In Traditional Chinese Medicine certain energy patterns were noticed that run throughout the human body, this energy is termed Chi or “Qi” and it flows through channels known as meridians. These meridians flow through the body like a river nourishing organs and tissues. When the river becomes blocked due to stress on the system, improper diet and/or lifestyle, it acts as a dam and doesn’t allow the Chi/“Qi” to flow. This stagnation can result in pain, edema, constipation and a host of other ailments caused by an unbalanced system. Acupuncture can be utilized to re-balance the system and restore health.
Acupuncture alone, or in combination with other naturopathic modalities, is a phenomenal way to help encourage the innate healing process of the body. It stimulates healing on many levels for a multiplicity of ailments that patients encounter.
Acupuncture is a fairly painless procedure and treatment time is approximately 30 minutes. Depending on the ailment, treatments may vary from one session to several and span over a six-week period in order to witness optimal results.
