How Acupuncture Works
When vital energy or blood doesn’t flow smoothly in the body, it causes pain or other problems.
For centuries, Chinese physicians have used very tiny needles to treat people health issues. Now we know more than 300 points on the skin that correspond to different organ systems in the body. An acupuncturist diagnosis the problem base on symptoms. After diagnosing, the acupuncturist will place tiny sterile needles on specific “acu” points to treat the patient. Sometimes needles are not enough so the acupuncturist uses herbal formulas also. Acute cases treatment takes less time than complicated and chronic cases.
Acupuncture is a form of treatment utilizing tiny needles inserted into the various acupoints and channels on the body.
Cupping is a form of treatment that places cups mainly on the back to promote the movement of Qi and invigorate the blood.
Herbal medicine is a combination of oriental herbs, seeds, and roots made into a tonic based on the ailment and illness.
