About Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine?

Traditional Oriental Medicine is a comprehensive health care system with a clinical history of effectiveness of over 4000 years. It includes acupuncture, herbal treatments, massage, nutrition, meditation and exercise. These therapies work with the body's natural energy to promote healing. This natural energy, Qi (pronounced chee), flows throughout the body along specific pathways called meridians or channels. Each meridian is associated with a particular physiological system and internal organ which communicates with the surface of the body at specific acupuncture points. These points are stimulated to balance the circulations of energy.
