What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a healing modality that dates back over 2,000 years. It is based upon the idea that we have a system of pathways of energy that moves through the body. These energy pathways are connected to our physical body. When this flow of energy is running smoothly, we have health and wellness. At times, we develop blockages and imbalances in this energy system from any number of physical and/or emotional factors. When these blockages or imbalances occur, we present with symptoms. Once the acupuncturist determines where these blockages are, hair-thin sterile disposable needles are inserted at various points along the meridian system and/or specific muscles to help remove the blockages and reestablish the free flow of energy. The needles are then typically left in the body for at least 30-45 minutes. Acupuncture also has a unique approach to healing in that treatments are tailored to the individual and their level of imbalance, so that healing can occur at all levels of the body, mind and spirit.
