Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is an ancient lineage of healing that is both a sophisticated science and spiritual art form. It is a clinically effective and globally recognized system of healing for the serious healthcare needs of our time.
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) along the body’s meridians to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of qi through the individual.
It is safe and effective and is often successfully used as an alternative to medications or even surgery. Relief is often obtained with acupuncture when traditional medical therapy has failed.
If our vital energy is blocked or depleted, the result is pain and illness. This medicine treats the underlying imbalance, “the root”, as well as alleviation of symptoms “the branches”, by removing physical, energetic, and emotional blockages in the body, re-kindling the life force, centering the shen (spirit), and balancing the whole system.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine excel at treating acute and chronic pain.
This can include sports injuries, accidents, post-operative pain, cancer pain or discomfort from chemotherapy and radiation, and chronic pain from surgery or injury in the distant past. Treatment with acupuncture can be a primary form of pain treatment and management and can help avoid surgery and/or pharmaceutical medications.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine excel at treating acute and chronic diseases.
Though less commonly known, acupuncture can treat such things as the common cold, flu, and ear infections. Modern research and clinical reports are supporting the efficacy of natural medicine in the care of people with chronic disease. Acupuncture can alleviate common complaints like stress, sleep issues, mood, and low energy, as well as help address physical and emotional trauma.
