  What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture, simply stated, is a health science that is used to successfully treat both pain and dysfunction in the body.

How does it work?

This  ancient healing art has been used in China for over 5,000 years. Its use expanded throughout Europe as far back as the 1700’s. Early Chinese physicians discovered there is an energy network traversing just below the surface of the skin that communicates from the exterior to the internal organs and structure at over 1,000 “Acupoints” on the body. This energy works in harmony with the body’s circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary and all other systems of the body. When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, it can alter the entire system, producing pain or symptoms in the body. Acupuncture’s goal is to stimulate one or a combination of key “Acupoints” on the body to restore harmony to the affected area.

In addition, the body is comprised of five basic forms of energy called “elements”. These five elements are constantly being transformed from one into another throughout the natural world and determine our whole physical, psychological and emotional balance. One of the long-term goals of acupuncture is to balance the body’s elements: earth, fire, metal, wood and water. This will further balance the body’s five colors: yellow, red, white, green and blue and help harmonize the five emotions: worry, joy, panic, grief, anger and fear.

Is it painful?

There are many ways to stimulate an Acupoint - needles, electronic stimulation, cold laser beam or pressure massage, singularly or in combination. Does it hurt, you ask? Four acupuncture needles could easily fit into one hypodermic needle. Because of the extreme slenderness, most people compare the sensation as “less than a mosquito bite”. The other methods of stimulation compare to being tapped by a ballpoint pen or totally painless.

How many treatments are usual?

Obviously, the number of treatments varies with different conditions and individuals. Chronic problems generally require more treatment than acute ones. Some patients notice an immediate improvement after the first treatment, whereas, others may not notice any effect until the seventh or eighth visit. Researchers internationally agree the usual number of treatments is between eight and sixteen with the usual frequency being between two to four visits a week.

A small number of patients will experience a worsening of symptoms as the body’s energies are returning to normal. This is usual and no need for alarm. It is followed by improvement. Patients are encouraged to be patient with the healing process.
