Acupuncture Treatment

Acupuncture is a therapy rooted in traditional Chinese medicine that originated more than 5,000 years ago. It is based on the belief that people have a vital energy, called “Qi,” that circulates through 12 invisible energy channels known as “meridians” on the body. These energy channels are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues.

Each meridian is associated with a different organ system. Therefore, an imbalance in the flow of Qi throughout a meridian is how disease begins. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that, when backed up, causes stages of excess and deficiency in the body.

In modern medicine, acupuncture remains an effective therapy for a wide range of medical conditions. Modern practitioners believe that the meridians identified in traditional Chinese medicine align with key nerves and muscle tissues that are associated with chronic and acute pain and related conditions.

How Does Acupuncture Treatment Work?

Acupuncture treatment involves the use of thin needles to manipulate the body’s vital energy. This restores balance and flow to the body’s natural systems.

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years for treating a number of health concerns in an effective and natural way. Each acupuncture session is specifically tailored to address the patient’s health needs and goals. Acupuncture points are specific areas like nerve endings, mast cells, capillaries, etc. just beyond the surface of the skin. When an acupuncture needle is inserted into an acupuncture point, it stimulates these sensory receptors, which then stimulate the nerves that transmit impulses to the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal system.

The complex system of interactions between the brain, hormones, and glands is responsible for regulating a number of bodily processes. Because acupuncture helps to regulate these interactions, it actually allows your body to heal itself of whatever is wrong.

The Uses of Acupuncture

Acupuncture treatments can help the body’s internal organs correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities. In addition, it can aid in the circulation of energy through the meridians.

What to Expect From Acupuncture Treatment

Prior to starting a session, our doctors assess the patient’s health by taking their pulse and looking at their tongue patterns, both of which provide information on the internal function of the body.

During the treatment, our doctors insert needles into specific points along the patient’s meridian lines to unblock obstructions and reestablish the regular flow of Qi through the body.

Along with the usual method of puncturing the skin with fine needles, other mediums such as heat, pressure, suction, cupping, or impulses of electromagnetic energy may be used to stimulate the acupuncture points.

Acupuncture is said to work on emotional and mental levels, so feeling emotional during or after a treatment is an indication that it is doing its job. From an acupuncture perspective, physical and emotional health are interconnected, so if you feel better emotionally, you can be sure that your physical symptoms are also improving.

An acupuncture session usually lasts around 60 minutes.
