As medical science advances, we are learning more about how the mind, the body and the essential energy that runs through each and every one of our bodies, an energy that some might call the spirit, are connected. And while not everyone may agree on what the “spirit” is or where the “spirit” even comes from, there are a growing number of healthcare practitioners and patients alike who believe that it is through effectively treating the mind, the body and the spirit together as a unit that health can most effectively be promoted and disease treated.
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting very fine needles into influential points called acupuncture points that are located along energy pathways called ‘meridians’. Meridians run throughout the body and when acupuncture needles are inserted into acupuncture points, a patient’s “Qi”. or their “vital energy” can be brought back into balance, helping to promote or restore good health.
