As a part of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture has aided in restoring health to people for thousands of years. It is an ancient science that normalizes the energy, or qi (pronounced chee), within the body. An alternative therapy, acupuncture works by stimulating points in the body, either with needles or with needle-free methods, in order to balance one’s energy flow.
The central nervous system, stimulated by needling, releases biochemicals to normalize immune reactions and endocrine activities and inhibits pain patterns and dysfunction to essentially “reset” our neurology and restore normal function. All this leads to restoration of self-healing and results in analgesia without side-effects.
