Similar to how rivers flow through the terrain of the landscape, subtle energy called ‘Qi’ (pronounced “chi”) flows through our bodies. In our bodies, these “rivers” are called meridians that connect and integrate all aspects of ourselves, from the physical to the mental and spiritual.
Through the insertion of very thin, stainless steel needles into points along the meridians, acupuncture treats imbalances in energy flow that are caused by factors such as stress, physical trauma, a poor diet, emotional difficulties, and toxins in the environment.

The National Institutes of Health endorses acupuncture for treatment of the following conditions:

*Menopausal Symptoms
*Menstrual Cramps
*Lower Back Pain
*Irritable Bowel Syndrome
*Chemotherapy side effects and immune system support

Acupuncture can quickly and safely address specific symptoms or be used to reduce stress, boost immunity, improve mood, and enhance one’s overall sense of well being. Many EvenTide patients seek acupuncture treatment for specific symptoms and, long after these have lessened or disappeared, remain in treatment to assist with personal growth, spiritual development, or enhance overall wellness.
