The ancient Chinese believed that there is a universal life energy called Chi or Qi present in every living creature. This energy is said to circulate throughout the body along specific pathways that are called meridians. As long as this energy flows freely throughout the meridians, health is maintained, but once the flow of energy is blocked, the system is disrupted and pain and illness occur.
Imagine rivers that flood and cause disasters or an electrical grid short-circuiting that causes blackouts. Acupuncture works to “re-program” and restore normal functions by stimulating certain points on the meridians in order to free up the Qi energy.
Traditional Chinese medicine takes into account the “whole person” and understands that stress and excessive emotions all contribute to health issues. Through thorough questioning, examining the tongue and pulse qualities a prescription of treatment is given to suit your needs.
