What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient medicine that has been practiced for more than 2,500 years. Originating in China, it has been and still is an integral part of their medical system, which has slowly made its way into the West. Acupuncturists use thin, solid, and flexible stainless steel needles to help relieve pain and enhance the body's ability to heal itself.
Traditional Chinese Medicine sees the body as having life force, Qi, that flows along 7 main pathways called meridians. These meridians lie between the skin, fascia, muscle, bone, and internal organs and can cause disease and illness if the flow of Qi between these places stagnates.
Traditional Chinese medicine theory describes the "Acupuncture points" that when stimulated, create microcirculation and physiological action. Stimulating these acupuncture points, can then release blockages and return the body back to homeostasis. More readily studied is Acupuncture's ability to reduce pain, which works by placing multiple needles in one area to encourage blood flow and circulation.
What to expect during a treatment:
Acupuncture treatments involve stimulating specific lines, acupuncture points or neural zones on or under the skin’s surface. Acupuncture, is a practice based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, is carried out by an Acupuncturist who inserts thin, solid and flexible stainless steel needles into the body to help relieve a variety of symptoms and to provide pain relief.
After the needles are placed you will be able to relax for a period of time with soothing music or massage. Some treatments may include a blend of gua sha massage and acupuncture. Our therapist will discuss the right mix for you and how often you may need treatment for your condition.
