FAQ

WHAT ARE THE MAIN OBJECTIVES OF ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT ?

Relieve pain and other symptoms Strengthen the immune system Balance, harmonize, and integrate functions of the organs with each other 

HOW DOES THE FLOW OF CHI BECOME BLOCKED OR UNBALANCED ?

The desired balance in the flow of Chi can be affected by any noxious substance, both external and internal, including poor nutri-tion, adulterated food, toxic air or water, infectious or contagious diseases, malfunction of an organ, ergonomic or overuse injuries, as well as home, work, sports, and auto injuries. Excessive damp-ness, wind, cold, heat, even emotional responses to life such as worry, anxiety, stress may affect Chi’s flow through the meridians.

ARE NEEDLE TREATMENTS PAINFUL ?

Typically, acupuncture needles are fine and flexible, no bigger around than a human hair or piece of thread. The slender needle produces Little or no pain. Most patients experience a slight tingling sensation. First -time patients are usually amazed at how comfortable they are during treatment. 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE FLOW OF CHI (ENERGY, VITAL FORCE) BECOMES BLOCKED ?

Any sustained blockage or other disruption of a balanced flow or distribution of Chi may bring on pain, a weakened immune system, and ill health. A blockage may cause a deficiency of Chi beyond the blockage and a buildup of Chi behind the blockage, which may mean diminished activity of some organs and accelerated activity of others. On a freeway we know what happens when one or more lanes become blocked. It’s a similar idea on a meridian. 

WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT BLOCKED, UNBALANCED CHI ?

The objective of acupuncture treatment is to normalize the flow and distribution of Chi and balance its circulation by stimulating the selected acupoints via needles or other means. At the practitioner’s discretion, herbal therapies may be prescribed.
