Empowering healing with Eastern medicine
A key component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture uses ultra-fine needles inserted at specific points on the body to correct imbalances in the flow of qi (“chi”).
The origins of disease
Qi is translated as “the life force,” which flows through meridians (energy channels) throughout the body. Dis-ease occurs when blocks occur in this flow of qi.
Conditions commonly treated using acupuncture
- Hormone imbalances
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Respiratory conditions
- Circulatory disorders
- Musculoskeletal problems
TCM dates back more than 5,000 years, with the earliest written record of acupuncture being in the second century BCE. Western medicine continues to study acupuncture and recognizes it to be very effective for a variety of medical conditions.
