Activate The Body's Energy System
What It Is:
Acupuncture is the most "famous" component of Oriental Medicine. It originated more than 5,000 years ago and is based on the concept of Qi (pronounced "chee"), usually termed energy or life force. Thin, sterile needles are then inserted to balance the organ dysfunction. There are more than 400 points on the human body!
Those suffering with conditions such as acute and chronic pain, fatigue, chronic disorders, digestive issues and PMS can all benefit from acupuncture. The diagnosis is based on the practitioner's detailed questioning, palpation, visual inspection, and olfactory-auditory data collection.
What to expect:
During your first visit, we will go over your health history and current concerns. Your first visit takes approximately 90 minutes. Based on your findings, we will recommend the best way for us to guide you towards health. Our patients get symptom-free fast and stay that way. Since we are working with your body's natural healing abilities, ultimately it will be your body telling us the frequency of sessions needed to recover.
How it works:
Acupuncture meridians can be measured by skin conductivity that transmits light and electricity. Research has shown that acupuncture meridians transmit signals about 100 times faster than nerves. It is thought that the connective tissue, which has a crystalline structure, responds to the insertion of a needle by creating a piezo-electric effect.
Hence, the insertion of a needle at the foot or hand can sometimes create a sensation in the trunk or head, according to the meridian pathway.
