Acupuncture is a means of encouraging the body to activate its own healing abilities to restore normal function to problem areas. This is done in modern times by inserting very fine needles to specific points on the body called acupuncture points.

The oldest known acupuncture texts are from China and date from 3,000 years ago. However, acupuncture has expanded into other regions and many different approaches exist today, including Korean, Japanese, and Vietnamese styles.

In recent years, Western medicine has become interested in acupuncture. Acupuncture used alongside orthodox western medicine is sometimes called Medical Acupuncture. Western acupuncturists may use traditional Chinese acupuncture points, trigger points or a combination of points.

Qi Gong (energy work) embodies self-care techniques developed in China thousands of years ago. In the old days, these arts were handed down from master to disciple and methods were closely-held family secrets. Today, Qi Gong exercises are very popular in China. Large groups practice in the early morning in public parks. In the West, qi gong and taiji classes are frequently recommended to assist in regaining and maintaining health: jing-qi-shen, the three treasures of essence-energy-spirit. Qi Gong strengthens the body, moves the energy (qi, chi, ki) and calms the mind. Enjoy!
