Acupuncture in a nutshell:
There are numerous styles of acupuncture, but the common thread among them is that they all help establish the proper flow of blood circulation in the body.
Imbalances within the body can occur due to injury, stress, or disease. Inversely, injury, stress, or disease can occur from imbalances in the body.
Acupuncture stimulates the proper "natural" healing neuropeptides, such as endorphins, enkelphins, and serotonin. The combination of points used are very important in telling the brain where to direct the circulation, in order to promote healing.
•Why do we use needles?
Our bodies have energy! MRIs use energy, as do EKGs. Our hearts conduct electrical impulses. We have ionic, positive and negative reactions constantly occurring in our bodies. The metal needles are inserted into chosen acupuncture points to help conduct and redirect the ionic reaction to certain areas of the body.
Rule of thumb for effective acupuncture treatments:
The ideal approach to illness is to begin treatment as soon as possible! The sooner you seek help, the faster you will heal. For longstanding illnesses, weekly treatments may be required for several months in order to have a curative effect.
