In traditional Chinese Medicine, energy passes through meridians that course throughout your entire body. This energy is known as Qi. When Qi is blocked or stagnates, this causes the blood running through your veins and arteries to stagnate as well. This can cause pain or other unhealthy manifestations relating to your physical or emotional well-being.
During acupuncture, very fine needles are inserted at local and distal points to the stagnation. This unblocks and moves Qi and blood, helping your body return to an energetic and physically balanced state.
At Staszak, the use of physical therapy, massage therapy, and acupuncture together helps patients to reach their optimal health and healing ability. When the body is injured and in pain, the best medicine is internal and external movement. Internally, acupuncture helps circulate new blood to heal the area of injury and clear out the stagnated blood that holds debris from the injured site. Externally, physical therapy retrains the muscles and other connective tissues in the body to function and move naturally.
