What is Stagnant Qi?
Proper blood and Qi (energy) circulation is vital to good health and Chinese Medicine sees poor circulation as the main culprit to almost all ailments.
When vital energy or blood is not circulating it forms pools of stagnation with cells not doing their job of feeding and cleansing the body.
Just like our cars can not run without gasoline, our bodies can not run without energy.
The circulatory system transports oxygen and nutrients to our organs and tissues and carries away toxins and waste products.
It also transports the disease-fighting cells of the immune system that we need when we are sick or injured.
Plain and simple, poor circulation means poor health. In fact, if circulation is poor our organs are actually malnourished.
Stagnant or blocked Qi is caused whenever there is a constriction or blocked accumulation.
An injury, illness, poor diet, unhealthy thoughts and lack of exercise all play major roles in creating stagnant Qi, but the biggest culprit is STRESS!

What does Acupuncture treat?
Acupuncture has been practiced in China for over 3,000 years. Acupuncture is actually one branch of a system of medicine known as Chinese Medicine.
Treatment methods include acupuncture, Chinese herbs, nutrition and Tuina massage. Western medicine has looked at acupuncture only.
-Common cold-Car accident injury
-PTSD : post-traumatic stress disorder
-Neck, Shoulder pain & Back pain
-Hip, Knee, Foot & Sciatic pain
-Hot flash / Night sweat
-Headache / Migraine
-Sinus / Allergies
-Diarrhea / Constipation
-Irritable bowel syndrome
-Low energy / Fatigue
-Induction of labor
-Adverse reactions to radiation/chemotherapy
The reason acupuncture works for all of these conditions is that just like Western medicine, Chinese medicine is a system, based on a complete theory of how the body, mind and spirit work.
Chinese Medicine had an integrated theory of disease that included both external pathogens and internal imbalances 3,000 years before the West did.
It recognized, as Western medicine is just beginning to discover, that our emotions and lifestyle can profoundly influence our health and well-being. Physical symptoms are often intimately related to how you are dealing with life emotionally.
