How does it work?

The goal of acupuncture is to establish a healthier state by correcting imbalances in the body’s natural energy channels. The energy that flows through the body is called Qi (Chi). By stimulting blocked or stuck Qi, Acupuncture and Chinese medicine aims to assist the body to move energy and correct the imbalances, returning to a naturally healthy state.
