What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of therapy that promotes natural healing of the body. Acupuncture forms a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which originated in China over 5000 years ago. Acupuncture is a safe and effective natural therapy and an increasingly popular form of healthcare that is used by a wide range of cultural and social backgrounds.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
Generally acupuncture works by increasing the body's natural healing response through the stimulation of acupressure points throughout the body. This stimulation provides benefits that have been shown to support the musculoskeletal, circulatory, nervous, endocrine and digestive systems. There are two articles on the Visit Us page that give great in depth explanations of the most recent studies on how acupuncture works.
What Does Acupuncture Do?
• Stimulates and regulates your body's circulatory system
• Reduces pain, inflammation and enhances the body's natural ability to heal itself
• Supports the strength and functioning of your nervous system
• Restores hormonal balance and strengthens the digestive system
• Reduces the stress response in your body
• Treats the system not just the symptoms!
What is Qi?
Qi (pronounced chee) is the life force or energy that animates the forms of the world. It is a vibrational ocean continuously flowing all around us at molecular, atomic and sub-atomic levels. Qi circulates in our bodies through meridians that act like rivers irrigating the land. If the flow of qi in the meridians becomes blocked or there is an inadequate supply of qi, then the body fails to maintain harmony, balance and order, and disease or illness follows. This can result from stress, overwork, poor diet, disease pathogens, weather and environmental conditions, and other lifestyle factors.
