Most people find acupuncture extremely relaxing and many fall asleep during treatment. Acupuncture works with the natural vital energy inherent within all living things to promote the body’s ability to heal on its own.
This form of healing is based on energy flow while western medicine focuses on a biochemical model. The ancient Chinese recognized a vital energy in all life forms and all life processes.
This vital energy is known as Qi and is the energy that flows through the body in channels known as meridians. This is what nourishes as connects our major organs. According to this theory, acupuncture adjusts the flow of qi in the body, draining it from areas of excess and leading it to an area where it is insufficient. In this way, acupuncture restores the harmonious balance of the body and its parts.

According to the Chinese medical theory, illness arises when the cyclical flow of Qi in a meridian becomes unbalanced or is blocked. This is much like a dam blocking a river, creating imbalance and pain.
Stimulating acupuncture points influences the meridians, unblocks obstructions, and helps re-establish the regular flow of Qi through the meridians.
