After discussing your medical history, feeling your pulse and looking at your tongue, an Acupuncturist inserts extremely fine, stainless steel, sterile needles into specific points along the meridians (energetic pathways) of your body. The insertion of needles signals the body to correct imbalances in the flow of Qi (pronounced “chee”), or Life Energy. Once this is done, Qi is free to circulate throughout the body, providing adequate nourishment where necessary. This eliminates pain, restores balance and harmony, and ultimately leads to optimal health.
