Medical Acupuncture: helping people regain their health, naturally.
ACUPUNCTURE
Helping you regain your health...Naturally!

Medical acupuncture respects the modern understanding of neuromuscular anatomy and pain physiology. At the same time, it includes the traditional Chinese roots of a subtle circulation network of channels, or meridians, which transports the flow of body energy known as Qi. The word Qi sounds like chee.

The meridian system consists of approximately 400 points and 20 meridians. These 20 meridians connect acupuncture points together in order to improve the flow of energy and stimulate tissue regeneration. Therapeutic insertion of solid, extremely thin, one-time use disposable needles in various combinations and patterns of points follows traditional principles. Needling in this manner encourages the flow of Qi along with recruiting neuroanatomical segments or localized channels of a particular condition or injury. Needle insertion is most often painless with a slight feeling of fullness around the area the needle occupies.

Electro-acupuncture is extremely effective in certain cases as it stimulates acupuncture points as well as to increase blood circulation, relax spasmed muscle, and release painful trigger points.

Acupuncture allows for the release of certain hormones like endorphins and cortisol to help reduce the effects of inflammation and decrease pain.

A few conditions such as back pain, neck and shoulder pain, headaches of all kinds, sprains, strains, sports injuries, chronic repetitive strains such as elbow and wrist conditions, and arthritic problems respond tremendously to medical and electro-acupuncture treatment. Further information on medical acupuncture can be found at the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture web site.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends the benefits of medical acupuncture for many common conditions.
