Benefits of Acupuncture (continued):


People who receive acupuncture see their physicians less frequently and use fewer  medications, according to a survey conducted by Claire Cassidy, Ph.D. 
(Journal of Alternative & Complementary Medicine; Spring 98, Vol. 4).  In addition, over two thirds of those surveyed reported having avoided surgery.

Acupuncture is a healing art that originated in China over 3000 years ago. It is based on the theory that a universal life energy called qi (pronounced “chee”) permeates all living things and underlies all natural phenomena. Qi courses through our bodies in channels similar to flowing rivers. When the qi is full and flowing, we are strong and healthy. However, everyday stresses (poor diet, lack of exercise, emotional distress, injury or disease) can over time create blocks to energy – qi -- that lead to physical, mental or emotional problems. Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of qi within the body, mind and spirit, so that healing can begin. The benefits of acupuncture are now clearly recognized and well-documented in Western medical journals and in medical institutions across the United States.
