Acupuncture is a medical model that is well over
two thousand years old. It is an alchemy of art and science. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles
into the body at very specific points which have been shown to be effective in the treatment of specific health issues. These
points are areas where energy, qi, (pronounced chee), pools along channels, or meridians, which have been mapped on the
human body.There are more than a thousand known acupoints. Over the past few decades electromagnetic research has confirmed
the existence and location of such points.
Human Body is an amazing machine. There are numerous mechanisms within the body which assist it in "righting"
itself or bringing it back to a homeostatic way of being.
Having stated that,
in this incredibly fast-paced, stress-filled world, where people are living lives on "overdrive", there
are numerous factors, or "stressors", which contribute to pushing people away from a place of balance
or homeostasis. When these influences, or "stressors", continue over time, it can lead to "dis"-order
or "dis"-ease. Thus creating a cycle which requires being broken. There are numerous ways in which the
cycle can be broken. Two potential ways are through the use of acupuncture and therapeutic massage. These are two non-invasive
and profoundly effective ways of nudging the body and "re"-minding it of its natural balanced state and how to return
there. Chinese Medicine, a model almost three thousand years old, operates on the premise that "nothing occurrs in a
vacume", it addresses the human being as an entire entity. Often patients come away from this treatment with beautiful
side affects such as; increased energy, better sleep, and a profoundly improved over all sense of well being.
