Find the silence

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a safe and effective form of medical treatment. Through the insertion of sterile, single-use, disposable, fine, hair-thin needles into points along energetic pathways, called channels or meridians, the subtle energies of the body can be rebalanced.

The goal of acupuncture is to identify areas of excess stagnation and areas of weakness and redistribute the Qi, or vital energy. Choosing which points to needle involves understanding the functions of each individual point, the pattern of the disharmony, and the best way of addressing that pattern on that given day.

Disharmony and imbalances can occur at the physical level, the mental-emotional level, and the spiritual level. Acupuncture can address all three.

What causes such imbalances?

  stress
  lack of exercise
  overexertion
  seasonal changes
  poor diet
  accidents
  congenital conditions
  or simply living the lifestyle of excess that is common in our modern day culture.

We go, go, go, and seldom take time to rest and restore. Receiving an acupuncture session is often a prime opportunity to go somewhere quiet and restful, shut off your cell phone, be listened to and supported, and simply lay still. Never underestimate the very real healthful benefit of simply tuning into your body and creating greater stillness.
