For millennia, Traditional Acupuncture has been used to alleviate pain, discomfort, mental stress and other symptoms and disorders by restoring balance to the body's flow of subtle energy called Qi (pronounced "chee" as in "cheese"). Qi activates the body's basic vital substances and internal processes that regulate and maintain overall functional health and vitality.
When the flow of Qi is interupted or disturbed it causes an imbalance in the total quality and quantity of Qi in the body. This imbalance of Qi is experienced as a wide variety of common symptoms such as pain (headaches, lower back pain, neck pain, arthritis, etc), emotional and behavioral problems (depression, anxiety, worry, stress, addictions, etc), problems with sleep, poor digestion, recurrent infections, constipation, etc.
Traditional Acupuncture works by unblocking, rebalancing, and maintaining the flow of Qi in your body to not only alleviate a wide variety of poor health conditions and symptoms, but also to support overall wellness by preventing future imbalances from occurring. In some cases, unblocking the flow of Qi with Traditional Acupuncture can also help treat more complex symptoms and medically defined poor health conditions that often do not respond to drugs or surgery alone.
