Are you looking for complementary methods of coping with chronic pain, arthritis, allergies, anxiety, stress, infertility, etc? Acupuncture may help! The list of conditions that the World Health Organization lists as responding favorably to acupuncture and Chinese medicine is almost endless.
Traditional Chinese acupuncture is one of the oldest healing arts that exist. Over the millennia, acupuncture has been used as a powerl medical tool. Acupuncture has been used to treat billions of people in a safe, painless and effective way, with the focus on regaining health and addressing countless conditions.
The Eastern philosophy behind acupuncture is that health depends on the vital flow of a life-force energy called qi (pronounsed chee). Qi circulates through our body along pathways called meridians. Along these meridians are several hundred therapeutic acupuncture points, which are similar to rest stops along a highway. It’s believed that illness and pain indicate a disruption, or traffic jam, in the normal flow of Qi. Disease can not occur when the body is balanced. Inserting hair-thin sterile needles into acupuncture points allows the meridians to unblock the flow of Qi, prompts the release of endorphins (the natural painkillers), hormones and other bodily chemicals. This awakens our naturally occuring healing abilities within our body to relieve pain, promote healing, and improve well-being.
