Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture
The Focus of Chinese Medicine is to Achieve Balance in the Body thereby Creating Optimal Health

There are four major body systems that need to function well for optimal health:
• oxygen flow (referred to as Qi in Chinese)
• blood flow
• organs
• nervous system

Blood and Qi (oxygen) are circulated through a complex invisible network of channels called Meridians. If there is an obstruction or diminished flow of Qi (oxygen) and/or blood, disease begins and symptoms develop. Acupuncture uses thin, painless needles to balance the flow of Qi and blood stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal and regenerate. Acupuncture can relieve pain, relieve the symptoms of allergies or insomnia, treat digestive, respiratory or circulatory disorders, muscular or skeletal injuries, depression or anxiety. Acupuncture can also be used to boost your immune system which will help prevent illness.

Over time, acupuncture treatments and herbal medicine restore the amount, quality, balance and flow of Qi (oxygen) and blood in the body providing an opportunity for the body to heal itself from disease and helps to maintain overall health and well being.

When performed by a competently trained, licensed professional, acupuncture is safe, effective and has no side effects. All licensed acupuncturists use individually packaged, sterile, disposable needles eliminating the possibility of infection or contagion between patients or practitioner. Acupuncture needles are very small, in fact, 18 acupuncture needles could fit in a single hypodermic needle.

Acupuncture has a 5,000-year history, is practiced around the world, and has been endorsed as a health care system by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
