Traditional acupuncture started over 3000 years ago in China, and is the oldest continuously practiced medical system in the world. It is used by over one billion people as a primary health care system. Acupuncture is based on natural laws that describe the flow of vital energy in nature and the body.
This vital energy, called “qi” (pronounced “chee”) pulses through the body in channels, called meridians, similar to rivers, streams, and oceans. When the qi in the body is full and moving freely, good health is enjoyed. When the qi is not moving in harmony, dis-ease begins.
