Acupuncture is a natural form of ancient Chinese Medicine by insertion of needles to skin on specific points ( called acupuncture points or acupoints) to promotes the natural self-healing process and improves the body’s functions. Besides using fine, sterile needles, other acupoint stimulation techniques include: massage, moxibustion, cupping, and the application of topical herbal medicines.
Acupuncture dates back 4000 years ago. According to traditional Chinese medical theory, all the body parts and internal organs are connected by the special pathway which is called Channel or Meridians. Qi (energy force, pronounced chee) and Blood flows through these channels. There are 14 major meridians in the human body, 12 of which are dominated by the major organs. Each of these links energy points across the whole body, which are all related. The body stays healthy when its Qi and blood are abundant and flowing smoothly. However, if the flow of energy gets blocked or weak, the disruption can lead to pain, lack of function, or illness.
Acupuncture therapy can release blocked Qi in the body and stimulate function, evoking the body’s natural healing response through various physiological systems. Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and digestive system. By stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture can help to resolve pain, and improve sleep, digestive function, and sense of well-being.
Hundreds of clinical studies on the benefits of acupuncture show that it successfully treats wide range of conditions. The National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization recognize acupuncture as an effective treatment for about four dozen common health issues.
