What Does Acupuncture Treat?

Acupuncture promotes wellness and can assist in the healing of many disorders. The National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization recognizes the efficacy of acupuncture for the treatment of 43 common disorders, including gastrointestinal disorders such as peptic ulcers, chronic diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, gastrointestinal weakness, and gastritis; urogenital disorders including stress incontinence, urinary tract infection, and sexual dysfunction in men and women; gynecological disorders of irregular, heavy, or painful menstruation, infertility in women and men, and premenstrual syndrome; respiratory disorders such as emphysema, sinusitis, asthma, allergies, and bronchitis; disorders of the bone, muscles, joints, and nervous system like arthritis, migraine, headaches, neuralgia, fibromyalgia, insomnia, dizziness, back, neck, and shoulder pain, and chronic pain syndromes; circulatory disorders such as angina pectoris, hypertension, and anemia; emotional and psychological disorders including depression and anxiety; addictions to alcohol, nicotine, and drugs; supportive therapy that relieves the unpleasant side effects of radiation and chemotherapy.  Acupuncture is appropriate for any age.

How Does It Work?

The ancient Chinese recognized a vital force, known as Chi (pronounced "chee") which is the basis for all life. Chi flows along specific pathways in the body known as Meridians.  When Chi becomes blocked, deficient, or stagnant, we experience the signs and symptoms of pain and illness.  The acupuncturist learns precise points at which blockages may be relieved. The proper placement of needles enhances the flow of Chi which restores the body and mind to a more harmonious state. Each point has a designated effect on the energy passing through it. This system of medicine came from carefully recorded observations, passed from master to student, over thousands of years. Today, science has been able to measure the electrical charge at these points, thus offering a modern glimpse into an ancient medicinal art.

What About the Needles?

Acupuncture needles are just a little thicker than a human hair. They are solid, not hollow like hypodermic needles and are made of the highest quality surgical steel. Needles are pre-sterilized, individually packed, and disposable. They are used once, and then discarded. With proper technique, the needles cause little or no discomfort and are painless after placement. A feeling of tingling or heaviness may be felt as the needle contacts the Chi. People generally enjoy their acupuncture sessions and report feeling deeply relaxed during and after treatment.
