Understanding Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years in China as a method for restoring a healthy balance. Today,  Acupuncture is practiced everywhere in the world. In recent years, it has become a popular treatment for nausea associated with surgery or chemotherapy.

A very fine needle is applied to the skin at specific points on the body. These needles give Acupuncture it’s name. The filiform needles are solid, as opposed to hollow hypodermic needles. Most people only feel a slight tingle from the needle. The needles are placed in specific locations to correct imbalances of “qi” or the life energy flow.

Most patients feel relaxed and refreshed after an acupuncture treatment. Many patients experiencing pain before the acupuncture session find their discomfort greatly reduced after the treatment. Relief from acute pain is one of the most common reasons patients seek this age-old treatment. Acupuncture can help with various other conditions such as: allergies, tension headaches, pregnancy related issues, depression and chronic fatigue syndrome.
