Acupuncture is one of several modalities of Chinese medicine, in which hair-thin needles are inserted at various points of the body to restore energetic balance. Jay explains that his philosophy is that “less is more.” While some acupuncturists might choose to use many needles on a new patient, Jay prefers to get to know his patient and understand the true root of the problem – meaning that fewer needles will be required to produce the same effect.
The skilled placement of needles stimulates the flow of the vital energy, or Qi (Chi), along the body’s acupuncture meridians. By strategically positioning acupuncture needles at any of the hundreds of key points along the body’s meridians, TCM doctors assist in relieving blockages to stimulate a more balanced flow of Qi. Successful acupuncture treatments allow our innate healing mechanisms to flourish and promote optimal health in body, mind and spirit.More about Acupuncture with Jay Callender, LAc
