According to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, our vital energy or Qi (pronounced chi) flows throughout our bodies along energetic pathways called meridians. When blockages or imbalances occur within these meridians, symptoms of illness or disease develop. To free the blockages and reestablish balance, a select group of acupuncture points are chosen based on each individual’s personalized diagnosis. Micro-thin disposable needles are then painlessly inserted into these points, allowing the blockages to clear and harmony and balance to return. Treatments may also include cupping, gua sha, massage or moxibustion, depending on the patient’s needs or requests.
