What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting ultra-fine needles into specific points of energy that are located along 14 Meridians, or Channels, that run the length of the entire body. There are 349 points that are divided into 49 individual points and 300 double points. Also, there are 40 "extra" points that are not associated with any particular meridians. These points and meridians, mapped out millions of years ago, and confirmed by consistent practice, have shown that skillful insertion and manipulation of specific points will produce predictable results in the body.
How does acupuncture work?
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine there is a continuous flow of energy (called Chi or Qi) throughout the body. Blockage of the energy flow is the cause of illness or pain. Stimulating the acupuncture points gets the energy flow flowing, thereby relieving pain or illness.
Why should I see an acupuncturist?
Acupuncture is not meant to replace Western medicine for certain types of conditions like severe trauma. However, it does have a place in the treatment of ailments associated with our modern lifestyles and the general changes our bodies experience with aging. Chinese medicine offers a natural alternative to surgery, or pills, as well as a different way of looking at health. Chinese medicine views the body as a whole, and considers the effect of the mind and spirit on it, while Western medicine tends to separate and focus on specific parts of the body only. Chinese medicine is a gentle and minimally invasive form of treatment.
