FREE Consultation

A 30-45 minute free consultation before your first acupuncture or massage treatment. It includes a general discussion of your overall health, habits, diet, and emotional state. A full evaluation of symptoms and signs, including checking the pulse and tongue, to see if you are in "half health state", and a Chinese Medicine diagnosis will be made. We will develop a treatment plan relating to your health concerns before your first acupuncture or massage treatment.

What is Qi and how does it move? PDF Print E-mail

At the core of this ancient medicine, is the philosophy that Qi, (pronounced “chee”) or Life Energy, flows throughout the body. Qi animates the body and protects it from illness, pain and disease. A person’s health is influenced by the quality, quantity and balance of Qi. Qi circulates through specific pathways called Meridians. There are 14 meridian pathways throughout the body. Each is connected to specific organs and glands.

Meridian pathways are like rivers. Where a river flows, it transports life-giving water that nourishes the land, plants and people. Like rivers, meridian pathways transport life-giving Qi to nourish & energize every cell, organ, gland, tissue and muscle. When Qi flows freely throughout the body, one enjoys good physical, mental & emotional Well-being. An obstruction of Qi anywhere in the body is like a dam, backing up in one area, and restricting it in others. Restricting the flow affects the nourishment required by the body in order to function optimally.
