Acupuncture is based on the concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is one of the oldest healing arts practiced in the world.
The concepts of TCM are very nature based. As in nature, a delicate balance in all its elements must be maintained. This is also true of the human form.
Balance in Chinese medicine is attained when Qi (energy or life force) flows freely through the system.
In the human body Qi and blood flow continuously through channels (rivers), moving energy to and from the internal sources (organs) to external sites (muscles, tendons, bones and skin).
Disharmony occurs when the system is thrown out of balance by blockage in the movement of Qi.
Acupuncture needles are applied at key points along the channels of energy to encourage the movement of blocked Qi.
TCM acupuncture can truly assist the body, mind and soul to regain and maintain balance.
