What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a powerful ancient healing art that delivers short-, medium-, and long-term results. It evolved in China over 2000 years ago, and its solid principles have resulted in its original methodologies still standing true today, even withstanding contemporary scientific testing.
The underlying philosophy of acupuncture is that in order for the human body to function optimally, it has to maintain balance across all its internal systems. The ancient Chinese referred to balancing the yin and yang.

How Does Acupuncture Work?
Another term, Qi or Chi [pronounced “chee”], refers to our Life Force energy. Qi is most commonly known as your body’s bioelectricity found within the body. It is thought that it circulates throughout the body via neuro-pathways (meridians/circuits/pathways) and, through a daily rhythm, it maintains balance or homeostasis. Fourteen meridians create the framework of acupuncture points and, when we are healthy, the energy flows through the network uninterrupted. Injuries, illness, and stress can block the flow, which creates stagnation, and you may experience pain, stiffness, and swelling.
The stagnation, pain, stiffness, and swelling are unblocked via acupuncture points by means of very fine, specialized, one-use (single-use) needles. Finger pressure or tuina medical massage, heat, and cupping may also be used. When expertly done, the free flow of energy is achieved, giving you pain relief, improved mobility or function, improved health, and an improved quality of life.

What Are The Tools Of Acupuncture?
Acupuncture needles - these are not the needles you see in doctors’ offices. These are highly specialized/specific, extremely slender threads made of stainless steel, copper, or other metals. Their length varies from 0.3 mm (earlobe needles) or ranging over 150 mm long for deep muscle use. You may feel an initial pressure with the insertion of the needle followed by a deeper potentially electrical sensation. This sensation indicates that your practitioner is in the correct location and should reassure your confidence.
When electro-acupuncture (electroacupuncture) is used, this may speed up the results compared to conventual acupuncture.
