Acupuncture is a 5,000 years old healing practice, and has helped million of millions people regain their health.

At the core of this ancient medicine is the philosophy that Qi or vital energy flows throughout the body. Qi helps to animate the body and protect it from illness, pain and diseases. A person’s health is influenced by the quality, quantity and balanced Qi.

Qi circulates through specific pathways called meridians. There are fourteen main meridian pathways throughout the body. Each one is connected to specific organs and glands. Meridians pathways are like rivers. Where a river flows, it transports life-giving water that nourishes the land, plants and people. In the same way, meridians pathways transport life-giving Qi to nourish and energize every cell, organ, gland, tissue and muscle.

Many things influence the quality and balance of Qi. Physical and emotional trauma, stress, lack of exercise, overexertion, seasonal changes, diet, accidents or excessive activity can lead to a blockage or imbalance of Qi. Normally, when this imbalance occurs, the body naturally compromises until the body can't balance Qi any more, then illness, pain or diseases can set in.

Acupuncture is to insert needles on acupoints on the body to activate the body’s Qi and promotes natural healing by cleaning up the blockages of meridians, and enhancing recuperative power, immunity and physical and emotional health.
