About Acupuncture:

About AcupunctureAcupuncture has been studied by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) for years now, and both testify to the safety and effectiveness of the treatment for a variety of conditions.

Acupuncture is a core part of Chinese Medicine. It involves the insertion of sterile, disposable, single-use, stainless steel needles. The needles are often barely felt, which makes acupuncture a rather pain-free process. Acupuncture works by enhancing our body’s ability to function properly.

As human beings, we develop internal blockages over time. Acupuncture helps to get rid of those blockages in the body. Similar to water flowing through a stream, the pathway of the stream must remain clear for the water to flow properly down the mountain. In order for our bodies to work properly, they must remain clear of the internal blockages, which often result from improper diet, overwork, accidents, too little rest, stress, and so on.

Acupuncture works with your body to help restore its normal function. When normal function is restored, it often leaves us feeling great: energized, in brighter spirits, better rested, and healthier altogether.

Complementary, Not instead of Western Care:

Acupuncture is excellent for helping maintain the body’s normal healthy state of functioning. It is especially great when used as a preventative measure, when the body is not already diseased. However, it works best with Western medicine, not instead of Western Medicine.

Acupuncture is a great complement to Western Care. An individual should continue to see their Western medicine physician regularly. It is important to note that the two forms of medicine work very well side by side. Keep your acupuncturist and Western physician up to date on the care that the other is doing.
