Acupuncture is one of the oldest medical procedures in the world, tracing it origins to China up to 4,000 years ago. It can be used to treat a broad range of conditions and is a treatment which encourages the patient’s body to cure itself. Improves body function and the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic points – referred to as acupuncture points.
Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system and digestive system. By stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture can help resolve pain, improve sleep, digestive function and sense of wellbeing.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on an ancient philosophy that describes the universe and the body in terms of two opposing forces: Yin and Yang. When these forces are in balance the body is healthy. Energy called “Qi” flows along specific pathways called meridians throughout the body, this constant flow of energy keeps the yin and yang forces balanced. However, if the flow of energy gets blocked, like water getting stuck behind a dam, the disruption can lead to pain, lack of function or illness. Acupuncture therapy can release blocked Qi in the body and stimulate function invoking the body’s natural healing response through various physiological systems.
