What is Qi?
At the core of this ancient medicine is the philosophy that Qi (pronounced “chee”), or vital energy, flows throughout the body. Qi animates the body and protects it from illness, pain and disease. A person’s health is influenced by the quality, quantity and balance of Qi.
Qi can be disrupted by a variety of things, such as emotional or physical trauma, stress, lack of exercise, overexertion, seasonal changes, poor diet, accidents, or excessive activity. When imbalance occurs, the body normally rebounds to a healthy state, but when the disruption is prolonged or excessive, illness, pain, or disease can set in.
Once the imbalances of Qi are detected, an acupuncturist will place fine, sterile needles at specific acupoints along meridian pathways. This safe and painless insertion of the needles can unblock the obstruction and balance Qi where it has become unbalanced. Once this is done, Qi can freely circulate throughout the body, providing adequate nourishment to cells, organs, glands, tissues and muscles. This can eliminate pain and restore balance and harmony, as well as the body’s ability to heal itself – ultimately leading to optimal health and well-being.
We also practice in Traditional Chinese Medicine which also includes traditional herbs for treating different ailments. We take steps using Chinese medicine and Evergreen herbs to treat different conditions. Our steps include:
1. Symptomatic care
2. Corrective care
3. Prophylactic care
Acupuncturist: What We Do
During the initial exam, a full health history is taken. Questions are asked regarding health, symptoms and lifestyle. An appropriate physical exam is conducted, including pulse and tongue diagnosis. Gathering this information enables us to effectively assess and detect any specific imbalances of Qi that may have contributed to a person’s health problems. We can then create a well-structured treatment plan. For the best treatment results, keep a few things in mind:
Please show up on time to your appointment
Wear loose, comfortable clothes
Don’t eat a large meal before your visit
Be sure to discuss any questions or concerns
Refrain from overexertion, drugs or alcohol for at least six hours after treatment
Keep all of your appointments, as each visit builds upon the previous ones
Follow your treatment plan between visits
Acupuncture is an alternative medicine in which thin needles are inserted into the body. It is a key component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM theory and practice are not based upon scientific knowledge, and acupuncture is a pseudoscience. There is a diverse range of acupuncture theories based on different philosophies, and techniques vary depending on the country.
