What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a legendary practice said to have been formulated by Emperor Huangdi of the Ancient China Empire at about 2500 B.C. with the intention of channeling the flow of energy, or Qi, of the body in order to bring about balance and great health within the minds and bodies of the Chinese people. This form of traditional medicine has stood the test of time, being utilized for several thousands of years to heal and eradicate chronic pain.
This is done by strategically placing painless acupuncture needles in certain points of the body in order to stimulate sensory nerves that are active within the skin and muscles. Fear of needles is common, but don't worry about these acupuncture needles, patients often forget they're on them since they can hardly feel them.
What are the Benefits of Acupuncture?
Acupuncture creates homeostasis or a harmony in your body's energetic system that allows you to function in a state of ease. Medically, this is due to the stimulation of the central nervous system, which releases chemicals through the mind, body, and spine. This process can result in decreased pain, better sleep, improved bowel function, hormonal regulation, or improved fertility.
