Acupuncture is a specialized treatment modality offered at our clinic. It is a component of traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that can be traced back at least 2,500 years, if not more. The general theory of acupuncture is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi) throughout the body that are essential for health. Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease.
Analgesic: the most commonly known effect of acupuncture is the relief or reduction of pain.
Sedation: acupuncture decreases the delta and theta wave activity in the brain resulting in deep relaxation and/or sleep. This effect allows an acupuncturist to effectively treat conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, addictions, epilepsies, mental disorders and stress.
Psychological: there is a calming and tranquilizing action in addition to the sedative affect. Measureable changes in brain chemistry have been observed.
Homeostatic: this refers to the internal state of the body returning to a natural balance. This involves the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions of the nervous system and endocrine system.
Immune Enhancing: acupuncture can strengthen the body against disease.
Restoration: by stimulating the points and aiming for a free flow of energetic circulation, acupuncture helps local circulation, tissue-oxygenation and regeneration in order to promote the natural healing aspects of our bodies.
