What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a component of traditional Chinese and Korean medicine over 2,500 years ago. And acupuncture and herbal medicines are still a foundational treatment for chronic and acute pains in China and Korean in modern days. It is based on the belief that living beings have a vital energy, so called chi (say "chee") that circulates through invisible energy lines known as meridians on the body. Each meridian is associated with a different organ system. An imbalance in the flow of chi throughout a meridian is how disease begins.

Why Acupuncture?

Most pharmaceutical medications are effective in relieving localized pain, but they rarely deal with the root cause of the pain. In many cases, the medications are used to relieve the symptoms temporarily and mask the underlying source. Consequently, months and years can pass by before people realize their ailments have developed with further complications. Acupuncture is a natural approach to regain balance and recover from acute and chronic pain.


How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture is based on the theory that energy, called chi (say "chee"), flows through and around your body along pathways called meridians. Acupuncturists believe that illness occurs when something blocks or unbalances your chi. Acupuncture is a way to unblock or influence chi and help it flow back into balance. The functional balancing or adjusting is done and completed by the body mechanism.


To summarize its treatment mechanisms with Western bio-chemistry terminology:


  • Acupuncture stimulates the release of pain-relieving endorphins.
