What Is Acupuncture?

What is acupuncture?


Acupuncture stimulates healing by manipulating the natural, bio-electric field of the body.


Currents of energy—known as Qi—flow in pathways called meridians. Acupuncture points dot these pathways, conducting this bio-electric flow through and between internal organ systems. Extremely fine metal filaments (needles) or silver & gold implements are used to focus and direct this energy in therapeutic ways. Patients often remark how relaxed yet energized they feel following a treatment.

The practitioner may use additional therapies such as Cupping, Bodywork, and Moxibustion to move, strengthen, and balance the Qi of the patient.

Strengthening one’s Qi helps to regulate heart rhythm and blood pressure, balance brain/body chemistry, balance hormone levels, and harmonize the function of vital organs.
