About Acupuncture Treatment
Acupuncture treatment is based on the belief that there is a vital energy called “qi” that travels through the body, along certain lines called “meridians.” When there is an imbalance in your body’s energy system disease can occur. Acupuncturists insert needles into specific points along these meridian lines to restore balance to the flow of qi. This encourages the energy in the body to flow freely, allowing good health to pervade. If the energy becomes blocked, or weakened, it can result in physical, mental or emotional disease.
Acupuncture Treatment for Medical Purposes
Acupuncture medial treatments range from the prevention and treatment of disease, to relieving pain and restoring energy. Acupuncture stimulates the immune system, improves circulation and blood pressure, balances secretion of gastric acid, and maintains a healthy production of red and white cells. It also stimulates the release of a variety of hormones that help the body to respond to injury and stress. Acupuncture works to optimize performance of all body systems, often eliminating the need for more aggressive Western therapies.
