Qi is a key component to Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is the harmonious balance of yin and yang. For some, whose energy flow is interrupted, illnesses may arise and cause pain or discomfort. Qi flows throughout your body, across hundreds of acupuncture points, and can be brought back to its proper balance by inserting sterile needles into these specific points.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
