Acupuncture

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine and based on the idea that Qi (energy) flows through distinct pathways in your body (also known as “meridians”), which keep you healthy and balanced. You experience illness when your Qi is disrupted.

How does acupuncture work?

To restore the flow of Qi, hair-thin needles are inserted in the skin at various acupuncture points (we have over 500!) along your meridians to activate your body’s capacity to heal. The needles trigger your central nervous system to reduce pain and inflammation. The outcome is the creation of harmony and balance in your body, once again.

Five Element Theory

At Wind Gate Wellness, we use the Five Element theory in addition to other aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It’s based on the idea that the world and body are made up of just that: five main elements—wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. These elements correspond to specific organs in the body and are all interconnected. It works holistically with the mind, body and spirit, rather than the symptoms alone.

What to expect

We will create a custom acupuncture plan based on an assessment of your general well-being, health, lifestyle, diet and medical history. During your treatment, hair-thin needles will be inserted into the body at very specific points. You may feel some tingling, or an electrical sensation either around the needle or traveling up or down the affected meridian. After the treatment, any discomfort you experience is mild and short term. There are no long-term negative side effects.

Happy Clients

Bobby is a fantastic human being and practitioner. He is gentle, asks the right questions, and is calming to be around. I am positive the acupuncture he did for my migraines is the reason I haven’t had one in months.
