What Does Acupuncture Do
Acupuncture is a very safe and effective way to improve one’s health. An integral part of Chinese Medicine, it has been in use for over 2,000 years. Recent studies show that acupuncture can help decrease pain, improve circulation, improve digestion, boost your immune system and curb cravings. It is used for many complaints and health issues.
What Should I Expect During a Treatment
Acupuncture is virtually painless. Tiny needles about the size of a shaft of hair are used to stimulate points on the body. They are pre sterilized, one time use disposable needles. Many people report a feeling of deep relaxation during the treatment and improved energy after.
How does Acupuncture Work
The general theory behind how acupuncture works is based on
the idea that for healthy physiological function to occur in the body,
our cells need proper circulation of nutrients, blood and energy.
Acupuncture does this by stimulating points strategically placed on
meridians or “channels” that flow throughout the body. These channels
are not the same as but look and act similar to our arteries, veins and
nerves.They carry qi “energy” all over our body.
What Is Qi
Qi is the vital energy in all living things. It radiates from every living cell of
plants, animals or humans. Our health depends on the quantity, quality
and balance of Qi in our body. It is the force that gives us movement and function. Life is not possible without it.
