Acupuncture

Chinese Medicine, as a holistic medicine, works with balancing the physiological process of the human body. When the digestive, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, musculoskeletal, and reproductive systems are functioning harmoniously, health is achieved. If the physiological functions of the body systems are imbalanced or influenced by the negative factors (stress, poor diet and lifestyle, environmental factors, injury), disease results. Acupuncture works to harmonize the physiological functions of the organs and body systems. Qi (pronounced “chee”) is a concept of Oriental philosophy that can be difficult to explain. In the simplest description, Qi can be likened to the energy of the human body, when flowing freely, one experiences optimum health and well-being. Through inserting very fine needles into the skin, acupuncture can release these energy blockages, thus restoring the body’s natural balance. Acupuncture taps into the body’s own innate ability to heal itself. Form a physiological standpoint, acupuncture can help restore homeostasis. Scientific studies have shown that acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain-killers, thus explaining the acupuncture’s effect of reducing pain. Acupuncture can also modulate the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain, thus influencing mood and easing such emotional ailments as depression and anxiety.
