5 Elements of Acupuncture
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical technique for unblocking qi by inserting needles at particular points on the body to balance the opposing forces of yin and yang. Qi is believed to flow through the body along 14 main pathways, called meridians. When yin and yang are in harmony, qi flows freely within the body, and a person is healthy. When a person is sick, diseased, or injured, there is an obstruction of qi along one or more of the meridians.
How does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture works by activating a natural pain-suppression system in the brain. Acupuncture has the systemic effect of increasing endorphins which leads to pain relief, enhanced energy and vitality as well as strengthening the body's immune system so that it has the ability to fight disease.
What happens during an Acupuncture treatment?
Very fine, sterile and disposable needles are inserted into points along the energy channels in the body to stimulate and regulate the flow of energy. These points are located on energetic pathways, called meridians, leading to the organs, muscles, and nerves of the body.
