Acupuncture is a time tested medical practice with a history over three-thousand years. Acupuncture is recognized by the National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization to be an effective treatment for many illnesses and conditions, doing so by stimulating the body to naturally correct imbalances in the flow of energy – Qi (Chee).
This is done by inserting ultra-fine, sterile disposable acupuncture needles underneath the skin at specific points in the body. With the insertion of fine needles the energy can be moved or redirected to where it is needed most.
In this way the body’s balance can be restored and the illness resolved with the patients compliance to make positive lifestyle changes.
These acupuncture points are related to energy pathways or meridians that run throughout the entire length of the body.
When the flow of Qi is disrupted due to stress, trauma, poor diet, injury or other condition, pain, illness, and even psychological and emotional disorders can result.
Energy can become blocked and manifest itself in areas that are painful, the body may be cold or hot, or a different color.
These signs can help determine which points are most suitable. Harmony is reached internally through medical treatment and externally through the promotion of positive lifestyle changes.
Treating the patient as an individual is at the core of the acupuncture treatment and true healing involves the whole being of a person, The scientific world has different opinions on how acupuncture works; yet, years of clinical trials validate its effectiveness.
