Champion Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), one of the oldest systems of medicine dating back 4,000 years. It is the most commonly used system of healing in the world.  The theory of acupuncture is based on Qi (pronounced chee), the vital force or energy of the human body. According to TCM, Qi is circulated in all parts of the body via energy channels or pathways called meridians.  This energy flow is more or less similar to the circulatory system and nervous system. If there is an interruption, blockage or imbalance in the flow of Qi it causes pain and illness; correction of this flow restores the body to balance. There are as many as 2,000 acupuncture points on the human body, which are connected by 20 pathways (12 main, 8 secondary), called meridians. These meridians conduct Qi. 

Various factors affect the smooth flow of Qi, such as injury, poor nutrition or improper diet, organ malfunction and infection by harmful microorganisms. Other factors that disturb the balanced flow of Qi are extreme climatic conditions (cold, wind, heat), as well as the emotional state (pleasure, dejection, stress) of an individual.

TCM acknowledges that true healing is a multidimensional process. This ancient holistic medical system, understands that the body, mind, spirit, and emotions must all be addressed in the healing journey. The mind and the emotions play a dominant role in creating wellness (or illness) and attracting disease. Qi is believed to regulate balance in the body.
