Acupuncture is a form of natural health care originating from Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been in use for over 5,000 years. It is the placement of hair thin sterile and disposable needles into specific points on the body along energy pathways. The energy pathways are called meridians and each of the 14 meridians are connected to specific organs and glands. Acupuncture works by activating the body's natural ability to heal itself. It unblocks the meridians so "Qi" or life energy can flow freely to the disease area to heal the body. Acupuncture corrects the root cause of disease as well as the symptoms. It creates specific physiological changes in the body such as increased blood flow and oxygen, stimulates tissue repair, has anti-inflammatory effects and releases endorphins and other hormones for natural pain relief and feelings of well being without side effects.
