Acupuncture to heal

Acupuncture can be used as a powerful form of medicine capable of addressing a vast array of health issues from pain, allergies, migraines and chronic degenerative diseases.

What is Acupuncture and how does it help?

Acupuncture is a holistic technique that stems from Traditional Chinese Medicine in which thin, sterile needles are inserted into the body to stimulate specific points to help that body heal itself. Acupuncture works to balance the yin and yang in the body to maintain balance (homeostasis) in the body. It releases natural, pain relieving substances the come from within the body that provide an analgesic effect that is much more powerful that pain killers. It improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the oldest and most widely used health care systems in the world. It has been practiced in many countries over the past 2500 years. Although it is considered to be a relatively new concept in the west, its strengths are catching on as a powerful form of medicine capable of addressing a vast array of health issues from pain, allergies, migraines and chronic degenerative diseases. It is extremely effective in treating both acute and chronic conditions. It is also outstanding as preventative care. It is a form of medicine rooted in the premise that both acute and chronic disease result from imbalances in the body's flow of energy (Qi). These imbalances are corrected by the use of acupuncture and the other adjunct modalities explained above.

What are Acupuncture Points?

Acupuncture points are located throughout the entire body along energy meridians. They promote the body to heal itself. There are 12 main meridians and 8 extra meridians which have specific functions and treat specific conditions. The aim of acupuncture is to promote the flow of “qi”, or life force energy within the body by inserting acupuncture needles into specific points along the body’s meridians. Meridians, which circulate the body’s qi run throughout the body and loosely follow the pathways of blood vessels or nerves. Acupuncture works to promote the free flow of qi and thus reduce pain and other disease states.

There is a saying in Chinese medicine that states where there is no free flow there is pain and disease. Thus the most basic aim of acupuncture is to restore the free flow of qi. There is extensive empirical evidence that acupuncture works, and western research studies continue to explore the mechanisms, from a Western Medical perspective, that make acupuncture such a powerful treatment modality.
