Acupuncture

closeup of acupuncture treatment on male backAcupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a complete and separate system of medicine used in China and Asia for over 3,000 years and widely used throughout the world. This type of holistic mind/body/spirit medicine is recognized as a safe and effective treatment. The ancient art of acupuncture works deep within the body’s energy network to release stagnations that may cause pain and illness.

How Does It Work?

Acupuncture consists of the gentle insertion and stimulation of tiny, flexible, and disposable sterile needles at well-established acupoints near the surface of the body. Over 2,000 acupuncture points on the human body connect with 14 major pathways, called meridians. These meridians conduct Qi, or energy, between the surface of the body and the internal organs. It is Qi that regulates spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical balance.

When the flow of Qi is disrupted through illness, injury, poor health habits, or other circumstances, pain or disease can result. Acupuncture helps keep the normal flow of this energy unblocked. Thereby enhancing the body’s natural tendency and ability to heal itself and gradually bringing the body into harmony. The flow of energy is restored, and the body has new resources to heal.
