What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a system of medicine that is over 3,000 years old and originated in the Orient. Acupuncture works by balancing the body's natural flow of Qi (life energy). Its principles are widely based on the laws of nature. This system of healing allows the body to maintain natural homeostasis and promote its own natural healing.

Traditional Acupuncture is a deep level of treatment that is directed at underlying imbalances that cause symptoms and disease. These imbalances can occur on a body, mind and spirit level and all of these are connected. Disease or illness is often caused by the Qi not flowing well or not flowing in the proper direction.

How Acupuncture Works

Acupuncture works by inserting needles just below the skin surface at particular locations on the body called acupuncture points. These points are located all over the body and run along channels referred to as meridians.

Insertion of the needles aids the Qi in starting to move and move in the correct direction which is necessary to promote health.

Acupuncture Acceptance

Acupuncture has been endorsed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Acupuncture addresses many symptoms and diseases at many levels of functioning. However, it does have limitations and should be used in conjunction with other health care practices when appropriate.
