is based on a holistic (body, mind, and biochemical) philosophy towards
healing and health. It recognizes that the physical, emotional and biochemical
reactions in the body are all interrelated. In other words, Acupuncture
treats not only the symptoms, but balances the body as a whole. This means
that the individual complaint is treated and one's overall health is strengthened.
One of the major principles on which Acupuncture is based is on the concept
of Chi. According to traditional Chinese medical theories, Chi is the
life force of the body and flows throughout the body through a series
of meridians which are interconnected. Various electromagnetic instruments
have measured Chi and its existence is well documented by the scientific
community. This Chi, in essence, "nourishes" the living organs
and it's proper flow is vitally important if good health is to be maintained.
Normally, the body is self regulating, but disease, stress, and injury
can upset the normal flow of Chi and thereby impair the health of the
body. Acupuncture treatments seek to remedy this imbalance.
By using traditional and modern methods of examination, we are able to
accurately measure the flow of Chi in your meridians. This information
gives us a great accuracy of how to regulate the flow of Chi so the body's
own system can heal itself.
