What is Qi?

Qi is energy within the body. As all energy flows, Qi flows throughout the body along meridians. This flow can be interrupted, causing disruptions of energy that is vital to every cell, organ, and muscle in the human body. At the core of this ancient medicine is the philosophy that Qi (pronounced “chee”), or vital energy, flows throughout the body. Qi animates the body and protects it from illness, pain and disease. A person’s health is influenced by the quality, quantity and balance of Qi.
How is Qi Disrupted?

Qi disruptions can be compared to a dam which blocks a stream. Just as the water of the stream is backed up, Qi backs up in the body restricting the flow throughout. This disruption is damaging to a person’s organs as it stops an important exchange of information between the tissues and cells.

There are other things that can disrupt Qi, such as; trauma, lack of physical activity, improper diet, stress, Physical and emotional trauma, stress, lack of exercise, and seasonal changes.If this disruption of Qi remains for an extended period of time it can cause illness, pains, and fatigue, but through acupuncture, the body is able to restore itself back to a healthy state.

What Does an Acupuncturist Do?

Our practitioner will conduct a comprehensive health history to see if you would benefit from our care. This information will allow the practitioner to construct a treatment plan that will benefit each individual patient and help them on the pathway to a healthy life and overall well-being.

When our practitioner locates the disruptions of Qi, he places sterile acupuncture needles under the skin in the corresponding areas. Again, this is painless and completely safe. The needles stimulate areas of Qi disruption allowing flow to be restored. When the flow is restored, the body will be more able to heal itself.

Please feel free to call us with any questions that you have.
