How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture works with the twelve meridians in your body. It works with the energy that is in your body. Qi (pronounced chee) is the intangible force at the very heart of Chinese medicine. According to the Chinese philosophy, qi animates life; without qi, there is no life. In your body right now, qi is flowing in a specific pattern. When its flow is disturbed, your health can suffer.
The ancient Chinese arrived at the concept of qi by observing nature. They say the way water and wind affected the earth, they concluded that the same invisible forces that power wind and water must also be at work within our bodies.
Chinese tradition holds that qi is expressed as two different energies: Yin is the cool, moistening aspect of our bodies and Yang is the life force associated with heat and dryness.
Acupuncture is designed to remove "blockages" of qi that may occur anywhere in the body. These blockages are said to cause inbalances that allow diseases to take hold. Let us balance your Chi.
