians, which are connected to physiological systems and bodily organs. The energy inside the organ is “Qi.” This energy can become yin, yang, obstructed, excessive, or deficient. To balance the level of Qi in the body, acupuncture treatment is used.
