ABOUT CHINESE MEDICINE

By settling your mind and body into a state of rest and relaxation, your own system has the space to heal itself.

Acupuncture is a treatment method used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a complete medical system aimed at treating the underlying root causes of disharmony in the body. As a holistic therapy, treatments are individualized to benefit the patient as a whole to restore balance for both physical and emotional well-being. 

Very thin, sterile, and single-use needles are gently inserted into specific points on the body along a series of channels (pathways) that interconnect all tissues and organs. Through these channels, Qi (energy) and blood flow to nourish the entire body.

From a TCM perspective, "when there is blockage, there is pain." Acupuncture initiates smooth Qi and blood flow through the meridian pathways to provide relief from physical and emotional symptoms. It restores homeostasis by promoting circulation, reducing inflammation, and stimulating the endorphins that alleviate pain. Acupuncture works on your parasympathetic nervous system - the "rest and digest" part of your nervous system and opposite of the "fight or flight" response - which is what makes it so relaxing.
