Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing that works with a person’s life force energy called qi (pronounced chee.) When Qi gets out of balance, becoming stagnant or deficient, it can lead to pain, disorder and disease of the physical body, the mind and the spirit.
Acupuncture seeks to resolve Qi imbalances by inserting hair-thin, presterilized and disposable needles into various points of the body identified as acupuncture points. These points are like gates where the Qi can be accessed in order to resolve the imbalances and restore the flow and harmony of the Qi. Once the Qi is back in harmony the body can heal itself naturally.
In the Western view, acupuncture stimulates the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) to release chemicals called neurotransmitters and hormones. These chemicals alleviate pain, boost the immune system and regulate various body functions.
