Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve function. This is done by stimulating very precise acupuncture points on channels in the body called meridians. These meridians are like energy rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up into others. By stimulating acupuncture points, the obstruction is released and the body is able to reestablish regular flow. The improved energy and biomechanical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
Acupuncture can be used for:
- Promotion of health and well-being
- Prevention of illness
- Acute and Chronic pain relief
- Digestive disorders
- Respiratory disorders
- Neurological and muscular disorders
- Urinary, menstrual, and reproductive problems
- Tension, stress, and emotional conditions
