If you have any health concern that you wish to get rid of, acupuncture and oriental medicine is most often the best means of achieving your health and wellness goals. Acupuncture allows you to heal with out putting drugs into your body, and without taking organs out. It is a safe and natural means that will allow your body to heal on its’ own.
Acupuncture and Oriental medicine identify the root-cause of the problem, and facilitates your body to self-heal, or make the necessary adjustments on its own, without the use of drugs or surgery. If the engine light turned red in your car, would you ignore it, or put a piece of tape over it? You would most likely take your car in to see why the engine light came on. It most likely came on as an indicator because there was a malfunction somewhere. Just like your car, your body sends you “red light” signals in the form of symptoms. Symptoms are just indicators that a condition has reached a state where it needs your immediate attention. Many people take drugs and medication, which simply “put tape over the light,” and mask symptoms. We all want to get out of pain and discomfort; however, we must look into why your body is alarming you? We will find the origin of the problem and correct the root cause, so that not only do the symptoms resolve, the underlying imbalance is resolved as well.
Qi (chee) translates to mean energy, and though Qi is invisible, its presence becomes especially apparent in the workings of the bodily organs and systems, which require this energy to heal and regenerate. The Chinese view Qi not only as a powering function, they see it as inseparable from function as there is no Qi without function, and no function without Qi.
Qi is also known as “life force,” that which animates all living things. Since the total absence of Qi is death, good health depends on a balanced distribution of Qi throughout the meridian network. The meridian network influences the organs and all bodily systems: skeletal, muscular, endocrine (hormones), circulatory, digestive, respiratory, urinary, reproductive, and nervous. When Qi flows smoothly throughout the meridians, each bodily system are united and interconnected. It is the Qi that connect and unites all systems of the body, making us feel healthy and whole.
