Balance is critical to one's health and wellness, in biology this is known as homeostasis. The body is constantly striving to maintain internal stability; coordinating the response of various physiological systems (i.e. circulatory, nervous, immune and endocrine systems) in response to any situation or stimulus. Modern life, with all its stressors, can put the body in a constant state of “fight or flight” mode, making it difficult for our bodies to maintain balance. Imbalance can result in disorders such as pain, injury, insomnia, digestive issues, gynecological disorders, allergies, depression, susceptibility to colds, and a myriad of other complications.
Acupuncture helps restore one's natural balance so that organs and bodily systems can work together in harmony. This sets the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own optimal health.
