The principle of acupuncture is based upon a balance of the energy in the person’s body.  The flow of the energy known as Qi or Chi should travel uninterrupted along channels called meridians.  When treating a patient the TCM practitioner focuses on the acu points along these meridians.  The practitioner is able to activate or stimulate these points and clear energy blockages to re-establish the flow of Qi (life energy) and blood back through the body.

Acupuncture is the treatment method by which fine sterile acupuncture needles are inserted into specific acu-points.  The insertion of these needles is usually painless and relaxing.  When there is a blockage or disruption to the healthy flow of a persons’ health this causes an imbalance and can negatively impact your health, causing pain, and organs not working to their optimum ability.
