The use of acupuncture dates back more than 2,000 years. This is a traditional medicine of Japan, China, and other Eastern countries.

The use of acupuncture is beneficial in that it stimulates areas of the body that have a direct correlation to internal organs. By placing fine needles into specific points, the body is encouraged to promote natural healing, improve function, and provide an overall boost to your system. When these needles are inserted, they go into Meridians, which are channels somewhat like streams within the body.

Meridians are the energy network of the body

They are energy channels ‘transporting’ life energy (Chi/Qi) throughout the body. If there are blockages, leading to lack of energy supply to certain areas of the body, or a surplus of energy in other areas…

The Body Meridians can be used for Treatment of a condition or/and Diagnosis.

Energy blockages can be the result of stress, an injury or trauma, or bad living habits (diet,habits/addictions, lack of exercise) and can be traced to the root of all health (physical/mental/spiritual) problems.

Just as there might be a boulder sitting in a stream blocking the flow of water, it can be the same for the channels of blood in your system. Acupuncture helps to remove these obstacles by providing stimulation, thus improving health.
