Acupuncture stimulates the flow of Qi energy that in Traditional Chinese Medicine is considered essential to health and optimal wellbeing. When the body is in healthy vitality, Qi flows smoothly through the meridians that make up the conceptual network of pathways through the body. When Qi is obstructed or deficient or out of balance, the body cannot function best.
