Acupuncture stimulates vital energy called Qi (pronounced chee) that circulates throughout the body in meridians or pathways. Balanced and free-flowing Qi creates health, whereas blocked or stagnated Qi causes illness and disease. Acupuncture treatments calm the nervous system, stimulate the relaxation response, decrease pain and improves circulation. Needles that are hair-thin, sterile and disposable are inserted into specific points along channels to stimulate movement through the body. The treatments either build energy where depleted or clear blocked energy, thus allowing Qi to flow smoothly & freely. As a result, the body's natural ability to heal and regulate its systems to optimal functioning occurs.
Acupuncture treatments can support and cultivate body awareness, empowering the patient to pay attention to the body’s wisdom. The benefits of receiving acupuncture go beyond treating particular conditions or disease. There are no adverse side-effects of receiving acupuncture. Hundreds of clinical studies on the benefits of acupuncture show that it successfully treats conditions ranging from musculoskeletal problems (back pain, neck pain, and others) to nausea, migraine headaches, anxiety, depression, insomnia and infertility. Acupuncture can also address symptoms that don’t necessarily fall into a category. Some symptoms are vague and may be difficult to diagnose with Western medicine. You don’t have to have a diagnosis to listen to your body’s signals and address your unique expression of symptoms.
