ACUPUNCTURE IN WEST ORANGE, NJ
WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Acupuncture is based on the concept that the physical, spiritual and emotional bodies are connected in function. It also deals with Qi energy. Qi (pronounced “chee”) is a network of energy called that flows thru all aspects of the body. The goal of the treatment is to regulate and balance your life force, the body energy or ‘Qi’.
Qi flows through your body in channels called “meridians”. Acupuncture uses very thin stainless steel needles to stimulate specific points along those meridians. This stimulation can unblock energy that is “stuck” or to bring energy into areas that are lacking energy, allowing the body to move back into balance.
