Traditional Chinese Medicine
Chinese Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing arts. Over the years, acupuncture has been used to treat billions of people in a safe, painless and effective way, with focus upon regaining health and addressing a variety of conditions.
The Eastern philosophy behind acupuncture is that health
depends on the vital flow of a life-force energy called Qi that
circulates throughout our body along pathways called
meridians. Along these meridians are several hundred
therapeutic acupuncture points.
It is believed that illness and pain indicate a disruption in the normal flow of Qi. Inserting needles into acupuncture points serves to unblock the flow of Qi, prompts the release of endorphins (a natural painkiller), and some other chemicals to relieve pain, promote healing, and improve well being.
Some points tend to move energy towards the surface of the body while others bring the energy towards the interior of the body. Trauma, the environment, stress or medications are some of the factors that can cause an imbalance in the natural flow of energy. Acupuncture focuses on correcting this imbalance.
