What Is Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a complex branch of ancient Chinese medicine, and the word literally means “needle piercing", the practice of inserting very fine needles into the skin to stimulate specific anatomic points in the body (called acupoints or acupuncture points).  Along with the usual method of puncturing the skin with fine needles, practitioners of acupuncture also use heat, pressure, friction, suction, or impulses of electromagnetic energy to stimulate the points.  The acupoints are stimulated to balance the movement of energy in the body to restore health.
Acupuncture promotes natural healing.  It can improve recuperative power, enhance immunity, support physical and emotional health and improve overall function and well-being.  It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical conditions.
As in any form of healing, the patient’s attitude, diet, determination and lifestyle will affect the outcome of a course of treatment.



What Does An Acupuncturist Do?

After discussing your medical history, feeling your pulse and looking at your tongue, an Acupuncturist inserts extremely fine, stainless steel, sterile needles into specific points along the meridians (energetic pathways) of your body.  The insertion of needles signals the body to correct imbalances in the flow of Qi (pronounced “chee”), or Life Energy.  Once this is done, Qi is free to circulate throughout the body, providing adequate nourishment where necessary.  This eliminates pain, restores balance and harmony, and ultimately leads to optimal health.
