Acupuncture restores balance to body, mind, and spirit by activating your internal healing mechanisms. Whether you come to acupuncture to support your health and improve overall wellness, or to treat acute and / or chronic illnesses or injuries, it is safe, gentle, and effective.
Simply put, acupuncture is the insertion of very fine sterile needles into the body at specific points. These points, mapped for thousands of years, promote harmonious flow of Qi, or energy, throughout the body.
Adjusting and balancing the flow of Qi stimulates a series of subtle and powerful physical responses. These responses work together to:
• reduce pain
• promote faster healing
• improve immune response
• release muscle tension
• decrease inflammation
• enhance range of motion
• regulate hormones
• diminish stress
Acupuncture is one aspect of traditional Oriental, or Chinese, medicine. Chinese herbs are another major component. When the proper herbs are combined with the correct Chinese diagnosis, they assist and support the healing process. Other important aspects include dietary and lifestyle changes and stress management.
The journey to wellness is a three-way partnership between you, your body, and your practitioner. Open, honest communication between all parties is essential to a successful journey. By listening carefully to your body how it responds, what it likes and doesn’t like you and your practitioner can learn how to honor your body’s needs more fully, speeding recovery and enhancing wellness.
Common ailments for which acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine may be of benefit include allergies, migraines, back pain, and many more.
