"Just as the water reflects the stars and the moon, the body reflects the mind and soul."
Monica’s introduction to acupuncture came in 1999 as she had been experiencing chronic pain for a few years. After seeking years of various medical interventions, she eventually found acupuncture and that is when she began her healing journey. Through her experience as both a patient and practitioner, Monica has experienced the transformational results of acupuncture and is passionate about sharing the amazing benefits of this medicine with others. Here is her story…
Acupuncture is a wonderful system of medicine that comes from China and is over three thousand years old. Our body is made of Qi (or energy/life force) and the Qi flows through specific pathways or meridians in the body. There are acupuncture points along the pathways that if stimulated may promote better flow of Qi. When our Qi is flowing smoothly, we tend to be healthy and when our Qi is blocked, certain symptoms manifest from that. To restore harmony, acupuncture needles are inserted at specific points along the pathways to rebalance the Qi. The person’s general wellness is improved by strengthening the body’s ability to remain in harmony and withstand disease/hardship.
