“Your body knows how to heal, the needles just help it remember”
The theory and practice of acupuncture originated in China. The tradition of acupuncture theory believes that energy flows within the human body and this energy can be channelized to create balance and health. This energy flow is called QI. This QI moves throughout the body, along 12 main channels known as meridians. These meridians represent the major organs and functions of the body. In the healthy state the vital energy flows normally, Interruption in the flow of this vital energy causes disease.
These meridians and energy flow are accessible through acupuncture points in the body. Acupuncture points are seen as places where nerves, muscles, and connective tissue can be stimulated. The stimulation increases blood flow, while at the same time triggering the activity of the body’s natural painkillers. it is the safest, effective and a gentle way of treating various ailments. Although it is associated with pain control, it has a much broader application.
