  • What is acupuncture?

    Acupuncture is a complete healthcare system that has been used for thousands of years to promote, restore and maintain good health. The philosophy underlying Acupuncture is that the body’s life force energy Qi (pronounced “Chee” ) flows around the body through channels called meridians. When we are in good health the Metsuyan Wellness acupuncture in Bethesda, Maryland and serving the Washington, DC metro area! Areas include Rockville, Gaithersburg, Chevy Chase, Northern Virginia!Qi flows around the body smoothly going to various organs, providing nourishment and protection. If the flow of Qi gets disrupted, blockages can occur and we can experience pain and illness. The flow of Qi can be disrupted internally by our emotional state, such as anger, grief, worry, stress or externally by factors such as injury, trauma, poor nutrition or infection. By inserting very fine sterile needles at specific points in the body, acupuncture promotes the body’s natural healing response and helps the Qi to flow freely and smoothly. Acupuncture works to maintain the body’s equilibrium by focusing on all aspects of wellbeing – physical and emotional. As well as treating the symptoms that a patient presents with, acupuncture treatments are aimed at the root of the condition, which can have a deeper and more permanent effect on the problem presented.
