How Acupuncture Works
Oriental Medical experts say that pain and disease are caused by an imbalance in the body. Acupuncture works to restore proper balance, returning the body to a more healthy state. In an acupuncture treatment, thin, sterile needles are inserted at very specific points on the body. These points are carefully selected by the Licensed Acupuncturist according to the patient’s problem. Each treatment is tailored to the individual’s needs.
According to the Mayo Clinic, acupuncture stimulates nerves, muscles, and connective tissue to boost the activity of your body’s own natural painkillers and increase blood flow. Emphasis is placed on understanding and treating the underlying cause of each individual’s imbalance. This holistic approach treats not only physical complaints, but also emotional, environmental, and lifestyle conditions. Throughout history, more people have used acupuncture and Oriental Medicine than all other types of medicines combined. Today it helps people throughout this country and around the world.
