Balancing your Body with Acupuncture
Have you ever felt “stuck,” or that something in your body just seems out of balance? Our bodies are indeed a dynamic, constantly shifting landscape of energy. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, good health is dependent on the free flow of this vital energy we refer to as Qi. A blockage or stagnation in the proper flow of Qi may lead to pain, dysfunction, or disease. In fact, illness is seen as simply an imbalance in the body’s energy. Acupuncture needles are used to unblock any obstructions along the meridians through which this energy flows, restore the regular flow of Qi, and renew health.
What can Acupuncture treat?
In the last few years, acupuncture has been in the news with promising studies regarding the treatment of such conditions as chronic pain, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, migraines, back and neck pain, anxiety, insomnia, and infertility. Other conditions ranging from digestive to musculoskeletal to nervous and circulatory issues are commonly treated with acupuncture. Acupuncture is also a wonderful therapy for the prevention of disease. Each treatment is determined by the patient’s unique makeup and history.
