Originating in China more than 5,000 years ago, acupuncture is a healing method to treat disease. It is so effective that it has been benefiting Chinese people for thousands of years. Now, acupuncture is the fastest growing health care treatment in America.

The acupuncture theory is based on Meridians. The word “Meridian” as used in Chinese medicine came from the translation of the Chinese term “JingLuo”, which are the channels that carry “Chi.” The meridians connect the internal organs of the body with the exterior points on the skin along these meridians. These 14 major energy channels traverse throughout the human body including the head, arms, hands, legs, feet, torso and internal organs. Energy called Chi circulates via the meridians to all parts of the body. Any misdirection, blockage, derangement of the flow of the chi may result in pain, dysfunction and/or illness.

Working on the acupoints on the surface of the body will affect the chi that exists inside the body. Acupuncture needles can stimulate these acupoints. Such stimulation helps restore the normal balance and flow of chi, so organs and bodily systems can work together in harmony.

Acupuncture treatments’ main objectives are to relieve pain and other symptoms, strengthen the immune system, and balance functions of the organs with each other, making for a unified healthy person.
