Acupuncture is part of an integrated system of primary healthcare, known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has an uninterrupted history of development dating back thousands of years in China and other parts of Eastern Asia.
The origins of acupuncture in China can be traced back at least 2000 years, making it one of the oldest and most long-standing health care systems in the world.
Today, acupuncture, is an affective, natural, and increasingly popular form of healthcare that is being used by people from a wide range of cultural and social backgrounds.
The balance of Chi, or Qi in some publications (a term used to describe vital energy in the body) is the vey foundation of being alive and functioning in Traditional Chinese Medicine technologies.
Each acupuncture point, one way or another, are connected to each organ in the body. Addressing massage to specific acupuncture points, releases blocked Chi and helps your body's immune system to finish the job. Some acupuncture points are very easy to identify. They are points of pain (back pain, neck pain, etc.).
Acupuncture takes a holistic approach to understanding the normal function and disease process. It focusses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterling needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) along the body's meridians to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of Chi through the individual. The practitioner may also stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods, including moxibustion, cupping, laser therapy, electro-stimulation and massage, in order to re-establish the flow of Chi.
