About Acupuncture and the Natural Care Center at Tai Sophia Institute
Acupuncture stems from traditional wisdom that developed in and around China over a period of approximately 5,000 years. It includes the concept of qi, often translated as “energy,” and is based on a persistent exploration of the parallels between the rhythmic movements of nature and how similar states (both in and out of balance) manifest in all aspects of the human condition.
Acupuncture is arguably the oldest, most commonly practiced medical procedure in the world and is used by one-third of the world as a primary healthcare system. In the United States, acupuncture is performed legally by professionals who have completed national and/or state education and clinical requirements. Acupuncture involves the use of sterile, single-use-only needles that are about the width of a human hair and are inserted into the body with a specific intention to elicit an appropriate movement of energy. The desired result is to offer the patient a concrete sense of spiritual, emotional, and physical balance. Effective use of acupuncture treats underlying imbalances and promotes harmony within the whole person.
For nearly 40 years, Tai Sophia Institute’s Natural Care Center practitioners have been partnering with clients to bring forth the extraordinary wisdom and vitality of the human body to heal and be well. Services offered include acupuncture treatments, Chinese herbal medicine consultations, Western herbal medicine consultations, and integrative nutrition consultations.
