Acupuncture 101


September 30, 2019
06:00 PM until 07:30 PM


Chinese medicine is an over 3,000 year old science, so trying to wrap our brains around what it is and why it works can be confusing and overwhelming. This class helps you understand the what and the why behind this ancient medicine. In a fun, practical and personal way we will break down what Chinese medicine is and how it relates to modern science and today’s medicine.

In this class we will attempt to answer the following questions:

  • What is Qi (pronounced chee) and how does it ‘flow’ in my body?
  • What are the meridians and what importance to they hold?
  • What is yin and yang?
  • What are the 5-Elements and how do they apply to me and my body?
  • What is actually happening in the physical body during acupuncture?
  • What is the state of research about how this medicine works?

Please bring a friend or family member who might be thinking about trying acupuncture, but wants to know more about what it is first!
