Eden, Ogden Valley Acupuncture
Shan Yao Mountain Medicine Acupuncture and Chinese Herb Clinic of Eden, UT, is just a short drive up beautiful Ogden Canyon for Ogden City.
The ancient Chinese believed that there is a universal life energy called Chi or Qi, present in every living creature. This energy is said to circulate throughout the body along specific pathways that are called meridians or channels. As long as this energy flows freely, health is maintained, but once the flow is blocked, the system is disrupted and pain and illness occur. Imagine rivers that are blocked, leading to floods above the blockage and no water flow below. Acupuncture works to re-program and restore the normal flow of energy by stimulating points with very fine needles. This allows the body to re-balance and heal itself.
