Why Acupuncture?
      Acupuncture therapy is the insertion of very fine, sterile and disposable stainless steel needles into specific points over the body to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal. Modern research concludes that simulating acupuncture points decreases inflammation, increases endorphins and the circulatory, endocrine and immune systems. After years of study, Western Medicine has acquired a significantly improved understanding of the role of acupuncture to activate natural painkilling and healing mechanisms. In Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, the body has 14 main channels, called meridians, flowing throughout the body to distribute Chi, a type of unseen energy or electro-magnetic force. Chi travels in a system of meridians to connect acupuncture points in tissues and organs. When Chi is affected, the Yin and Yang in the body becomes unbalanced. The result is pain, discomfort, disorder and/or disease. Acupuncture therapy can regulate the flow of Chi in the meridians, restore the Yin/Yang balance and thereby regulate circulation, musculature, immunity, hormones and nervous signals to produce recovery.
