|Acupuncture is an essential part of Chinese medicine that also includes medicinal herbs, moxa, cupping, tui-na massage, diet and exercise. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical system that has been used to effectively diagnose and treat illness for about 5000 years. The goal of acupuncture is to identify areas of excess stagnation/ obstruction and areas of weakness and redistribute the Qi, or vital energy. The purpose of Qi is to nourish, regulate and protect the body from disease.
The cause of disease was therefore understood to be due to a blockage in the circulation of Qi. The blocked Qi creates an imbalance in the body which prevents it from nourishing, regulating and protecting its internal environment. Through the insertion of fine, hair-thin needles into points along energetic pathways, called channels or meridians, the subtle energies of the body can be rebalanced and restored.
What causes such imbalances?
• physical and emotional trauma
• lack of exercise
• seasonal changes
• poor diet
• congenital conditionsTiny needles are inserted at various points along the vessels depending on the health problem. The needles may then be twirled or moved in a back-and-forth motion. Sometimes electrical stimulation is used.
