Oriental Medical experts say that pain and disease are caused by either an imbalance or a blockage of the energy (“Qi”) circulating in the body. Acupuncture restores the proper flow of energy, returning the body to good health.

The combination of acupuncture points chosen work together to heal the body by re-establishing the proper functioning of Qi in all systems. The point prescriptions are not generic for the disease, but rather are unique to the underlying cause of the symptoms found in each patient.
