What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture can be traced back at least 2,500 years.

Acupuncture points can be measured electrically as areas of increased electrical conductance. When connected these points form a map of the body similar to the nervous system, blood, and lymph system.

Acupuncture is based on using this map of energy (the meridians) that flows through the body which is essential for good health.

Disruptions of this flow are considered to be responsible for disease.

The acupuncturist can correct imbalances of flow by inserting needles at specific points in the skin.

For some years we have seen both the presence and action of the meridians using radioactive isotopes, CT scans (a type of X ray) / MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) studies and blood analysis.

The Root Cause

This Chinese character means “root cause,” an important element of Chinese medicine.

Patients often become devoted to Chinese medicine because they see dramatic improvement in their symptoms.

The practitioner however is always seeking to discover what is causing the symptoms, to treat the cause, and to prevent recurrences.

While acupuncture excels at resolving acute symptoms, the goal is always to correct the root cause of disease.
