Acupuncture treatment is based on the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  In Chinese Medicine each person has a network of energy channels or "meridians" that run through their body.  One's health is dependent on the constant flow and circulation of energy or "Qi" ( pronounced 'chee') and nutrients through these meridians.  Pain and illness are the result of blockages or disruptions in the flow of Qi in the body.  Many things can cause blockages or disruptions: pathogens, stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, trauma, medications and their side effects.  Acupuncture works by inserting needles into specific points on the body which stimulate blocked meridians and help to return the flow of energy to its normal state.
