What is Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine?
Like flowing water that travels through streams and rivers, so it is that qi (energy) flows smoothly through meridian channels of the body. It is the vital life force and energy that nourishes and promotes the body’s natural healing process.
Originating over five thousand years ago in Asia, Oriental medicine encompasses Acupuncture, massage, cupping, moxabustion, nutrition, lifestyle and other related modalities that balance the body in order to restore and maintain health. This works by balancing the yin-yang energies of qi in the body.
According to traditional Chinese medical theory, pain and illness arise when the cyclical flow of qi in the meridians become blocked or unbalanced. Oriental medicine restores the proper balance of qi and blood, thus supporting the body to help correct itself. It has the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to treat a wide variety of illnesses and disorders.
When qi and blood flows freely and unobstructed through the meridian channels, the body is balanced. A balanced body is a healthy body.
What does an Acupuncture Treatment feel like?
Acupuncture is performed by inserting very thin, disposable, sterilized, stainless-steel filaments (as fine as a human hair) into specific points located near or on the surface of the skin. Most patients report a feeling of calm and often fall asleep during treatment.
After the first session, most people feel less pain, increased mobility, and very peaceful. Common side effects of ongoing treatments include increased energy, improved clarity to the skin, improved digestion and improved quality of sleep.
