What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years and is one of the oldest and most commonly used medical procedures in the world.   Acupuncture assists energy (Qi) flow via meridians throughout the body, like electrical lines transmit light throughout a house.  Meridians mirror the blood and lymphatic systems of the body nourishing and increasing vital energy or Qi.

Acute or chronic pain acts as an obstruction, blocking the meridians of the body.  Lights off!  With acupuncture, delicate needles are gently inserted along meridians at specific sites to unblock the obstruction and re-establish or increase energy flow.  Lights on! You feel better because your Qi is moving through the medians with greater ease and harmony.

One scientific explanation known as the Neural Gate Theory explains that acupuncture stimulates the nervous system to release pain-reducing chemicals in the spinal cord, brain and muscles. These chemicals either change the perception of pain or trigger the release of hormones that assist the internal regulating system of the body to achieve biochemical balance.

Acupuncture treatment improves energy (Qi) flow and biochemical balance, supporting the body in the healing process, which in turn promotes physical and emotional well-being.
