for balanced healing
Unlike many drugs, acupuncture has no side effects or toxicity. Acupuncture uses your own energy to correct your problem. So it works from the inside rather than adding something from outside.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the human body is seen as a whole organism. There is a system of 12 energy pathways, or meridians, through which vital energy, called “Qi”, travels. The pathways just underneath the skin connect the surface of the body with the internal organs. We can affect the flow of energy in these pathways by putting needles in the skin. This stimulates Qi, opens the meridian, creates a free flow and removes any accumulated pathogens in the body. It also balances the function of the organs, whether their functioning is too high (excitement) or too low (weakness). When this balance is normal, most illness will be cured.
