What is acupuncture and how does it help?
Human life and functions depend not only on the physical integrity, biochemical homeostasis, but also the abundance and balance of the body’s vital energy, known as Qi (pronounced as chi) in Chinese.
The body’s vital energy flows inside and around the energy channels that forms a comprehensive energy network known as meridians. These energy channels have openings on the surface of the body known as acupuncture points that interact with the energy of environment.
When the body’s vital energy moves in a wrong direction, gets blocked, becomes depleted, or is out of balance, dysfunctions and illnesses occur. Acupuncture is one of the major therapeutic modalities of Chinese medicine that corrects these abnormalities.
The treatment of acupuncture involves insertion of very thin, disposal, stainless steel needles into the selected acupuncture points. Through tactically manipulating the needles, skilled acupuncturist is able to touch and regulate body’s vital energy.
It takes a dozen of sessions or more to generate significant results even though one may feel the improvement after first few sessions. Each session takes about 30 to 60 minutes depending on the complex of the conditions.
For over 2,500 years, acupuncture has been used widely in Asian nations as the primary medical technique for relieving pain, healing chronic diseases, and improving general health.
