How Does Acupuncture Work?
The intent of acupuncture therapy is to promote and alleviate pain and suffering. Acupuncture treatments consist of inserting ultra-thin, sterile, disposable needles into the skin to balance the flow of energy called “Qi” (pronounced “chee”). By removing obstructions to the normal flow of energy that develop as a result of disease, acupuncture allows the body to heal itself. Since the needles are not being used to deliver medicine into the body, acupuncture needles are much thinner than needles used for traditional medicine. Along with relief of a condition, most people experience relaxation, increased vitality, and a sense of well-being from acupuncture treatments.
A brief overview of the treatment…
Acupuncture originated in China about 5,000 years ago. It’s a classic Chinese medical therapy and natural healing process.
Acupuncture is founded in traditional Chinese medicine and is based on the understanding of the function of the human body. It treats patients by inserting needles at acupuncture points in the body. Stimulating these points can unlock the obstruction in the energy channel (called meridian, like a energy river flowing through the body, built up by some important points) by correcting imbalances in the flow of Qi through the meridian. Acupuncture theory is based on bodily functions regulated by Qi that flows through our bodies. Any disruption of Qi flow is responsible for disease.
The National Institutes of Health and World Health Organization now endorse the use of acupuncture for a wide array of conditions based on over 40 years of extensive research by Western medical researchers.
