Acupuncture

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The ancient Chinese believed that there is a universal life energy called Chi or Qi present in every living creature. This energy is said to circulate throughout the body along specific pathways that are called meridians. When this energy flows freely throughout the meridians, health is maintained, but if the flow of energy is blocked, the system is disrupted and pain and illness occur. Acupuncture works to restore normal functions by stimulating certain points on the meridians in order to free up the Chi energy.
