Chinese Medicine Clinic Wickow
Acupuncture is based on a theory of invisible pathways called channels, which span the whole body. Flowing through these channels is Qi , the life force energy that underlies everything in the universe.
Many of the body's acupuncture points are lying like small whirlpools along these channels. When these channels become deficient or blocked, the organs are starved of vital Qi and if this continues for a long time, illness can result in the organs of the body.
By stimulating these points with painless disposable needles, an acupuncturist aims to free the blockage and restore flow of Qi to the organs allowing their function to improve. Because acupuncture is holistic, it treats a patient's body, mind and emotions and recent studies have shown the immediate effects to be an increased sense of energy, greater balance and decrease in pain.
