Acupuncture is an ancient health science which is used to successfully treat both pain and dysfunction in the body. Authorities agree the science is between 5,000 and 7,000 years old. This drug-free treatment uses thin needles on specific points to stimulate balance and natural healing.
How does Acupuncture work?
The Asians have reported over thousands of years and now modern science is verifying the fact, not only does the human body have an electro magnetic energy system, it courses over defined channels referred to as “meridians”. In normal health this energy field flows unimpeded and is in a balanced state. If a disruption occurs, the altered energy flow can produce conditions and symptoms affecting certain organs or parts of and in many cases, the entire body.
Acupuncture’s goal is to restore normalcy to the body’s energy field by stimulating a combination of specific acupoints through a number of different applications, the needle is just one of them.
