What does an acupuncturist do?

During your initial exam, questions are asked regarding your health, symptoms, and lifestyle. An appropriate physical exam is conducted, including pulse, tongue, and/or AcuGraph scanning.

Gathering this information enables us to effectively diagnose and detect any specific imbalances of Qi that may have contributed to your health problems. Your acupuncturist can then create a well-structured and specialized treatment plan.

Once the imbalances of Qi are detected, your acupuncturist will place fine, sterile needles at specific points along your meridian pathways. This safe and painless insertion of needles can unblock the obstruction, and balance Qi where it has become unbalanced. Once done, Qi can freely circulate throughout the body, providing adequate nourishment to cells, organs, glands, tissues and muscles. This can eliminate pain and restore balance and harmony, as well as the body’s ability to heal itself—ultimately leading to optimal health and well-being.

At the core of this ancient medicine is the philosophy that Qi (vital 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.

How does Qi move?

Qi flows through specific pathways called meridians. There are 14 main meridians inside the body.

The diagram below shows the meridian pathways in the body. Each of these is connected to specific organs and glands.

Meridian pathways are like rivers flowing inside the body. Where a river flows, it transports life-giving water that provides nourishment to the land, plants and people.

Similarly, where meridian pathways flow, they bring life-giving Qi that provides nourishment to every cell, organ, gland, tissue & muscle.

How is Qi disrupted?

An obstruction to the flow of Qi is like a dam. When Qi is backed up in one part of the body, the flow becomes restricted in other parts. This blockage can be detrimental to your health, cutting off vital nourishment to the body, organs and glands.

Physical and emotional trauma, stress, lack of exercise, overexertion, seasonal changes, poor diet, accidents, or excessive activity are among the many things that can influence the quality, quantity and balance of Qi.

Normally, when a blockage occurs, the body easily bounces back, returning to a state of health and well being. If a disruption is prolonged or excessive, or if the body is in a weakened state, illness, pain, or disease can set in. Blockage of Qi can be detrimental to a person’s health and leads to various signs and symptoms or health concerns.
