Acupuncture is the oldest, continuously practiced medical system in the world. This highly effective system of medical care is based on natural laws, which govern the movement of vital life giving energy, both in nature and in the body. Acupuncture is a healing modality that utilizes extremely fine, sterile, disposable needles to facilitate healing. This form of therapy originated thousands of years ago in China and is the most well tested and thoroughly documented system of medicine on earth.
Energy, also known as qi, moves through the body in precise channels supporting functions of the body, mind, and spirit. When the qi is not in harmony, imbalances begin to surface in the form of specific symptoms. To address the underlying causes of a condition, these symptoms are viewed in relationship to the totality of a person in order to explore the root cause. The gentle insertion of hair thick, filiform needles at specific points along the channels of qi energy helps to restore harmony at the deepest level of the body and spirit. In the presence of this subtle, yet, profound intervention, symptoms are often resolved quickly and patients frequently experience a deep personal transformation.
