What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a medical science used by early physicians in East Asia for more than 5000 years to treat pains and dysfunctions in the body. There are over 500 acupuncture points on the body that directly affects the body’s energy network, called Qi. Qi has no direct English translation, but can be translated as ‘vital energy’ or ‘life force’. Qi is the force that gives things life, animation and movement.
Chinese Medicine works to balance a person’s internal environment. Physical, emotional and environmental stressors that each affect the body differently. The use of hair-thin needles at particular acupuncture points, creates an endorphin response that releases energy triggering the body’s natural instinct to heal itself.
