Koichi Miyashita, Ph.D., Licensed Acupuncturist
Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world. The thought is that the body’s vital energy (chi or Qi) circulates through channels, called meridians, which have branches connected to organs and bodily functions. Illness is attributed to an imbalance or interruption of Qi. Acupuncture helps to restore balance. It is a painless treatment which uses ultra-fine sterile needles to stimulate anatomical points on the body.
