What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the application of a thin stainless steel needle inserted into various points on the surface of the body. Acupuncture points lay on meridian lines of our body which are unseen energy channels. Meridians are similar to the pathways of the circulatory or nervous systems. There are 14 meridians in our body they are conduits responsible for the transit of life energy called “CHI.”
This life force energy runs through various channels from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet. When our bodies get out of balance the energy is sluggish, just like being stuck in a traffic jam. Acupuncture points are placed on the body to get the vehicle moving so that the body can heal.
