acupuncture
The Chinese have been using acupuncture for over 2000 years. Through all this time they have put together a complete system for understanding the working of the body and mind. They see the vital energy (Qi—pronounced chee) of the body running mainly in channels called meridians. They found that they could manipulate that energy (Qi) at certain points along those meridians using various tools, including needles and the heat from burning herbs such as moxibustion (mugwort). They found they could strengthen weak Qi and expel any excess Qi or toxins that have accumulated in the meridians. Acupuncture can also clear blockages of Qi or other vital substances in the body, as well as regulate the function of the internal organs by stimulating the points on the channels connected to them. In this way acupuncture can stimulate the body’s natural healing responses, increase resistance to disease, and restore the vitality of the body and mind.

Traditional Chinese acupuncture recognizes that many times aches, pains, and other discomforts are only symptoms of a deeper, underlying health problem. Therefore, a comprehensive diagnosis is compiled which takes into account the individual’s body, mind, and spirit, rather than simply categorizing them into a disease. The basis of acupuncture is to build the body’s own immune system so that disease will not penetrate the body. Prevention is the best medicine.
