Acupuncture is based on the flow of Qi, or vital energy, through pathways in the body known as channels or meridians.
Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have used this noninvasive medical system to diagnose and help millions of people get well and stay healthy.
An acupuncturist will place fine, sterile needles at specific acupoints on the body. This activates the body’s Qi and promotes natural healing by enhancing recuperative power, immunity and physical and emotional health.
It can improve the overall function and wellbeing. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems.
Improved Health and quality of life, because acupuncture balances the body’s energy systems and helps to balance these energy systems through acupuncture points. These points are gateways to the body’s energy flow. They help to take the “load” off of excess and redirect that Qi (loosely translated as energy) to the areas in your body that are deficient.
Stress reduction, this is also accomplished by balancing your body’s energy. Experience high-stress levels day after day makes it very difficult for your body to relax and balance; regular acupuncture treatments are a powerful way to enable this relaxation and balance.
Pain reduction, helping with chronic and acute pain is one of the most common applications of acupuncture. Arthritis, neck pain, back pain, menstrual pain, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, joint sprains & strains, digestive pain etc. are very commonly helped by acupuncture. If you experience migraine, cluster and other headaches you can often find relief right there on the table. The results can be amazing.
Improve and faster recovery from injury, illness, and surgery, this can be accomplished using acupuncture to increase circulation, reduce inflammation and reduce scarring.
Emotional balance, Achieving emotional balance can be both the primary focus of acupuncture treatment and is also a positive “side effect” when you use acupuncture for other reasons. Depression, anxiety, frustration, and worry are a few emotional imbalances treated.
Respiratory health, this can be very effectively achieved with acupuncture, Allergies, asthma, sinusitis, rhinitis are conditions that are positively impacted with acupuncture every day.
Insomnia and other sleep issues are also very commonly addressed by acupuncture.
Strengthening your immune system, this can be accomplished through balancing your body’s energy systems with acupuncture. Stress, illness, environmental toxins, and allergies, are just a few of the causes of a weakened immune system.
Premenstrual (PMS) and Menopausal Symptom Relief, These conditions are very common, of course, and acupuncture is very effective in treating the symptoms associated with them. Headaches, cramping, sleep disturbances, mood swings, night sweats, cycle length and duration, and pimples are just a few of the common symptoms.
Reduction of Side Effects of Chemo and Radiation Therapies, this can also be a very powerful benefit of acupuncture.
