Acupuncture is a component of the health care system of China that can be traced back at least 2,500 years. The general theory of acupuncture is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body that are essential for health. Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease. Acupuncture may, it has been theorized, correct imbalances of flow at identifiable points close to the skin.
Our bodies are made up of meridians that correlate to organ systems which can be affected by our lifestyles, become out of balanced and cause disease. By treating yourself to acupuncture, you are engaging in the act of true self care and upgrading your body, mind and spirit.
