Qi is a Universal Energy which flows through all living things.
Qi is the body’s own energy. It is the body’s vital life force, and is always in a state of constant change.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, meridians are a non-physical network that are mapped out throughout the entire body in which Qi flows.When the body’s Qi flow is interrupted or out of balance, ailments, whether physical, mental, or emotional become evident.
Once the patient’s health is reviewed, hair thin needles are inserted along meridians at specific acupuncture points to balance the Qi of the body. No doubt, you will feel more relaxed and rejuvenated.
