Acupuncture: Maximizing Health and Relieving Pain
With over 750 million people treated and over 5000 years practiced, acupuncture has proven therapeutic health benefits.
When choosing this therapy (needle insertion acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, and auriculotherapy), you are opting for a gentle healing method without harmful side effects. Chinese Medicine is based on a holistic understanding of bodily functions, which depend on the flow of energy, called Qi. In the healthy state, the Qi is flowing harmoniously. When the harmony is out of balance, disease and malfunctions of the organs may occur. When an acupuncture needle is inserted at specifically designated points corresponding to specific organs and body functions, it has a harmonizing influence on the flow of the Qi.
During treatment, specific acupoints are stimulated, and you may feel a slight energizing sensation. Afterward, you may feel changes in your system as the Qi begins to address imbalances. This feeling is very subtle in the beginning and tends to increase with the number of sessions.
