The practice of acupuncture and moxibustion is based on the theory of meridians. According to this theory, chi (vital energy) and blood circulate in the body through a system of channels called meridians, connecting internal organs with external organs or tissues. By stimulating certain points of the body surface reached by meridians through needling or moxibustion, the flow of chi and blood can be regulated and diseases are thus treated. These stimulation points are called acupuncture points, or acupoints.

Acupuncture is an integral part of the rapid growth of complementary medicine in the United States. It has had at least 2,000 years of documented use and continual development in the Far East. Although often described as a means of pain relief, it in fact can treat people with a wide range of illnesses. Its focus is on supporting the natural processes of the body mind in its movement towards greater health, and the treatment of specific symptomatic disease. The health of the body is dependent on the life force energy –known as Chi or Prana- moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of energetic channels (meridians). These energy channels are treated with very fine needles to unblock and stimulate the flow of energy. This activation enhances the function of the organs, vitalizing our muscular, immune, digestive, metabolic and hormonal systems.

Acupuncture is truly a holistic approach to developing and maintaining life long quality of health.
