Acupuncture, has been used in China as an essential component of their healthcare system for at least 2500 years. This ancient technique is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi or Chi) throughout the body that are essential for health. When the flow of Chi, the life force energy, is disrupted, it creates imbalance in the body, making it more receptive to disease and disharmony. Acupuncture corrects the imbalances of flow at identifiable points (acupuncture points) close to the skin by stimulating or sedating the point to balance the flow of Chi in energy pathways called meridians. Acupuncture is very safe and highly effective. It has been used by millions of American patients and performed by many physicians, dentists, acupuncturists and other practitioners for the relief and prevention of pain and a variety of health conditions. Such applications include treatment of back pain, muscle cramping, digestive problems, headaches, addictions, tinnitus, allergies, asthma, gynecological disorders, hypertension, depression and stress reduction.
