What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an alternative medicine in the America. Acupuncture is a component of traditional Chinese medicine that originated in China over 5,000 years ago. It is based on the belief that living beings have a vital energy, called “qi”, that circulates through twenty invisible energy lines known as meridians on the body. Each meridian is associated with a different organ system. An imbalance in the flow of qi throughout a meridian and organ is how disease begins.

Acupuncturists insert very fine needles into specified points along meridian lines to influence and restore balance to the flow of qi. When the needle is first inserted, you may feel a “prick” and tingling or numbing sensation in that particular area, or sometimes it can be deflected to another part of your body. We call this “energy transfer”. Acupuncture can also be relaxing. In fact, clients often fall asleep during treatment due to the relaxing effect.

There are numerous modern theories about how acupuncture works.

Acupuncture is mainly used mainly to relieve discomfort associated with a variety of conditions and diseases. Make an appointment today for a consultation.
