The practice of acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points on the body. It’s effect is to remove blockages that prevent blood and “qi”(pronounced chee)-the body’s energy- from reaching vital tissues and organs. Qi is the energy that keeps our life systems functioning, our hearts pumping blood, and our bodies moving. Qi can become blocked or insufficient due to stress, injury, poor nutrition, or life changes. These blockages can lead to illness, reduced energy, or diminished life quality. Acupuncture moves blocked qi and strengthens weak qi to promote balance and wellness in the body.
