How can acupuncture help me?

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a branch of Chinese medicine. Here are some of its practical principles and methods:


  • Fourteen major energy channels called meridians course through the human body including the head, arms, hands, legs, feet, torso, and internal organs.
  • A subtle energy called Qi (pronounced chee) circulates via the meridians to all parts of the body, even the most remote cells. Its balanced, unimpeded flow is critical to sound health.
  • Misdirection, blockage, build-up, or other imbalance of Qi may result in pain, dysfunction, and illness.
  • Acupuncture stimulates points along the meridians to restore and strengthen the body’s balance.
