Qi (pronounced “chee”) is the key to life in Oriental medicine, the vital force that allows you to move, think, feel, and work. Qi is constantly in motion, flowing along meridians or pathways throughout your body, sending renewed life force to every cell.

Any disruption of this flow may result in pain, dysfunction, or ill health. Acupuncturists restore and balance this essential flow of Qi by using very fine needles to stimulate the meridians at precise points.
