WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture is the practice of piercing the body with thin, sterile needles at specific acupuncture sites throughout the body. According to the Chinese, energy channels (or meridians) run in regular patterns throughout the body, and our overall well-being is dependent by a balanced and smooth flow of energy through these meridians. Deficiencies, blockages or imbalances in energy, blood or nervous impulses may eventually lead to a decline in well-being or an assortment of illnesses, and a variety of factors can disturb the flow of energy, such as disease, stress, anxiety, fear, poor nutrition, infections or injury. Inserting acupuncture needles in sites along these meridians can stimulate the nervous system and circulation, and re-establish a smooth and balanced flow through the meridians. The goal of Acupuncture is to treat the whole person, restoring balance in the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the individual.
