What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used medical procedures in the world. Artifacts and documented evidence go back over 4000 years. Acupuncture is used for the treatment of disorders by inserting acupuncture needles that are very thin, solid and hair-like into the skin at points (acupoints) where the flow of Qi (energy) is thought to be blocked along lines or meridians on the body. Each meridian is related to a specific organ or system in the body. If the Qi in the meridian is blocked it can create disharmony in the organ system leading to symptoms and/or pain. These points affect both the central and peripheral nervous systems. Acupuncture also triggers endorphins and enkephalins which reduce pain. It increases energy and blood flow to affected areas and enhances the overall balance of the entire human body. When the body is imbalanced, dis-ease and disharmony occur. Acupuncture treats body, mind and Spirit by stimulating the flow of blood and Qi. Acupuncture treatment is also used as a preventative medicine to keep the body, mind and Spirit in balance. A balanced immune system promotes longevity and more life in your years.
