Acupuncture has been practiced for over 1,000 years and is one aspect of Chinese Medicine. By inserting very fine, no larger than a strand of hair, sterilized, single use needles into specific regions of the body –improving the flow of oxygen (Qi) and nutrients (Ying Qi) through the blood vessel system (Xue Mai) to nourish every cell of our body.
Chinese Medicine has always been a physical medicine, based on real anatomy, not an energy based medicine. Everything that our body needs in order to function it receives from our blood. Every organ and every cell of our body is supported through blood flow. All the nutrients we receive from our food, the hormones we produce, the body’s natural anti-inflammatories & analgesics (pain killers), and most importantly oxygen are all found in our blood system. This is why we are so concerned with the health of your blood vessels.
Acupuncture helps to regulate the body’s overall health- bringing what is out of balance into balance, nourish what may be deficient and clear what may be stuck which then may be resulting in pain or illness, as well as enhance the body’s overall ability to heal itself.
