Acupuncture addresses imbalances by promoting the flow of energy or QI through your meridians, which are channels of energy that connect to your organs and travel throughout your body.

Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), an approach to medicine that is thousands of years old. The basic principle is that symptoms and diseases are a reflection of physical, mental, emotional, or energetic imbalances and that the body will return to its natural state of health once balance is achieved. Acupuncture works by promoting the flow of energy, or Qi, through meridians, which are channels of energy that connect your organs and travel through your body.

Acupuncture is available at the SCNM Medical Center and the Neil Riordan Center.
