Acupuncture is an ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine that dates back roughly 2500 years. It is used to prevent and treat various illness and conditions. It involves inserting thin needles into the skin at different depths at various acupuncture points to stimulate a response.
How does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture works to improve the body’s organ function and stimulate its natural healing process. Acupuncture works with the body’s energy, which in Chinese medicine is called, “Qi” (pronounced “Chee”). This energy flows and circulates throughout the entire body and through specific pathways called meridians. When our energy is obstructed or there is an imbalance within the body (like a river attempting to flow through a dam), the disrupted flow can cause illness, pain or a lack of function in the body. By needling and stimulating acupuncture points along these meridians, it can release the blocked energy and restore the natural physiological processes. Acupuncture can create a sense of well-being and ultimately bring the body back into a state of balance.
