About Vitality Acupuncture, LLC
Gentle, Safe & Effective Treatments
From the 3000 year old Chinese medicine perspective, acupuncture works by facilitating the movement of Qi throughout the body, which directly impacts the body’s ability to function properly and nourishes our cells, tissues, organs. The concept of ‘qi’ originates from what the Chinese call ” life force” or animating energy”, and is found in nature and all living beings and is responsible for creating harmony and balance in health. If qi is blocked an does not flow freely, pain and illness will result; similar to a dam in a river. Acupuncture stimulates the smooth flow of qi, which influences everything from facial beauty with younger-looking skin, to stronger, healthier immune systems, to properly functioning digestion. Factors that influence qi are nutrition, sleep, exercise, trauma (physical and emotional), environment, lifestyle choices, stress, and genetics.
