Acupuncture is one of the oldest and commonly used, systems of healing in the world. Originating in China over 3000 years ago, only in the last 30 years has it become popular in North America.
The Ancient Chinese believed there is a universal life energy called QI (pronounced Chee) present in every living creature. This energy is said to circulate throughout the body along specific pathways called meridians. As long as this energy flows freely throughout the meridians, health is maintained.
Pain or disease (physical/emotional) occurs in the body when there is a deficiency, excess or blockage of the energy in the pathways. With over 365 acupuncture points located along 14 meridians, acupuncture works to re-program and restore normal function by inserting fine needles to stimulate certain points on the meridian to free up the Qi energy.
The acupuncture needles used are high quality, sterile and disposables. There is absolutely no risk of contamination between patients. You should always tell your acupuncturist about any medication you are taking as this may affect your response to the acupuncture treatment.
