How does it work? Fine, flexible needles are inserted just below the surface of the skin along a pathway of energy called meridians. These pathways run throughout the body and into the organs. By inserting a needle, we can adjust the flow of energy through the channels, stimulating and balancing the person’s own unique energetics to restore health.  Why does the energy in the channels decrease or become blocked in the first place? Stress, sudden emotional shock, fear, sadness, worry, grief, anxiety, poor diet, lack of exercise, environmental influences and hazardous chemicals may all contribute over time to blocking energy [...]
