What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate and balance the body’s energy flow, known as “qi” (pronounced “chee”). This technique is used to alleviate various ailments, including pain, stress, and chronic conditions. Acupuncture aims to restore health and well-being by promoting the body’s natural healing processes. There are a lot of misconceptions out there about acupuncture and we’d like to clear a few things up.

  • Acupuncture is painful – This seems to be based on a fear of needles. While that fear is real, the pain is not. The needles used are about the width of a strand of hair.
  • Acupuncture doesn’t work – Acupuncture was helping people long before western medicine. It does not involve harmful chemicals and has been proven to provide relief to many symptoms.
  • Acupuncture is expensive – Acupuncture is becoming recognized by more and more healthcare professionals and insurance companies are starting to see the benefits of including it in their plans.
  • Acupuncture is addictive – Although some patients will need a few sessions to gain the maximum benefits of acupuncture, it is not addictive. Quite oppositely, acupuncture can often help curb other addictions like smoking or alcohol.

Acupuncture has been helping people for thousands of years. People around the world have taken advantage of its benefits. With so much to gain and so little to lose, isn’t it time you tried acupuncture? From minor aches and pains to more chronic diseases and even addiction, acupuncture has helped millions escape from pain and start enjoying all that life has to offer again. If you feel like you might benefit from acupuncture, please contact us today for more information.
