What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a system of healing that originated in China thousands of years ago and is based on laws of nature and life energy known as qi, pronounced chee. The idea is that energy flows through human beings much like rivers and streams flow along the surface of the earth. Health is the result of free-flowing qi; conversely, illness is the result of qi that’s out of balance because of blockages. Through the use of very fine needles inserted into specific anatomical sites, acupuncture assists nature in unblocking the flow of qi and restoring overall balance.

“I have had migraines for close to 3 years…pain that lasts off and on for days at a time….honestly unbearable. I have been to see Kathleen twice and I have been migraine free! I really feel like it is a miracle! No pill has ever done what acupuncture has done for me. Not only did I get relief, but I also learned some calming and relaxing skills from Kathleen to help me make it through the day. I recommend Artemesia to anyone!”
