Acupuncture has helped billions of people over the past 5000 years. Acupuncture care helps to relieve symptoms and signs of many health problems.

At the Thousand Oaks Natural Healthcare and Acupuncture Center the goal of this dynamic and integrated health care system is to activate the natural, self –healing abilities of the body.

Here’s how it works. Inside of you is an intelligent, energetic system that maintains health and balance. Einstein showed us that everything is made of, and radiates, energy. This subtle form of energy supports, shapes and enlivens our physical body and activates our lives. For the past 5000 years, practitioners of acupuncture have called this intelligent energy, Qi (pronounced” Chee”.
We at Thousand Oaks Acupuncture recognize that numerous cultures have described this energy and called it bay many names: prana, baraka, pneuma, spirit, wakan, material force, orgone, ether and ruach.
Qi is matter on the verge of becoming energy, or energy at the point of materializing.
Qi is the vital energy in all living things, from the tallest tree to the smallest cell.
Qi is a combination of energies, mixed together from our food, air and inherited constitution. Qi provides the power to accomplish everyday activities. It is necessary for growth, development, movement, maintenance of body temperature, protection against illness and disease, and overall regulation of the body. Our health is influenced by the quality and balance of Qi.
Ancient practitioner said “When Qi gathers, the physical body is formed; when Qi disperses, the body passes on “
Qi is the root of a human being. It’s the basis of all phenomenon in the universe.
