For any therapy to be effective there must be a union with all levels of healing; physical, mental/emotional and spiritual. Acupuncture is an incredible tool for re-balancing the disrupted meridian systems which if left untreated can manifest as disease on the physical level. Acupuncture follows a similar philosophy to Chiropractic care in that if you have a subluxed vertebrae you can impinge a nerve leading to pain as a potential symptom. This is likened to the analogy of a water hose; when the water is on but there is a kink in the hose the water is unable to flow. In Acupuncture, the meridian system operates in much the same way. These meridians are connected to particular organs in the body. When an organ is stressed, the acupuncture needle serves as a way to “un-kink the hose” and allow for proper flow through that particular organ and body as a whole.
