Originating from ancient Chinese system of medicine, acupuncture is a method of treatment that is commonly used today. For the last fifty years, it has undergone research, evaluation and ultimately proven effective in treating many modern health care concerns. Acupuncture can treat a wide variety of conditions, pain and stress-related symptoms. Surprisingly, although needles are used in acupuncture, treatments are relatively pain-free. In fact, one of the most popular uses of acupuncture is to reduce chronic pain throughout the body in a natural way, without the need for medications that can cause unwanted side effects.
Currently, acupuncture is used to treat conditions like:
- muscle spasms and pain
- chronic back problems and pain
- headaches, including reducing the frequency and intensity of migraines
- neck pain
- knee pain
- digestive problems
- mood, depression / anxiety
“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed."
Acupuncture improves the body's natural ability to heal by stimulating specific points on the body. A practitioner may use pressure or more commonly fine sterile filiform needles to be inserted into the skin. Pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation may be incorporated into any given treatment to enhance the effects
Acupuncture is an extension of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has been practiced for thousands of years. It's based on a holistic medicine that looks at a client as a product of overall physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional wellbeing before recommending treatment.
It is predominately based on an ancient form of the scientific method. After centuries of observation, classical providers created the a hypothesis of Qi (say chee) . From their hypothesis, the theory of Qi is based on the continual loop of energy throughout the body in a given 24 hour cycle. Illness may be the product of too much or too little Qi. Health is restored once the body is balanced. Acupuncture is one example of unblocking or redirecting Qi in the body. Diet, sleep, physical activity, and meditation can also impact one's Qi.
To me, Chinese medicine is where science and art merge. In my practice, I like to blend the knowledge of Chinese Classics with the clarity of bold modern evidence based research.
