Acupuncture is an ancient healing art that uses points on the body to access the qi. Qi is the same as energy or life force, it is the power that keeps our bodies moving, our hearts pumping and our minds thinking. Sometimes qi can become stuck or insufficient and then illness pursues. Acupuncture reaches in to move or strengthen a person's qi providing balance in the body. When there is balance, symptoms tend to disappear, leaving you feeling more alive, refreshed and in harmony.
Herbs are often used to help aid and facilitate the healing process. Herbs are carefully selected depending on each individuals needs. The herbs are given either as a tea, pills or powders.
Nutrition is also an integral part of healing. Our food sources are depleted of nutrients and often our food choices can make this even worse. Chinese medicine also looks at the temperatures and characteristics of certain foods which may or may not be beneficial for you or your health conditions.
All of the above methods work together to help bring the body back to homeostasis.
