According to Oriental medicine philosophy, the health of our body, mind, and spirit are inseparable.  However, the body contains two opposing forces: Yin and Yang. When these forces are in balance, the body is healthy. Energy (Qi) flows like rivers along pathways or meridians throughout the body. This constant flow of energy keeps the Yin and Yan balanced. However, the flow of energy can sometimes be blocked, like water getting stuck behind a dam. A disruption in the flow of energy can lead to illness. From a western perspective, acupuncture likely works by stimulating the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) to release chemicals called neurotransmitters and hormones.

Eastern view of health is a manifestation of harmony that flows between body, mind, spirit. When the body is internally balanced and in harmony with the external environment, energy flows smoothly throughout to nourish all organs and strength inner body. Acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing ability to maintain health and prevention and optimize your health, well-being and anti-aging.
