using an ancient alternative therapy to regulate a vital flow of energy to restore harmony and balance in your body
Acupuncture is an ancient and fascinating alternative therapy that works by regulating a flow of energy in the body called qi, or chi, which is a central tenet to Traditional Chinese Medicine. A disruption in the flow of qi is thought to be responsible for disease and distress in the body. Acupuncture stimulates points on or under the skin that releases qi and allows it to travel through meridians to reestablish balance.
The study of qi is complex and can be difficult to comprehend without years of practice and study, however some say that qi and its meridians and acupressure points resemble the central nervous system and its hormones and neurotransmitters. If this is the case the needles used during an acupuncture session will stimulate these systems.
Although acupuncture is difficult to translate into Western language modern-day research has been linking this practice to serious health benefits. It can relieve symptoms from a variety of conditions and can be used to treat issues that range from congestion and headaches to chronic pain and infertility. There is increasing evidence that patients who are treated with regular care and acupuncture heal better than those treated with regular care alone.
