What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a complete and separate system of medicine that has been used in China and Asia for over 3,000 years and is now used widely throughout the world. Acupuncture is truly a holistic mind/body/spirit medicine and is safe, effective and causes no side effects.
Acupuncture consists of the gentle insertion and stimulation of thin, disposable sterile needles at strategic points near the surface of the body. Over 2,000 acupuncture points on the human body connect with 14 major pathways, called meridians. these meridians conduct Qi , or energy, between the surface of the body and internal organs. It is Qi that regulates spiritual, emotional, mental and physical balance. When the flow of Qi is disrupted through illness, injury, poor health habits, or other circumstances, pain and/or disease can result. Acupuncture helps to keep the normal flow of this energy unblocked, thereby enhanceimg the body’s natural tendency and ability to heal itself.
