Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing modality that involves the insertion of very fine needles into the skin at specific acupuncture points. Acupuncture points are thought to lie on pathways, or meridians, throughout the entire body.
Meridians closely follow the paths of the nervous system but are slightly different in function. Contained in the meridians is ‘qi’, which is similar to energy. In a healthy system, ‘qi’ flows smoothly throughout the body, assisting in different physiological and energetic functions.
In Chinese medicine, pain and disease are considered to be a result of blockages in these meridians. Using acupuncture, and often herbal medicine, I seek to regulate these pathways so qi can circulate freely through the body.
While acupuncture is a very effective therapy for many conditions, it is not a cure in itself. I strongly believe in integrative medicine and encourage you to see your primary care physician on a regular basis.
