Acupuncture philosophy

Inside of you is an intelligent energetic system that maintains balance. Einstein showed us that everything is made of, and radiates energy. This subtle form of energy supports, shapes and enlivens our physical body and activates our lives.

For the past 5000 years, practitioners of acupuncture have called this intelligent energy Qi (pronounced "chee"). Acupuncturist can access this Qi through various entry/exit points (359 basic points) that are grouped into the 12 regular meridians.

An acupuncturist views each individual as a dynamic, integrated whole, observing how signs and symptoms weave together in order to understand the underlying, energetic profile of a person's health.
