Acupuncture was developed in China almost 6,000 years ago and is based on the theory that the Qi or Chi (life-force) is channeled as a continuous flow of energy throughout the body by a network of meridian's. These meridians correlate with the body's electromagnetic system, formed by neurons. When the energy becomes stagnate in the body it can cause dis-ease and illness. Accupuncture utilizes the element of metal to restore the body by reconnecting the nervous system. The needles are metal and act as conductors jump starting neurons that are burnt out. Acupuncture helps damaged neurons restore their ability to fire generating chi and electricity. The hair-thin needles are inserted at specific meridian points to stimulate different systems; digestive, immunity and endocrine. This allows the body to correct the imbalances in these systems restoring health.
