What is Acupuncture?

     Acupuncture can help you become and remain well. This ancient healing art originated in China over 5000 years ago and is the oldest continuously practiced health system in the world.  

    Acupuncture works by redistributing the body’s own energy or Qi among the energy pathways and the organs they pass through. Acupuncture tradition tells us that illness results when there is a blockage in a pathway and Qi cannot flow freely. The acupuncturist is trained to recognize hundreds of precise points at which blockages can occur. By influencing the Qi at these points, the practitioner encourages the body to restore equilibrium.

    An acupuncturist may use several techniques when treating you. When most people think of acupuncture they think only of needles. It is common for an acupuncturist to also utilize acupressure techniques, suggest lifestyle modifications, and sometimes apply moxibustion, a technique which applies heat to an acupoint using a Chinese herb called mugwort. The acupuncture practitioner will ascertain which modalities and acupoints are appropriate for your treatment.


 Needles?

   Acupuncture needles are extremely thin, not thicker than two human hairs. The needles have no resemblance to a hypodermic syringe. The needles are individually packaged, sterilized, and disposed of after each use. Sensations vary from person to person. Most people report less discomfort than they expected.
