This 5,000-year-old tradition uses the insertion of micro-thin needles to rebalance the body's energy fields. It stimulates the "Chi" energy in the body. When the energy along the pathways, called meridians, is disrupted by physical, chemical, or emotional stress, disease follows.
Careful examination enables the acupuncturist to determine which meridians and organs require attention. Restoring the energy pathways allows the body to relearn its own shortcuts to self-healing, so that harmony and efficient functioning can return, bringing new energy and emotional balance.
