Channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body. These energy channels (called Meridians) are like rivers flowing through the body. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up the flow in one part of the body and restricts it in others.
The acupuncture needles unblock the obstruction at the dams, and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Treatments can help the body’s internal organs to correct imbalances in the digestion, absorption, and energy production as well as the circulation of energy through the meridians.
When the body is in balance, our body is open and absorbs more of the elements from the nutrients and supplements, as well as the essence (positive energy) from the environment. Thus, allowing the person to maintain homeostasis, normal biorhythm and true mental well being.
