What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine, TCM, and has been practiced for over 4,000 years.  The theory of acupuncture is based on qi, which is the vital energy in the human body.  Qi circulates through all parts of the body through pathways or channels called meridians.  According to the TMC, if the flow of qi is blocked and unable to flow properly through the meridians it will cause imbalance in the body which can manifest in various ways such as pain or illness.  Acupuncture restores balance to the body by removing any blockages that prevent the normal flow of qi, thus restoring optimal health and well- being.  Acupuncture improves circulation, relieves pain, and reduces inflammation. It is used to treat various conditions of the mind and body including: 

  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Sciatica
  • TMJ
  • Musculoskeletal Problems
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
