Acupuncture’s goal is to restore normalcy to the body’s energy to bring relief to many ailments.
What is Acupuncture?
At first glimpse, acupuncture appears strange, as its primary notoriety is the utilization of needles placed in the skin at various locations to relieve pain or affect a body part. Early Chinese physicians discovered there is an energy network traversing just below the surface of the skin which communicates from the exterior to the internal organs and structures over 1,000 “Acupoints” on the body. This energy works in harmony with the body’s circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary and all other systems of the body. When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, an effect in a body system or anatomic location becomes evident. Stimulation of one or a combination of key “Acupoints” on the body may restore harmony to the affected area.
Historians have stated, “More people have benefited from acupuncture over the course of 50 centuries than the combined total of all other healing sciences, both ancient and modern.” Acupuncture’s goal is to restore normalcy to the body’s energy balance by utilizing a combination of Acupoints located on the 12 meridians. This is accomplished by a variety of means, the needle is just one.
