Acupuncture is one of the eight branches of Oriental Medicine that govern mind, body and spirit. They are as follows: 1. Meditation/Self Cultivation 2. Qi Gong (pronounced Chee Gung) 3. Phase Nutrition 4. Tui Na (bodywork or massage) 5. Taoist Philosophy 6. Feng Shui (pronounced Fung Schway) 7. Herbology and 8. Acupuncture. Oriental Medicine is based on the fact that all things including the world around us have an energy flow. In the body, this energy flows through channels called meridians.


In Oriental Medicine, as stated above, all things have a living energy flow. This energy is called Qi (pronounced "Chee"). It is believed, and has been proven, that dis-ease is a result of an inbalance in the flow of energy. The body (both animal and human) contains channels called meridians through which the Qi flows. In Oriental Medicine, there are points located all along these meridians. These meridians are connected to organs in the body. There are 12 major meridians used in Acupuncture. They are: Lung, Large Intestine, Stomach, Spleen, Heart, Small Intestine, Bladder, Kidney, Pericardium, Sanjao, Gallbladder and Liver. Acupuncture uses very thin needles (thinner than a human hair) which are inserted at a superficial level in specific points along the meridians to manipulate the energy flow (either increasing it or decreasing it) to bring it into balance. When the energy is in balance the body maintains optimum health and well-being. Acupuncture is both a very sophisticated and simple medicine. While it takes a great amount of study as there are thousands of points on the body, it is very simplistic in its nature. Science has proven that our bodies are just large energy fields; when those fields are out of balance so is our health and wellness. WHAT IS IT USED FOR?

Acupuncture is used for many chronic conditions such as pain, fatigue, skin problems and digestive disorders. It is excellent for use in infertility, stress relief and as a beauty treatment (Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture). Energy medicine like Acupuncture and Qi Gong, is also used for spiritual purposes. It assists in raising the vibration of the body, mind and spirit. In China, Oriental Medicine was used for all types of healing including, and especially for, spiritual and psychological purposes. When the meridian flow is balanced, illness cannot take hold of the body. The Chinese were well aware of this and so used the medicine primarily to align spirit. The other branches of Oriental Medicine speak to this as well.
