Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine:

Acupuncture and Oriental medicine have been practiced as healing arts for over 2,500 years. The general theory is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow, called Qi, throughout the body which are related to the organs and tendino-muscular system. When the energy flow is disrupted due to trauma, poor diet, medications, stress or other conditions, pain or illness result.

Acupuncture focuses on correcting these imbalances of energy flow by inserting ultra-thin needles under the skin to stimulate specific points in the body. Stimulation unblocks the channels and encourages an even flow of Qi, restoring the body’s balance and relieving pain and other symptoms.

Acupuncture and Oriental medicine are one of the newest primary health care professions in the United States. It’s benefits have become widely recognized and integrated with mainstream health care.

Acupuncture’s complex systems of diagnostic methods take into consideration the person as a whole, not just isolated symptoms. Acupuncture practice is based upon discerning the body’s pattern of disharmony and treating accordingly. This treats and strengthens the physical condition, normalizes physiological functions, and controls pain.

The aim is not just to eliminate or alleviate symptoms, but rather to treat the underlying causes, increase the ability to function, and improve the quality of life.
