As humans, we flow from energy that Oriental Medicine calls chi. When a persons energy is in flow, there is harmony, joy, and inner peace. When the flow is impeded, an imbalance occurs, causing disharmony and dis-ease. Symptoms begin to appear. Acupuncture creates balance in the energy channels, restoring flow and easing symptoms.In acupuncture, we look at the core or root of dis-ease. When we address the core, healing begins.
