Acupuncture is a 2000-year-old Chinese healing art which impacts the energy flow (or “Chi”) in body through needling.
From traditional Eastern perspective, when energy flow is blocked, deficient, or abnormal the person will get ill and symptoms starts to manifest. Acupuncture is stimulating the body to balance itself through guiding the Chi. By needling specific points that have specific functions, the practitioner is able to heal and direct the body back to the healthy state.
From a biological perspective, acupuncture is stimulating complex neuro-chemical pathways. Every time we put an acupuncture needle in someone’s skin, we’re providing them with enough stimulus to signal the body to activate itself for healing.
