Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine and works with the flow of energy in the body, referred to as “qi” (pronounced “chee”). When qi is allowed to flow freely through the meridians in the body, they body is in balance and stays healthy. However, if this flow is blocked, this disruption can lead to pain and illness. Acupuncture works to free blocked qi in the body by stimulating points with tiny needles, allowing the body to heal and regulate itself.
Chiropractic acupuncture is often used to aid in the healing of musuloskeletal pain, but can also be used for a variety of issues ranging from migraines to depression and anxiety.
