Meridians are energy channels which course throughout the body. Chi circulates via the meridians to all parts of the body.

The unimpeded flow of chi is imperative for good health, and any misdirection, blockage or other interruption of the flow of chi may result in pain, dysfunction and poor health.

Using fine needles, an acupuncturist stimulates certain points along the course of the 14 meridians. This act restore the balance and flow of chi so that the body and its systems can function normally.

Acupuncture sets the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own health.

Acupuncture and Cupping for Pain Relief

The placement of acupuncture needles at specific pain points releases endorphins and opioids, the body’s natural painkillers, as well as neurotransmitters to the brain. There is also evidence that stimulating acupuncture points may increase the rate of healing to injured areas. When pain is relieved, patients feel a greater overall sense of well-being, both physically and emotionally. As a result, they may heal faster.

A common practice among olympic athletes and celebrities alike, cupping draws out inflammation, detoxifies the body and improves circulation. It’s this improved circulation that helps speed up recovery and promotes healthy skin and boosts the complexion.
