What Is Acupuncture?

Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture address the original causes that trigger pains and use a holistic approach to promote health at the optimal level.

 

Acupuncture  has been a component of traditional Chinese and Korean medicine for over 2,500 years.  Acupuncture and herbal medicines still are foundational treatments for chronic and acute pains in China and Korea 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..

 

Acupuncturists insert needles into specified points along meridian lines to influence the restore balance to the flow of chi. There are over 1,000 acupuncture points on the body.

Why Acupuncture?

Most pharmaceutical medications effectively relieve localized pain, but they rarely deal with the root cause of the pain. In many cases, the medications temporarily relieve the symptoms 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 regaining balance and recovering 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.
  • Acupuncture affects the release of neurotransmitters, which are the substances that transmit nerve impulses to your brain.
  • Acupuncture influences the autonomic nervous system.
  • Acupuncture stimulates circulation.
