An Ancient Healing Tradition
The state of health in the individual can be enhanced by acupuncture, a process of stimulating the vital energy by inserting, small, sterile needles just beneath the skin. This helps to direct the flow of energy in the body, much like a traffic light directs the flow of traffic. Needle insertion is usually painless and once the needles are inserted the individual usually experiences a deep state of relaxation while stimulation of the healing process occurs. Often the patient reports a sensation of warmth, tingling, or an energized sensation near the site of the needles. This is termed the “Qi sensation”.
