Acupuncture with Dr. James Kelly
Acupuncture is a complex system of examination, diagnosis and treatment based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is primarily a preventive medicine, that is, it creates and maintains health, but is often used as an analgesic technique which brings relief from pain.
Acupuncture is based upon the principal that any dysfunction is the result of an imbalance of the body’s natural energetic activity. The insertion of fine sterile disposable needles in specific “acupoints” is utilized to open up and regulate the natural flow of the body’s vital energy known as “Qi”, thereby restoring health and balance to the body. When Qi is flowing properly throughout our meridian pathways, the body’s natural processes will operate in a rhythmic and harmonious way and the body is then able to heal itself.
