Several thousand years ago, East Asian practitioners discovered that the body forms disharmonies as a result of the various physical and mental stresses of life. Oriental medical theory explains these disharmonies as an imbalance of opposing forces called yin and yang. This imbalance disrupts the movement of the body’s vital energy (qi) along the meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body’s energy is thought to flow. Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of qi. By inserting and manipulating hair-thin needles at specific points, the body returns to its natural balance and promote the body’s ability to heal itself. Modern research has shown that acupuncture is a safe, effective, chemical-free way to promote the body’s remarkable self-healing abilities. Most people find the sensations produced by acupuncture treatments to be deeply relaxing both mentally and physically.
