Traditional and Medical Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a system which can influence three areas of health care:
- Promotion of health and well-being
- Prevention of illness
- Treatments of various medical conditions
Acupuncture is particularly useful in resolving physical problems related to tension and stress and emotional conditions.
Acupuncture has been used throughout Asia for centuries to treat problems as diverse as pains, strains and sprains, sinus congestion, digestive problems, and infertility.
According to Chinese Medicine, the body is made up of pathways of energy called meridians, similar to your nervous system and circulatory network. They run up and down and front to back within your body. Acupuncture points are specific sites along these meridians. When stimulated with wire-thin, sterilized disposable needles, acupuncture has the ability to activate the body's self-healing mechanisms.
Acupuncturists agree with Western Medicine in their belief that in order to maintain health, the body must be in a state of homeostasis. Sickness and pain is an indication that your body is out of balance. The role of an acupuncturist is to re-establish balance and help your body to naturally return to its optimal state of well-being.
Widely recognized as an effective treatment to many disorders, acupuncture treats the root cause of the problem, without any of the side effects of Western drugs.
