What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the therapies included in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is used extensively by one quarter of the world’s population residing in Asia and it has been used for over 3000 years. Its popularity is now growing rapidly in the Western world. This ancient art of healing involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points of the body. Acupuncture, along with herbal treatments, nutrition, and exercise, works with the natural vital energies of the body to promote its ability to heal itself.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western medicine. Over thousands of years of practice, Chinese physicians have discovered a system of cyclic energy flowing in the human body called, “Qi” along specific pathways called meridians. Each meridian is associated with a particular physiological system and internal organ. When the Qi in the pathways becomes obstructed, deficient, excessive, or imbalanced, disease occurs.  The trained Acupuncturist will then determine the diagnoses from the Chinese Medical perspective and treat the patient to help re-balance the flow of energy throughout the blocked meridians and help to eliminate disease.
