Acupuncture is over 5000 years old and is a time tested healing modality originating from the far East. Each individual will experience acupuncture
on a personal level and what one feels depends on their own state of being and level of sensitivity.
It’s common to feel a sensation of warmth, tingling
or traveling Qi (energy) when the needles are inserted; and many experience a profound sense
of relaxation and well being or possibly increased energy. Acupuncture treats the whole being which includes body, mind, emotions and spirit.
Acupuncture points are located in the small depressions or hollows in the skin called gates. Thru these gates, one can access the internal streams and rivers of energy that transport Qi and blood. Qi and blood give sustenance to the interaction and cohesion of mind, body and spirit. Fundamentally, illness manifests when Qi, Blood and Fluids are either blocked, depleted or imbalanced, which diminishes its healthy coherence to the point of dysfunction or eventually illness. Acupuncture can reorganize this dynamic by opening, closing or harmonizing the flows within the rivers and streams (channels).
