Acupuncture involves balancing the body’s qi. The term “qi” is most closely translated as the word “energy” in English. The body and spirit have many kinds of qi and when they are out of balance the individual can develop health problems or become more susceptible to injury.
Stress, injury, overwork, and lifestyle choices involving diet and exercise are just a few of the factors that can contribute to a qi imbalance.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine can help to restore these imbalances in order to heal the individual and prevent further problems.
