Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese tradition that is as much an art form as it is a health practice. Solara uses acupuncture in San Diego as a component of our mental health services. This practice stems from the belief that an unobstructed, continuous flow of energy (qi) through the body is what promotes physical and mental health.
When this qi is disrupted or unbalanced, mental and physical symptoms arise. Acupuncture, the painless placing of sterilized needles into specific parts of the body, is meant to promote physical healing, removing qi blockages and imbalances to alleviate pain and distress and promote healing.
