Acupuncture - Pin-pointing the Disharmony

Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world, focusing on restoring and maintaining health through the flows of energy (Qi) we all have within. We have been witnesses to the powerful approach Acupuncture has proven itself to be, both as practitioners and patients. Often Acupuncture is prescribed in conjunction with herbal treatments consisting of from 5 to 20 herbs which, when combined, work supportively with the acupuncture treatments to bolster the effectiveness and rapidity of improvement.

What is Qi?

According to the classical doctrines of Chinese medicine, health is achieved through the harmonious balance between the opposing forces of Yin (spirit) and Yang (blood). Yin qualities are typically coldness, weakness, hollowness, and dark, while the opposite Yang qualities are heat, strength, solidity, and light. The attraction between Yin and Yang creates a vital energy known as Qi.
 
Any imbalance within those forces is believed to cause illness. For example, a person with a high fever, bright red cheeks, and intense headache would be someone with an excess of Yang, while someone with symptoms of chronic fatigue, pallor, and cold limbs would have an excess of Yin. Acupuncture aims to restore the Yin/Yang balance.
 
The meridians cannot be seen by the naked eye, but modern science has shown that their existence can be detected electrically. Most of the meridians are associated with specific internal organs or organ systems, and the Qi power enables the organs and systems to function effectively.
 
A large body of evidence is indicating that Acupuncture leads to real physiological changes in the body: from release of pain-killing substances - endorphins that are 200 times more potent than morphine, to improving circulation and regulating neurotransmitters and hormonal balance. Traditional Chinese medicine is rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism and dates back more than 5,000 years. Today, TCM is practiced side by side with Western medicine in many of China’s hospitals and clinics, widely used in the United States.
