What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a treatment method that assists the body to promote natural healing and improve functioning. This procedure is done by inserting very thin needles at precise acupuncture points. Heat and Electrical stimulation may also be applied over the needles to increase the effects of acupuncture treatments.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
Early Chinese physicicans discovered there is an energy network transversing just below the surface of the skin which communicates from the exterior to the internal organs and structures at over 1,000 “Acupoints” on the body. This energy works in harmony with the body’s circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary, and all other systems of the body. When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakend, an effect in a body system or anatomic location becomes evident. Stimulation of one of a combination of key “Acupoints” on the body may restore harmony to the affected area.
Historians have stated, ” More people have benefited from Acupuncture over the course of fifty centuries than the combined total of all other healing sciences, both ancient and modern.”
