Oriental medicine, and by extension acupuncture, is all about balance; the circulation of blood, oxygen, and natural energy through the body. When a person's Qi, or "vital air," becomes blocked, acupuncturists insert very thin, sterile, stainless steel needles into activating points, which balances the body's natural circulation and mobilizes the body's natural immune response. This is safe, effective, and drug-free therapy that can address a wide variety of common aliments and problems.
