Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing practice in which hair-thin needles are inserted in precise locations on the body in order to help the body restore or maintain proper energy flow along pathways called meridians. According to Chinese Medicine, imbalances of this energy, called “qi” (pronounced “chee”) are the root of illness. Scientific research has shown that acupuncture helps to regulate the nervous system and restore homeostasis -the balanced and optimal state of the body- by increasing blood flow in the body, reducing inflammation, and regulating production of neurotransmitters and endorphins, our body’s natural pain and stress relievers.
Acupuncture can help heal a variety of conditions, ranging from acute and chronic pain, to infertility, anxiety, and allergies. Patients are diagnosed not just by their main symptoms, but by a pattern identification method that takes all the systems of the body into account and looks for underlying imbalances that are contributing to the symptoms. Acupuncture treatments are designed to help the body heal itself.
Needle phobic? Don’t worry. The needles acupuncturists use are the width of a hair and virtually painless. Additionally, many acupuncturists employ other modalities of Chinese Medicine including cupping, gua sha, moxabustion and tui na medical massage, as well as Chinese herbal medicine and nutritional guidance to help balance your body without the use of needles.
