- Acupuncture is under the guidance of the theory of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). This treatment is based on a theory of invisible pathways called channels that span over the entire body. When these channels become deficient or blocked, the organs are starved of vital Qi and if this continues over a long period of time it can result in a whole range of acute and chronic problems. To encourage the body back to health, the acupuncturist stimulates these points with painless disposable needles. This will free the energy blockage and restore a natural flow of Qi to the organs. Because acupuncture is holistic, it treats the whole person body, mind and spirit not just the symptoms of disease. Scientific studies with acupuncture have shown patients reporting greater well-being, increased vitality, relief from illness and substantial decreases in pain without having to suffer the usual side effects. through these channels is Qi life energy and underlies everything in the universe. Everything that lives and moves and breathes, is believed to do so, because Qi flows through it.
