Acupuncture is a healing art that has been used for centuries. It is based on the premise that Qi (pronounced che) is flowing through your body all the time though specific pathways called meridians and channels (similar to the blood flowing throughout the arteries and veins). This Qi provides energy and vitality to all the organs and systems of the body. If this Qi becomes blocked or impaired in any way it can manifest itself though specific symptoms in the body. Acupuncturists are trained in depth on how to recognize these symptoms and provide a systematic approach on how to restore the body to its natural balanced state.
