Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Acupuncture is based on the traditional Chinese concept of Qi or Chi energy. Qi encompasses all vital activities (spiritual, emotional, mental and physical), and it is the "life force" within all living organisms.

A person's health is influenced by the flow of Qi in the body. If the flow of energy along certain pathways throughout the body is blocked or insufficient for some reason, illness or pain may result. Possible reasons cited for obstructing the flow of Qi include internal or emotional disturbances, external factors, imbalances in diet, and stress. Stimulation by acupuncture is said to remove these blockages   by diffusing lactic acid and carbon monoxide that accumulates in muscle tissue. These accumulations are believed to cause stagnation of blood and stiffness throughout the body.

When the pathways are cleared, energy flows freely and the body's life force is considered balanced, producing an optimal state of health and well-being.
