Acupuncture is a modality of Chinese Medicine in which small needles are inserted into specific points in the body. Each of these points lies along a particular pathway, or meridian, that corresponds to a specific organ system or network. By stimulating certain points along these meridians, acupuncture unblocks stagnant Qi (the body’s essential life force), thus restoring balance to the body. Nourishing Qi and clearing stagnant energies through this way taps into the body’s innate ability to heal and harmonize itself.
Acupuncture therapy has been shown to have many positive benefits, including strengthening the immune system, aiding in blood circulation, and positively affecting the levels of endorphins and important neurotransmitters in the brain.
As a central part of the whole body-mind approach of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and according to the World Health Organization, acupuncture is beneficial for treating a variety of conditions in neurological, musculoskeletal, respiratory, gynecological, fertility, mental/emotional, digestive, vision, and hearing disharmonies as well as pain management.
Acupuncture treatments are often used in combination with other modalities such as Acupressure.
Acupressure is an ancient healing art which works by stimulating points on the acupuncture meridian system, using deep, firm pressure applied by hand, elbow or other devices.
It stimulates the body’s natural self-curative abilities to decrease muscular tension, manage pain, increase circulation, reduce stress-related ailments and correct structural and functional imbalances.
Acupressure points have also been employed to increase arousal and decrease sexual tension in both men and women.
Acupuncture-Aesthetics is the specialized discipline within the realm of Traditional Chinese Medicine that uses specific and precise methods of treatment to enhance health and beauty.
