Acupunture for Affected Areas

Acupuncture is the procedure of inserting and manipulating needles into various points on the body to relieve pain or for therapeutic purposes.

Acupuncture has been used extensively in China for at least 2000 years to successfully treat a wide range of evolving diseases. Many hospitals worldwide, including western hospitals have now  begun to offer acupuncture treatment for purposes of pain control.

Acupuncture works internally to stimulate the functions of different organs to rebalance Qi & Blood, Yin & Yang in the body, thereby leading to a healthy state for the body to effectively heal itself. Acupuncture works directly with the body’s energy or qi, as traditional chinese medicine practitioners believe that some illnesses are a result of the natural flow of energy through the body becoming obstructed, depleted or weakened and thus making the individual susceptible to illness. Acupuncture benefits the rebalance of qi through treatment of specific acupoints related to symptoms or illness present. Acupuncture is effective in removing these energy obstructions.

Through clinical trials, acupuncture has been proven effective in treating various medical conditions and its use has been expanded into conventional medicine practices. Acupuncture is best known for control of pain including pain arising from bone, muslce and nerve conditions.

With certain health conditions, acupuncture can be effective enough to reduce or eliminate the need to take drugs to control pain or symptoms. Additional benefits of acupuncture are faster recovery from injuries, decreased symptoms of stress and improved circulation.
