Everyone seems to lack energy. Some people get more energy from certain foods, or movements. Others get energized by music, or deep breathing.
Asian cultures call energy "chi" which describes the life force. Movement characterizes "life." Many sources of energy exist all around us and we need many forms of it to live. For example, air brings energy. Food can be ingested and converted to usable fuel, or energy. Sunlight has certain energy qualities necessary for life.
Magnetic energy is also essential for life. People and other living things give off energy that is absorbed by other living things. Both biochemical and electromagnetic processes occur in the body. Electrical impulses travel down the entire length of a nerve, but when they get to the end, the continued transmission is done with chemical transmitters.
Typically, Western medicine uses biochemical agents to fix problems in the body. Movement is created by chemical reactions.
With Chinese medicine, homeopathy and some forms of osteopathy, the approach is more electromagnetic. With these electromagnetic approaches, movement is created by electrical or magnetic flows. The nerves in your body transmit messages through electrical impulses. When electrical impulses move along a nerve, a magnetic field is produced in the body similar to an electrical current passing through a wire, producing a magnetic field from the flow or movement of electrical particles in that wire.
Acupuncture is based on the belief that hidden pathways within our bodies flow with natural energy. It is assumed the energy flows are blocked, slowed, imbalanced or too strong, thus causing problems such as pain, stiffness, weakness, or disease. Tiny sterile needles are inserted gently into specific points on the body corresponding to these pathways, changing the internal energy flow. The acupuncture treatment stimulates or unblocks the energy flow to allow natural healing to begin.
The nervous system is the first system to develop in an embryo. It is thought that electrical impulses direct the cells in an embryo to develop into specialized body parts such as internal organs, skin, or muscle. As such, it stands to reason that perhaps electrical impulses can also affect changes in body parts in a fully developed body.
Many people, including some doctors think this is how positive thinking can change disease processes in the body. Thought patterns may be very important in physiological conditions. For more information this topic, many books are available such as Spontaneous Healing, by Andrew Weil, MD and Vibrational Medicine; The Secret Life of Your Cells, by Richard Stone.

Your immune system fights potential invaders like unfriendly bacteria and viruses. The stronger it is the healthier and more protected you will be. Your gut health is important in keeping your immune system working at its best. What you eat does matter. Much of the work of the body is done by the good bacteria that live in our digestive tract.
Here are some ideas you can start incorporating into your daily life to make you stronger:
We Are Open For Business
Your patient care, health and safety is our priority. We follow practices for Safe Healthcare Deliver in all settings. We require all healthcare personnel to perform good hand hygiene, environmental cleaning and disinfection.
The surfaces used for our patient care are wiped with SNAP II cleaner disinfectant (contains 60% alcohol C14) to disinfect exam tables, exercise mats, and equipment after each use. All linens are washed with detergent and bleach after a single use. Keeping everything clean is our main preventative to keeping you all safe.
If any of our staff isn't feeling well, they are advised to stay home to keep from spreading any germs.
If any of you are not feeling great, we advise you to call us to cancel your appointment and not come in to spread more germs and take care of yourselves by keeping hydrated, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds or more, keep away from others and rest.
We are taking guidance from the CDC, and the WHO, which recommends regular cleaning as one of the most important preventative measures we can take.
If you have any questions about your appointments, please call us at (626) 576 - 0591. We are open from Mondays - Fridays from 8 am - 5 pm.
