A Catalyst for Dramatic and Positive Life Changes

Acupuncture started in China over 3,000 years ago. It is popular worldwide and is recognized as a primary healthcare system in many countries. The Chinese word “qi” (pronounced “chee”) describes the body’s life force, or energy.

Meridians are the pathways through which energy, or qi, circulates. Before an acupuncture treatment, your therapist will assess what meridians and organs are involved. This diagnosis is based on your signs and symptoms as well as where you manifest physical pain.

Acupuncture Procedure

Acupuncture is carried out by inserting very fine, disposable needles into specific points on the body for approximately 15–20 minutes. Acupuncture treatments are usually painless and most patients become deeply relaxed while the treatment is in session, and many fall asleep during this time.

An individual acupuncture session lasts approximately 45-60 minutes. The length of the treatment depends on the condition being treated, as well as the individuals’ response to the treatment.

From a Western medical perspective, recent studies have shown that acupuncture releases endorphins, decreases inflammation and increases T-cell count, which boosts the immune system. A study at the University of Chicago had patients receive acupuncture while undergoing an MRI. Results show that certain areas of the brain become active when acupuncture needles are inserted at specific points. The most advanced medical technology is now confirming theories that originated more than 5,000 years ago.
