The Chinese medical model is based on an energetic system (referred to as Qi, pronounced “chee.”) Together with blood, Qi flows in a circuit around the body along channels, or meridians- which have been mapped out by hundreds of practitioners over thousands of years.

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing technique that treats a wide range of conditions. By inserting hair-thin needles in specific points along the body, the acupuncturist is able to manipulate the flow of energy and regulate balance in the body.
Feng shui is an ancient art and science that was formalized over 3,000 years ago in China. In literal translation feng means "wind" and shui means "water." In Chinese culture, wind and water are associated with good health, and in turn, good fortune.
Acupuncture originated in China around 3,500 years ago and remains one of the oldest, most commonly used systems of healing in the world. Chinese medicine is still the primary medical system for 1/4 of the world’s population.
Traditional Chinese Medicine considers Qi (pronounced “chee”) to be our vital energy or life force. Qi flows along pathways or “meridians” which run the length of our limbs and to each of our organs. They form a network that looks a lot like the New York City Subway map. Like the subway, the various pathways overlap and are all critical to the network as a whole. TCM believes that there is a deep inter-connectedness between all aspects of our being—both internally and externally.
Health is a state where there is balanced and harmonious flow of Qi throughout our bodies. Conversely, imbalances can lead to many ailments. There are a variety of ways that Claudia helps you reestablish and maintain the smooth flow of energy, thus preserving health. Two of them are Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of hair thin needles at specific points in the body. These points are along the meridians mentioned previously and conduct the Qi. Each of these points act as a gate—controlling the flow of Qi on the specific meridian along with their corresponding organs. The insertion of needles allow the Qi to flow properly through the meridians.
Chinese herbs are also employed to maintain health, prevent illness, and restore vitality to the body. Herbal formulas are crafted to balance and harmonize the body from within—to strengthen us when we are weak, warm us when we are cold, calm us when we’re overactive, get us moving when we are sluggish, etc. The herbal formula that you may receive, like the acupuncture, is designed specifically for you based on your individual medical history and case!
