Traditional Chinese Medicine has been around for thousands of years and is proven to help with many ailments such as chronic and acute pain, fatigue, low energy, headaches, migraines, sleeping problems, low immunity that may manifest as frequent colds and flu’s.
These are just to name a few and by using Chinese Medicine as a preventive medicine, this will enhance your overall well-being.
One way of looking at this, think of yourself as a garden hose that has a kink in it; the plants will not receive adequate water with which to thrive.
What will happen to the plants? They will wither and die – signs and symptoms that you never had before start manifesting in your body.
What happens if they receive adequate water flow? They will thrive, grow and flower.
Acupuncturists detect and correct where the kinks, or blockages in the flow of Qi (pronounced “chee”, is the energy that flows along the ‘garden hose’ within your body).
Once located, we use specific points to un-kink and restore the proper flow of Qi, so that your cells, muscles, tissues and organs can receive the vital energy with which to function properly.
