What is Acupuncture?

Barrington AcupunctureAcupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice founded on the study and conviction that mankind is a microcosmic reflection of the harmonics of the macrocosmic forces that surround us, that we interact with and are a part of. Symptoms are a manifestation of disruptive/turbulent energetics.  Acupuncture’s focus is to define, restore, and promote harmonics in our energy fields which defines good health and well being.

Meridians defining the energy construct and flow within us were discovered along with attributes of individual points more than four thousand years ago.

Yin and Yang simply designate the opposites in our physical and emotional construct that need to be in balance with one another.

Many points have internal reflections and all work to restore and maintain balance within us harmonizing the mind, organ systems, sympathetic nervous system and musculoskeletal systems in particular.
