What is Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a safe, natural, effective therapy where thin sterilized needles are inserted into the skin.

Acupuncture has been used for many illnesses both chronic and acute as well as for illnesses that are a

result of a weakened immune system or an overstrained nervous system. 


Acupuncture is rooted in ancient Chinese traditions and the theory is based on energetic pathways in the

body called channels or meridians where qi and blood flow. When qi flows freely we are well. The qi and

blood are carried through the channels to protect, prevent, heal, and

nourish the body, mind, spirit, and emotions. 


Just as you cannot see electricity run in wires you cannot see the qi (energy) running in the channels.

Acupuncture is based upon 5000 years of clinical study and observation. We know electricity exists and

science shows the validity of acupuncture’s electric “energetic” properties.


Qi (vital energy, life force) and blood work together to keep the body healthy. When qi or blood become

blocked or weakened due to injury, trauma, diet, medications, overwork, stress to name a few causes,

the qi and blood cannot perform their functions properly causing symptoms or imbalance. Acupuncture

works to restore the flow of qi and blood by removing the stagnation and by strengthening them to

provide energy and nourishment to the tissues and organs restoring balance known as homeostasis.
