Choose to Feel Better for Longer: Healing Acupuncture for Naperville, IL
Our minds and our bodies are tough, but they cannot operate at full throttle without some wear and fatigue. Whether we’re dealing with recurring aches and pains or the daily stresses of life, we need rest and relief – a return to our peaceful selves.
We might try many remedies, such as improving our diet, relaxing or exercising more, seeing the doctor, pursuing therapy or taking prescribed pills. These approaches may provide us with a sense of comfort and resolution for a time. Eventually, however, the ailments return, and we seek ways to manage them again.

The Power of Acupuncture for Naperville, IL
Acupuncture uses very fine needles on the skin’s surface to stimulate specific acupuncture points on the body. This stimulation frees the movement of blocked qi (pronounced chee) in the body.
Qi is the Chinese concept of the life force or energy that powers the body to perform. This essence courses through the body’s pathways with start and end points on the head, hands and feet. When qi is abundant and moving correctly in concert with properly functioning organs, there is health.
Factors such as disease, pathogens and physical or emotional trauma can disrupt the flow of qi. When your qi is blocked and your organs are out of balance, your body sends distress signals that require attention. Through acupuncture, blocked qi is freed again to promote and maintain your health.
