What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is just one form of therapy used within the coherent system of healing known as Oriental Medicine. Acupuncture evolved from principles and philosophies unique to Oriental thinking and Oriental Medicine and is most effectively applied when done by those principles.

Acupuncture is used to promote overall health and ease pain and suffering. The concepts of “vital energy”, “energy balance”, and “energetic imbalance” are used to carry out these goals. Acupuncturists assess the flow and distribution of this “vital energy” within its pathways, known as “meridians and channels”. This is what Western medical doctors do when they monitor blood flow in the blood vessels and passages along the nervous system.

By stimulation of certain areas or “acupoints” along these meridians, the acupuncturist can influence health and sickness. Stimulation can be accomplished by the traditional slender needles most people associate with acupuncture, but it can also occur with herbs, electricity, magnets, and lasers. The goal is to adjust the “vital energy” so the proper amount reaches the proper place at the proper time. This helps your body to heal itself.

Just one of the many testimonials,  from JL of Brandon, Florida writes about her lower back pain: “Immediate and almost total pain relief after 1st visit…I came in a wheelchair and left pushing the wheelchair myself!”
