Accupuncture is the insertion of sterile, fine, painless needles that are placed in specific acupoints to unblock the meridians and create balance in the body, therefore resolving disease.
Acupuncture is a holistic and individualistic modality, looking to understand your body and its patterns. Acupuncture looks to balance the body and bring about homeostasis. This is done by the use of acupuncture needles placed in acupuncture points. Acupoints are found all over the body usually at the junctions of muscles, tendons and bones. They are usually sensitive on pressure, especially when the points reflect illness or dis-ease.
Acupuncture is an energetic medicine, that looks at vibration, energy and resonance within the body. It encompasses the external environment and how this influences the body as well as the strong effect of emotions on the physical being.
Acupuncture now is gaining a positive reputation in the scientific community, with modern research now beginning to understand the effect of acupuncture on the body and its influence on the connective tissue, muscle-skeletal system, organ system as well as the nervous system.
