What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient practice that is still effective in modern times. Its origins trace back several thousand years to ancient China, where practitioners identified energy pathways in the body. The body’s vital energy, or qi, travels through these paths, and it can become unbalanced in life due to stress, illness and injury. Acupuncture restores balance to the qi by manipulating energy pathways, called meridians, allowing your body to heal.
Although science is still exploring what makes acupuncture so effective, it has been shown time and again to be a highly effective and safe form of holistic medicine.
What to Expect From Your Treatment
Acupuncture treatments utilize small, hair-thin needles carefully inserted into acu-points throughout the body. These needles work to gently manipulate the energy pathways within the body.
Many first-time patients are anxious about needles, but the truth is that acupuncture needles are very different from hypodermic injections. They are much, much smaller — about the size of a strand of hair – and slightly flexible. Most patients hardly notice the insertion of the needles.
What you may feel during your treatment is an “electrical” type stimulation or a heavy, achy pressure spreading or traveling through your body. Most patients find these sensations deeply satisfying and relaxing.
