Ancient Chinese medicine says that the body contains energy pathways through which qi, the body's vital energy, flows. When a passage becomes blocked, one way to restore bodily balance—and quell such common ailments as allergies, fertility problems, stress, and hypertension—is acupuncture. At Lewinter Acupuncture, Andrea Lewinter completes a consultation to figure out where a patient's qi imbalances are before she inserts thin acupuncture needles into the affected area, with little to no discomfort for the patient. Afterward, qi is back to circulating freely, restoring balance and boosting the body's ability to heal itself.
