Acupuncture began in China over 10,000 years ago. It is a technique of inserting extremely fine sterile needles very superficially at specific sites on the body called Acupuncture points. These points are located along energetic pathways called Meridians. The body’s “Vital Energy” or Qi Chi) flows throughout the body in these invisible vessels like electricity. To maintain good health, there must be a balance of Qi in every part of the body. If the flow of Qi becomes blocked or out of balance, illness will result. Acupuncture needles are like “keys” that have the ability to open the doors, windows and gates of the body which may be blocked or closed by internal stagnations and thus influence the flow of blood and Qi throughout the entire body. Healing results when the flow of blood and Qi are re-established. Acupuncture is used to treat many common conditions including: headaches, back pain, sciatica, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, tennis elbow, arthritis, infertility, menstrual disorders, digestive disorders, anxiety, depression, insomnia, allergies, sinusitis, asthma, and nausea. It is also used as an adjunctive treatment following chemotherapy, to improve circulation, to assist with smoking, weight loss, and addictions and to promote a general feeling of well-being and deep relaxation.
Qigong(Chi Gong), similar to Reiki, is also a form of energetic healing. Qigong literally means to cultivate the vital energy. Therapeutic Qigong is the application of cultivated Qi, with or without touch, to heal the body, mind and spirit. It was developed in China thousands of years ago and has been used to reduce pain, alleviate stress, release constrained emotions, quiet the heart, normalize the blood pressure, enhance mental focus, calm the mind, elevate the mood, improve circulation, move energy blockages, promote deep relaxation and elicit a profound sense of well-being.
