Acupuncture 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. Broward Acupuncture by White Crane Healing Arts treats the whole being which includes body, mind, emotions and spirit.
In the realm of acupuncture, the most common energetic pathways used are the 12 meridians or regular channels. These meridians connect to the yin and yang organ systems of the body. This system is generally emphasized in Chinese medical schools, however there are other energy channels that are equally valuable, known as the 8 extraordinary vessels.
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).
