What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which has been used in prevention and treatment of many conditions for over two thousand years. The medicine is based on the theory that all of nature, including everything from the universe itself to the human body, exists in a balance between opposite yet complimentary forces. Energy in a healthy body flows smoothly through specific pathways, or channels. When there is an energetic imbalance, insufficiency, or blockage in one or more of these pathways, symptoms of disease or pain develop. The goal of an acupuncture treatment is to reestablish a balanced flow of energy throughout the body.
Treatment involves insertion of extremely fine needles at specific points on the body, to unblock and rebalance energy flow, allowing the body to return to its natural and harmonious state of health and well being. The unique power behind this type of medicine comes from its ability to treat an individual person and not a disease or a symptom. Acupuncture stimulates the body’s own natural healing process and without side effects.
