Acupuncture involves sterilized disposable needles used in specific acupuncture points located on meridians. Each acupuncture meridian is associated with a particular physiological organ system. Like streams flowing along the body, the meridians traverse from the surface of the skin and connect to the depths of an organ system.

The Chinese have an ancient maxim: "when there is pain, there is no free flow... when there is free flow, there is no pain".

Like non-flowing water in a stream, Qi stagnation can lead to pain or organ dysfunction. An acupuncture treatment can free the Qi that has become stuck. Likewise, where Qi is deficient, acupuncture can increase the flow of Qi.

Acupuncture promotes relaxation, balance and health.  Acupuncture promotes blood circulation.   Acupuncture treatments give patients a radiant healthy glow.  Acupuncture benefits professionals who have stressful careers.  Acupuncture reduces pain.  Acupuncture restores feeling grounded.  Acupuncture boosts the immune system.  Acupuncture is also used as preventative medicine for defense against long term stress and the flu season. 

Actual acupuncture sessions may vary from 20 to 60 minutes, depending on the nature of the individual and treatment protocol. Clients are encouraged to wear loose clothing. During an acupuncture session, a client may feel some tingling, like an electrical current moving along the meridians. Generally, acupuncture does not cause bleeding, although on occasion, it may occur. Most people gain tranquility through acupuncture while some fall asleep during their treatment.
