Dr. Betty Rigi, Chapman Acupuncture Clinic

Located in Tustin, California, licensed acupuncturist Dr. Betty Rigi, L.Ac., Ph.D., has practiced this ancient art of healing for nearly 20 years.

Dr. Rigi comes from three generations of Eastern medicine practitioners. With a deep understanding of how acupuncture works with a persons' energy, Dr. Rigi's clients experience better quality of life through freedom from physical pain, emotional distress and chronic illness.

Passionate about her practice, Dr. Rigi says Eastern healing "just makes sense." She says these effective techniques "boil down to the balance of yin and yang and understanding the 5 elements."

From 1997 - May 2014, she practiced out of the City of Orange. As of June 1, 2014, Dr. Rigi started her practice in her new office in Tustin, California.

Chinese and Japanese Techniques

The whole of Chinese medicine can be reduced to the theory of yin and yang and their interdependence. The functions of the human body can be seen as shifts of yin and yang through the internal organs.

Dating back 5,000 years, acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles—sometimes in conjunction with electrical stimulation—through the body's surface to influence the physiological functioning of the body.

The Qi

The body has an energy force running throughout it known as "qi," (also spelled "chi," pronounced "chee"), which consists of essential life activities that include spiritual, emotional, mental and the physical aspects.

"The flow of qi in the body combined with the universal forces of yin and yang influences a person's health," Dr. Rigi says. "If there is blockage in this flow, yin and yang become imbalanced, which can result in health problems."

Dr. Rigi finds that while Japanese acupuncture doesn't require forceful insertion of needles, she incorporates the techniques into her practice because "it works well with energy."
