Acupuncture

Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been practiced for many centuries – in fact, it one of the oldest continuous systems of medicine in history – the earliest recorded history dates as far back as 2000 years B.C.

Qi (pronounced chee) is thought to be an endless flow of vital life energy throughout the body. Qi originates from major organs and flows along 12 regular and 2 extra continuous circulatory channels called meridians. There are points on the skin (called acu points) that are on the meridians, and are energetically connected to specific organs, body structures and systems. When the qi is moving smoothly throughout the meridians, a person is healthy; but if the qi in the meridians are blocked it will cause pain or sickness because of the imbalance.

Acupuncture is the technique of using fine, sterile and disposable needles and inserting them through the skin at specific points to be able to control pain and other symptoms. This encourages the body to release hormones and chemicals that are able to reduce pain, regulate the endocrine system and calm the nervous system. Most people find acupuncture to be very relaxing.
