At Liberty Wellness & Chiro, our licensed acupuncturists work in collaboration with our team of chiropractors, physical therapists, pain management specialists, and massage therapists to promote better health through a blend of Eastern and Western medical techniques.
But How Does Acupuncture Work?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is based on the concept that pain and disease are caused by imbalances in the “chi,” which is a Chinese term for the metaphysical force of energy or breath (also spelled “qi”). When a person’s energy is flowing properly through the 200+ energy pathways in the body, the body is in balance and harmony.
However, when any one of these pathways becomes blocked, congested, or unbalanced, illness results. With acupuncture, a practitioner strategically inserts small needles in the body’s energy points, and thus the body can be returned to a balanced state.
Is Acupuncture Safe?
When provided by an experienced, licensed acupuncturist, acupuncture is quite safe and effective.
Whether you’re seeking treatment at Liberty Wellness & Chiro for mild, annoying headaches or debilitating conditions such as arthritis, our licensed acupuncturists may be able to help you through safe, relaxing acupuncture.
