Acupuncture has been used for centuries to support the body’s natural immunity.

  • What is it?
  • Acupuncture literally means “needle piercing.” Using very fine needles placed on specific points on the body, acupuncturists or the practitioners of this science, attempt to balance the body’s energy and heal a wide range of illnesses. The practitioners assess the patient’s flow of energy by evaluating the pulses of the body, the color of the skin, the condition of the tongue and other body conditions. Through the acupuncture procedure or the placement of the needles, they are able to release the vital energies of the body and assist them to flow freely and smoothly along their natural pathways which are called meridians and channels.

  • Where did it come from?
  • Acupuncture originated in china; the date of its discovery is unknown. Archeologists believe that Chinese were already practicing acupuncture during the stone age. Unearthed Bian shi or sharpened stones in Duolun county, inner Mongolia, china, gave archeologists an idea that Chinese were using Bian shi as their needles in conducting acupuncture during that time.

  • Its effectiveness…
  • Medical doctors, clinicians and other health professionals are unable to explain entirely the reasons why acupuncture is so effective. Nonetheless, there are millions of testimonials from a wide range of people as to the effectiveness of acupuncture. The number of people practicing this ancient Chinese alternative medicine is increasing year by year. Even medical doctors are studying to become licensed acupuncture practitioners. Numerous forms of acupuncture exist. They are all manifestations of the growing acceptance of acupuncture and its positive effects to the body.

    People who don’t want to undergo long medical treatment or who believe that chemical or allopathic medicine may damage the body choose acupuncture as an alternative. Some people take medically prescribed medicine and undergo acupuncture sessions at the same time. Medical doctors and practitioners are becoming more and more open to the beneficial effects that acupuncture can bring to the body.

    Its’ benefits:

  • Elimination of pain
  • Acupuncture is very effective in lessening pain. By balancing the vital energies of the body which, in turn, helps the blood to circulate properly even to the smallest veins, acupuncture is able to increase the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the body, thus diminishing pain. Using the same principle it is also very effective for headaches, insomnia, stress, and muscular aches.

    When you are undergoing sessions in acupuncture, the acupuncturist will advice you to live a healthy lifestyle. What does this mean? It means that you must stop smoking if you are a smoker, eat a balanced diet, do some exercise and get a good nights rest. Acupuncture is one of the traditional Chinese medicines. Acupuncture is based on the theory that, if you are having colds, coughs or any other simple illnesses, it is not because of your environment and germs outside of you, but because your body is weak. Acupuncture will make your body strong enough to fight the viruses and bacteria from the inside out. It will cure you from within and will strengthen your immune system, so that diseases from the environment will not have any effect on you.
