“Your life is your own unique spiritual path, and if you cultivate your inner light, it will always shine on the Great way or the Great Tao.”
Acupuncture is a non-invasive medical system that both encourages and allows for people to take their health into their own hands. All healing is self-healing. Traditional Chinese medicine sees all illness and symptoms as messages from your body indicating an imbalance that simply needs to be balanced. Traditional Chinese medicine recognizes the uniqueness of individuals, as well as the wholeness of our beings, this includes our thoughts, emotions and spirit, there is no seperation. This understanding guides the treatments or course of action needed to find balance and increase health and wellness.
Acupuncture employs mechanical means, such as needles, to manipulate the body’s lifeforce. The theory and practice of traditional Chinese medicine is based on restoring the normal physiological flow of qi in the body. This can be done with needles, herbs, moxibustion, massage, cupping, diet as well as physical exercise such as qi gong. Every treatment is as unique as every individual.
