Acupuncture is one component of a system of healthcare, Traditional Chinese Medicine. TCM is based on the belief that human beings are connected to nature and that we are composed of the essential elements found in nature. Health is determined by a balanced relationship between a person’s internal body, mind and spirit and their external environment. When this balance is disrupted, disease results.
Acupuncture is used to stimulate movement in the body through the insertion of thin needles. There are over 500 acupuncture points on the body surface. By stimulating these points, a reaction is created and the body begins to heal itself. This process works because we are also sending messages to the brain to release the body’s natural healing abilities and substances. The normal flow of these substances can be inhibited due to stress, poor diet, injury, lack of sleep. Modern science has shown that acupuncture works in the body through the endocrine (hormones) and nervous systems.
The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture as an effective treatment option for a wide variety of conditions.
Most people report an improvement in their symptoms as well as an overall feeling of well being after seeing their acupuncturist.
