Acupuncture is a component of a comprehensive natural health care system called "Traditional Chinese Medicine," which has been used in Asian countries for thousands of years to preserve health and diagnose, treat, and prevent illness.
Very thin, sterile, disposable medical needles are inserted through the skin to produce physiological effects with the intent of relieving a health condition or symptom caused by an internal imbalance.
When acupuncture needles are inserted through the skin into acupuncture points, they stimulate the central nervous system.
This, in turn, releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These physiological changes stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.
What Can Acupuncture Help With?
The general theory is that proper physiological function and health depend on the circulation of nutrients, substances, and energy called Qi through a network of “channels” or “meridians.” This network connects every organ and part of the body, providing balance, regulation, and coordination of physiological processes. Acupuncture treats health conditions by stimulating “acu-points”. Stimulation of the appropriate acu-points through acupuncture treatments helps to restore sufficient, continuous, and even flow of Qi and other nutrients throughout the body, restoring health and balance to the body while relieving pain and other symptoms.
Because acupuncture works by stimulating the body's own healing mechanisms, acupuncture provides a natural, drug-free approach to getting well or out of pain without the risks of side effects from unnecessary surgeries or medications.
Many people who are viewed as being in great health by Western medicine standards, use acupuncture to improve their quality of life by using acupuncture to help remain pain and illness free. Many people report that acupuncture helps to enhance their mood, thus decreasing stress, increase energy, improve sleep, regulate hormonal cycles, improve digestion, strengthen immune system to fight off allergies, colds, and flus, ease aches and pain, decrease muscle and joint inflammation, hasten recovery from surgeries and injuries, and manage chronic health conditions.
