Acupuncture is an external therapy. By means of needling, it can stimulate the body and activate the regulating functions of the body to improve and rectify the disturbance and dysfunction of certain organs in the body. Such a therapy not only can treat disease, but also can prevent disease. It is noted for extensive application, significant curative effects and no side effects.
A healthy body has an abundant supply of Qi (pronounced chee and called Life energy) – that flows through channels (Meridians) to all parts of the body to support physiological functions.
An imbalance between any of these forces can cause a blockage in the flow of your Qi (chee) or vital energy traveling through your body along invisible meridians. Poor nutrition, stress, infection, exposure to cigarette smoke and other external factor can reduce levels of Qi or block its flow, and then the body quickly becomes imbalanced and more susceptible to disease or illness.
A TCM practitioner will use acupuncture to stimulate certain points along your meridians and clean Qi blockages and promote an increased supply of Qi in order to bring your Qi back into balance.
In our clinic, an acupuncture therapy involves the painless insertion of fine, sterile needles or the application of gentle electrical stimulus directed onto the acu-points.
