How can Acupuncture Help You?
Health is the result of balance and harmony in the body. When the body is unbalanced, disease and pain occur. Acupuncture is used to restore the body's natural balance.
How Acupuncture Works
Acupuncture works with the energy, or Qi (pronounced Chee), that flows through the body's skin, muscles, and organs along pathways called meridians. By stimulating specific points on the meridians, acupuncture directs energy throughout the body's networks and unblocks the obstructions that cause pain and disharmony. Acupuncture therapies help the body to re-establish its natural balance and harmony.
Healing the Whole You
Acupuncture has a different approach to health than other forms of medicine. Rather than treating individual symptoms, acupuncture balances the vital qi, treating the whole person.
For example, consider treatment for a headache. Instead of just relieving the pain, acupuncture treats the root cause of the headache. When the root cause is eliminated, the headache is relieved.
