About Acupuncture

Acupuncture is best known for its ability to alleviate pain, but it has been used for thousands of years for so much more. It has been discovered recently to have great powers to relieve the stresses of our modern society.

Through medical research, acupuncture has been proven to work in several ways, yet still has not been fully explained by Western science.

 

Acupuncture remains an energetic mystery that has persisted through many millennia and countless generations because, in fact, it does work at alleviating various diseases and health conditions.

How Acupuncture Works

In traditional Chinese medicine, it is postulated that the connective tissue of the body is the pathway of the meridians, and a subtle substance called Qi flows through these pathways in a healthy body.

If the Qi is blocked or becomes stagnant, pain and poor bodily functions can result. The practices of traditional Chinese medicine get that Qi moving and support its smooth flow throughout your body.

It has been shown that it increases endorphins, those "feel-good" chemicals the body produces and is associated with euphoria. Acupuncture also affects the transmission of nerve impulses in complex ways. 

You may not be able to understand exactly how Traditional Chinese Medicine works, but you will definitely know that it brings lasting relief to symptoms allowing your body to heal naturally.
