Acupuncture is a 3,000 year old Chinese system of whole-body approach to health care. It is the goal of the acupuncturist to look at the entire person, not just symptoms as is done in Western medicine. Acupuncture practitioners recognize that there is vital energy, called Qi (pronounced chee), circulating within the body. It flows through a series of pathways called meridians that are like rivers, providing nourishment and Qi to every cell. A proper balance of energy in the meridians promotes and helps to maintain good health. The acupuncturist’s goal is to rebalance the body and alleviate those conditions without the use of drugs or surgery. Research shows that acupuncture is a safe and painless way to effectively treat a variety of medical conditions.Learn More
Nutrition is the process of obtaining and consuming food and breaking it down to use for energy by the body. Why is it important to have good nutrition using diet and nutritional supplements? By practicing a healthy diet, many health issues can be avoided. A poor diet may have an injurious impact on the body, causing health-threatening conditions like obesity, metabolic syndrome, hormone imbalances and common chronic systemic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis.
