One of the significant benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine is that it is a safe, effective, drug-free, holistic healing system that works with the body’s own innate power to heal itself. With a history over 2500 years old, Oriental medicine is time tested and has treated more people than all other medical systems in written history. Acupuncture is a complete medical system within it that is used to diagnose and treat illness, manage chronic disorders, alleviate pain and promote health through prevention and maintenance.

More About Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a proven safe and effective natural therapy that is used to heal illness, prevent disease and improve well-being. Thin, tiny needles are inserted into specific points on the body to trigger the body’s natural healing response and to harmonize the balance of energy flow.

Over 2000 years ago Chinese healers began mapping out the body’s energy pathways or channels which are called meridians. According to traditional acupuncture theory there are 12 meridians running vertically along the length of the human body with each one connecting to specific organs and glands. The vital energy running through meridians is called “Qi” (Chee) and it activates organs and tissue functions.

Illness can be caused by obstructed Qi or energy flow at certain points along the meridians. When this happens, acupuncture therapy can be used to stimulate the Qi flow along the meridian and harmonize the body’s energy to influence the health of both body and mind.

Modern, electromagnetic research has confirmed the locations of acupuncture points, providing scientific explanations that acupuncture needles stimulate the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord and brain. These natural chemicals can change pain sensations and activate other chemical and hormonal releases that help regulate healthy body functions.

The immediate effect of acupuncture is the increased production of endorphins which are the body's natural pain relievers that have an analgesic, anti-depressant, and anti-allergic effect.

Endorphins Are Referred to as “Internal Morphine” Which Has Two Major Effects:

  1. Relaxing the body
  2. Serving to reduce the level of pain

Endorphin production also increases the circulation of blood, which sends nutrition via the small blood vessels to all parts of the body.
