Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice that creates balance in the body’s natural energy channels. According to Traditional Chinese medicine, the flow of energy throughout the body, known as Qi, runs regular patterns through the body. Qi must flow freely in order for the body to function optimally. When there is a disruption in the flow of Qi, the body often responds in pain or dysregulation.
With the insertion of thin needles into the body, acupuncture works to restore and maintain a healthy flow of energy. The procedure is comfortable and painless for most people, often leaving patients relaxed and/or rejuvenated after their session.
