Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Get to the Root of the Problem
Acupuncture is a form of healing using the body’s own resources. In essence, it helps to rebalance the body’s resources by moving energy from areas with too much and moving it to where there is too little. Your practitioner will focus on your major areas of concern and will ask probing questions to specifically diagnose the problem. Once it is clear exactly what the problem is then acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be used to rebalance the body’s energy at exactly that area, which in turn will create different results and alleviate your symptoms.
During the insertion of the needles we use methods to reduce the body’s awareness of the insertion so most patients barely recognize the needles insertion, or have no sensations at all. In addition, since we use such hair-thin needles and we are not cutting the skin, patients are able to enter a deeply relaxed state where healing can take place.
Lastly, our practitioners are all licensed and board-certified. We pride ourselves on being aware of the latest research and knowledge regarding our craft. We would be happy to share with you some of the exciting research being done by western labs that support what Traditional Chinese Medical practitioners have know for a millennia.
