WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a natural, safe, and effective treatment method based on Chinese medicine — a system of healing that works with the natural regenerative abilities of the body. Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese medical technique of applying ultra-thin needles, or filaments, to specific points on the body (known as acupoints) related to energy pathways (known as meridians) that run throughout the body to activate the body’s life-force energy known as “Qi”.

We place the hair-thin filaments into specific points along the meridians, each with their own unique function. Western medicine recognizes that there is an abundance of connections between blood vessels, nerve bundles, and lymph tissue where these points are located. The acupoints function to restore balance to the body’s energy, and strengthen the body’s natural abilities to heal. Acupuncture has been cited by the Acupuncture Evidence Project (a more comprehensive and recent evaluation based on the World Health Organization review from 2003) as effectively treating 117 conditions* including allergies, asthma, back pain, carpal tunnel, colds and flu, constipation, depression, gynecological disorders, headache, heart problems, infertility, insomnia, pre-menstrual syndrome, sciatica, sports injuries, tendonitis, and stress.
