The intention of the chiropractic adjustment... is to remove any disruptions or distortions of this energy flow that may be caused by slight vertebral misalignments that we call subluxations. Chiropractors are trained to locate these subluxations and then to remove them, thereby restoring the normal flow of nerve energy in terms of both quality and quantity. The idea is that if your master system, which is the nervous system, is healthy and functioning well, then your other systems under its control will also function in a more optimal fashion.
The intent of acupuncture therapy is to promote health and alleviate dis-ease. The method by which this is accomplished, though it may seem strange and mysterious to many, has been time tested over thousands of years and continues to be validated today. The perspective from which Dr. Lee views health and dis-ease hinges on concepts of "vital energy," "energetic balance" and "energetic imbalance." Just as the Western medical doctor monitors the blood flowing through blood vessels and the messages traveling via the nervous system, Dr. Lee assesses the flow and distribution of this "vital energy" or “qi” within its pathways, known as "meridians and channels".
