Acupuncture stimulates the balance and flow of energy (Qi, pronounced chee). When the body is healthy, Qi flows smoothly through the meridians that make up a network of pathways throughout the entire body. When the balance or flow of Qi is deficient or obstructed it may be diseased or susceptible to illness. Acupuncture treats both the symptoms and the root causes of the patient’s illness.
Acupuncture is helpful in reducing pain, increasing energy, improving mood and body function. It can be supportive for a wide range of conditions including hot flashes, nausea, infertility, stress, and digestive disorders. All of our naturopathic doctors at Valero Wellness are fully trained and licensed to perform acupuncture.
