What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that is used to alleviate pain and/or to treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions by using small needles to stimulate points on the human body. Originating in ancient China, acupuncture is now widely practiced in the West.
Acupuncture is over 5000 years old and is a time tested healing modality originating from the far East. Each individual will experience acupuncture on a personal level and what one feels depends on their own state of being and level of sensitivity. It’s common to feel a sensation of warmth, tingling or traveling Qi (energy) when the needles are inserted; and many experience a profound sense of relaxation and well being or possibly increased energy. Acupuncture treats the whole being which includes body, mind, emotions and spirit.
Acupuncture points are located in the small depressions or hollows in the skin called gates. Thru these gates, one can access the internal streams and rivers of energy that transport Qi and blood. Qi and blood give sustenance to the interaction and cohesion of mind, body and spirit. Fundamentally, illness manifests when Qi, Blood and Fluids are either blocked, depleted or imbalanced, which diminishes its healthy coherence to the point of dysfunction or eventually illness. Acupuncture can reorganize this dynamic by opening, closing or harmonizing the flows within the rivers and streams (channels).
Some examples would be, helping individuals to manifest their potential in the real world; helping someone that is experiencing an emotional situation (good or bad), to feel or express it and one more example would be helping someone that is constantly discharging energy to store energy in order to have a sense of cohesion. Our inner world of feelings and emotions are constantly challenged in an increasingly complicated world which prevents our neurological system from processing the incoming data that seems to be coming at us at an increasingly faster pace.
All hygienic precautions are observed and only sterilized disposable needles are used.
