How Acupuncture Works
A FREE Class with Acupuncturist Megan Bartelt
When performing acupuncture, a practitioner inserts tiny needles into the skin at strategic points in your body. Traditional Chinese medicine describes these strategic points as helping balance the flow of life force known as qi (pronounced chee) through the body. Western medicine believes the needles stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissues, which promotes healing.
Acupuncture has been used for centuries to help improve overall wellness and provide relief for health conditions. In her Oshkosh-based acupuncture practice, Megan Bartelt, L.Ac., MSOM, Dipl. Ac., has performed acupuncture to help people experiencing joint pain, tendinitis, auto-immune disorders, addiction, stress, anxiety and depression, neurodegenerative disorders and to promote overall health and well-being.
In this one-hour workshop, Acupuncturist Megan Bartelt will explain how acupuncture works, share experiences from her acupuncture practice and show how acupuncture may help you reach your wellness goals.
This class will be offered in the Co-op Community Room.
