Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine
IQ&IM’s wellness services offer acupuncture and Chinese medicine services in both private and group settings:
- Qi-energy acupuncture
- Qi-energy assessment and diagnosis
- Chinese herbal medicine
- Condition-specific Yi Ren® Qigong exercises
Acupuncturists at IQ&IM’s wellness services incorporate health information gathered during the client’s intake, including a client’s health history and qi energy assessment, to formulate a treatment plan that is suitable for the client’s condition.
IQ&IM’s acupuncturists partner with clients to address a range of health conditions by balancing the flow of qi/energy throughout the body. Acupuncture sessions provide the support needed to:
- Facilitate healing
- Help strengthen the Qi-Mind-Body-Spirit connection for overall wellness
- Promote balance and optimal organ function
- Reduce pain
- Restore bio-mechanical function.
An acupuncture session at IQ&IM begins with a qi-energetic assessment, which involves using Yi Ren® Qigong to connect with a client’s acupuncture meridian network and organ system to observe any imbalances within the body.
Using computer terms, this is like “clicking with a mouse” on a client’s energetic health and “copying and pasting” that information temporarily to the provider’s energy system. This enables the provider to observe what is happening energetically inside the client’s energy system. These clues show which energy dynamics may be at the root of certain wellness concerns and how to work with the client to facilitate healing and wellness.

Chinese Herbal Medicine
Acupuncturists at IQ&IM’s wellness services may use the Energetic Assessment and Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis to design a custom herbal formula or to suggest a patent herbal formula for the client to take in order to continue to support his/her treatment plan for positive change between acupuncture visits.
Condition-Specific Yi Ren® Qigong Exercises
Sessions at IQ&IM’s wellness services may include Yi Ren® Qigong exercises that are specific to the health condition of a client and address the particular acupuncture meridian and organ system that needs more balance or added support. One might think of qigong as similar to acupuncture without needles because the exercises also function to regulate, nourish, and balance the body’s qi-energy for greater health.
These qigong exercises can be practiced daily to enhance the treatment plan and allow clients to manage their health proactively at home. They will assist to:
- Relieve pain
- Reduce stress
- Promote vitality
- Enhance awareness of the body’s intelligence for healing and wellness.
