Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world. Originating in China more than 2,000 years ago, acupuncture began to become better known in the United States in 1971, when New York Times reporter James Reston wrote about how doctors in China used needles to ease his abdominal pain after surgery. Research shows that acupuncture is beneficial in treating a variety of health conditions.
How does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture functions like small tuning forks, improving the conductivity along body pathways, allowing for better communication between body systems and supplying the electromagnetic field of the body with an opportunity to re-balance any stagnation that may have developed in the tissues or organ systems.
The procedure of Acupuncture consists of a licensed and trained practitioner inserting very thin stainless steel needles (about 2 hairs width) into specific ‘acupoints’ to support systems that are out of balance or not running efficiently. This process stimulates a variety of physiological and biochemical activity; some of these effects are systemic and some are local.
