Acupuncture is rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Taoist philosophy, which has been refined of the past 5000 years to presently integrate elements of contemporary western biomedical knowledge. As a system of medicine, TCM employs a variety of modalities, including acupuncture, to treat a diversity of ailments.
Acupuncture stimulates the balance and flow of Qi (vital energy) that in TCM is considered essential to health. When the body is healthy, Qi flows smoothly through the meridians that make up a network of pathways or channels throughout the entire body. When the balance or flow of Qi is deficient or obstructed it may be diseased or susceptible to illness. Based on the foundation of yin/yang, acupuncture treats both the symptoms and the root causes of the patient’s illness. Acupuncture uses with the five elements and eight principles to diagnose and treat imbalances in the meridians and internal organs. In western medicine, the yin/yang balance that acupuncture and other TCM modalities achieve is known as homeostasis.
The insertion of tiny needles in different areas of the body along channels or meridians releases muscle tension, alleviate pain, and regulate the nervous system. The needles remain in place for 20-40 minutes, depending upon your individual diagnosis. The use of a specialized TDP (infared heating lamp) or other modalities such as cupping (glass or silicon cups used to provide tissue suction or a "reverse massage" ), tui na (Chinese massage), gua sha (gentle skin scraping with a jade tool), moxibustion (burning of the herb mugwort), and Traditional Chinese medicine dietary and lifestyle guidance may be added to your treatment to maximize the healing potential. It should not be painful but a variety of sensations will be experienced depending upon the individual. This Acupuncture treatment will include an initial intake and evaluation of your condition and create a diagnosis that will guide treatments.
