In hopes that you stay in good health after the acupuncture visits, you will be educated on the causes of your symptoms and any possible lifestyle changes that you can make.
Acupuncture originated in China over 2500 years ago and
is part of the Chinese Medical System, which views health as a constantly changing flow of energy, or qi (pronounced chee). Chinese Medicine bases its theories on the natural law of the universe to describe the flow of life energy in the human body.
Life energy flows through the body in meridian channels similar to rivers that run through the earth. Any discrepancies in the flow of qi or blood may cause signs and symptoms of discomfort. Pain or discomfort are signs of imbalance within the body, and if ignored, could lead to more serious problems later on. Acupuncture is the use of needles on certain points of the body to regulate and balance the body into harmony for prevention or treatment of illness.
