What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one of the main natural healing methods used by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
One of the world's oldest medical systems, the use of Acupuncture in Europe and North America began to spread during the second half of the twentieth century and gained popularity due to good results. Today, it is a widely practiced, safe and effective, natural form of health care, used in Western Medicine as well as by Practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Acupuncture therapy is based on the concept of Qi, the life force or energy which flows around the body and regulates your health. According to TCM theory, disease results if the flow of Qi is blocked. Acupuncture points are located on the meridians through which Qi flows. It works by relieving blockages at key points along the meridians. By enabling Qi to flow smoothly, balance and harmony are restored to your body, giving it the support it needs to prevent health problems and treat illness and disease.
Acupuncture is the insertion of very tiny needles in certain spots (acupuncture points) on the body. The needles move energy (Qi) and this can relieve blockages, promote blood flow and energy flow, expel cold, clear heat...
These are Traditional Chinese Medicine terms which the TCM practitioner uses to formulate a diagnosis and put together a treatment plan.
The goal is to get rid of 'excesses' and to supply what is 'deficient' and to promote Qi and Blood flow. Acupuncture can help stimulate the brain to release certain hormones and promote the removal of toxins. Acupuncture helps the body and mind reach a 'balanced' state in which the body will heal faster and with longer lasting results.
