What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture treatments involve inserting a thin, solid, stainless-steel needle into tissue at specific points and then activating the point through gentle and specific movements of the acupuncturist’s hands or with electrical stimulation to facilitate the body’s self-healing mechanisms.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and/or East Asian Medicine (EAM) & Acupuncture are rooted in the concepts of balance and equilibrium of the whole person. If one desires optimal health, then one must be in a state of balance with all the body’s systems running smoothly. When we are in balance our bodies function at their fullest potential. Stress, trauma, chronic pain, and other health conditions can cause a disruption in the body’s homeostasis.

Acupuncture focuses on amelioration of pain, strengthening the physical condition, harmonizing of the Mind/Spirit/Emotions, and balancing the body’s innate energy and systems. Acupuncture treatment plans often include adjunct therapies such as Moxibustion, Cupping, Gua Sha, Tui Na/bodywork, as well as dietary therapy, movement practices, and lifestyle recommendations.

Acupuncture and Moxibustion are just one of the Eight Branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a comprehensive guide to living a life oriented towards good health. The other Branches include Meditation/Self-Awareness, Movement/Exercise, Diet Therapy, Bodywork, Herbal medicine, Cosmology, and Geomancy/Feng Shui.
