What is Acupuncture?
· Chinese medicine teaches us that our bodies contain a network of pathways where vital energy flows. Those pathways are called meridians and energy is called Qi (or Chi). When meridians get obstructed, energy flow is disrupted, and ailments occur.
· Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles at specific body points along meridians. The therapeutic effects of those points reestablish energy flow and bring your body back into balance.
· No remedy on this planet is as ancient as herbs. Several thousands of years of collected knowledge regarding the qualities of medicinal herbs are used by holistic practitioners today. Various herbs are mixed into formulas based on certain fundamental principles. These formulas influence your body's physiology and pathology by addressing specific conditions.
Why would we combine Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine?
· Acupuncture and medicinal herbs are holistic therapies. Acupuncture acts on the meridian network throughout the body. Medicinal herbs act on internal organs and penetrate problem areas/sites deeper than acupuncture points. The dual impact of herbs and acupuncture will cover all levels of the body and will maximize the therapeutic effect.
