Acupuncture is about guiding the body through a state of balance, letting it make the right decision so that the body naturally corrects itself and therefore functions properly and heals.
The beauty of Acupuncture is that it treats the individual’s overall health and well-being, not just the symptoms. The theory on which acupuncture is based is called meridian (or channel) theory.
Meridian theory describes the flow of qi (life energy) through the body. Qi connects all the tissues and organs of the body, circulating from one area of the body to another along certain pathways. For the body to function properly, qi must flow freely and in the correct strength and quality through each of the meridians.
When the flow of qi is interrupted or unbalanced, illness of the body, mind and/or spirit will occur. This ancient Chinese form of healing art originated more than 4000 years ago and its healing abilities are well respected in the world today. The fact that Acupuncture continues to be practiced in this day and age is strong proof of the true power of this medicine.

What to expect from your first acupuncture visit
Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles ( sterile one time use ) into specific points on the body to influence the flow of qi throughout the body. The selected points chosen are best suited to address the concerns and symptoms you are experiencing and your individual qi imbalances (identified based on your medical history and examination).
The goal of acupuncture treatment is to restore the balance of the qi and blood of a person’s body. Restoring balance to the body’s qi/blood allows the person’s body, mind, and spirit to heal and can resolve the symptoms and concerns for which the person has sought treatment.
