WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?

Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used systems of healing in the world. Originating in China some 3,500 years ago, only

in the last three decades has it become popular in the United States.

 

Acupuncture is now gaining recognition as an important complement

to western medicine.

 

The World Health Organization (WHO) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) have endorsed acupuncture as an effective and safe form of

therapy for a variety of diseases and with a wide range of benefits.

 

Acupuncture is the insertion of very thin needles into certain acupuncture points that correspond to the patient’s health condition.

HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?

The theory behind acupuncture’s ability to treat pain and disease is based on an energetic model of the human body.

Vital energy, or Qi (pronounced “chee”) flows through the body on specific pathways called meridians. Each pathway is associated with an internal organ.

Every organ network has a corresponding set of channels.

 

The acupuncture points are located in small depressions in the skin called “gates” where the channels come closest to the surface.

 

There are as many as hundreds acupuncture points on the human body.

Pain or disease occurs in the body when there is a deficiency or an imbalance of the energy in the meridians. Acupuncture points are specific locations along the meridians.

 

Over the centuries, it has been documented that the insertion of a very

fine needle at a given point has a very predictable effect on the energy that passes through that point, restoring balance in the meridian.

 

The goal of an acupuncture treatment is to renew the healthy flow of Qi, restores and invigorates proper functions to balance the body.
