A complementary medical practice that entails stimulating certain points on the body, most often with a needle penetrating the skin, to alleviate pain or to help treat various health conditions.
Acupuncture, or zhenjiu, as it is called in Chinese, is an ancient form of needle therapy which is gaining more and more popularity in the Western world for the treatment of acute and chronic pain.
During a treatment, very thin, solid, hairlike needles are inserted at specific points on the body. In Chinese these points are called “neural nodes” (jie) and the stimulation of these nodes affects both the central and peripheral nervous systems. It triggers the release of the body’s internal chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins, which have pain-relieving properties. If you have pain that is lingering or is not being treated by other modalities, then acupuncture offers a time-tested, very reliable method of pain relief.
Considered to be the most accurate way to detect patterns of ill health by reading subtle signs of distress within the body.
Chinese medicine uses herbs designed to tonify the human body and increase vitality.
