What is Acupuncture? Acupuncture treatments are based on the belief that energy flows throughout your body. This life energy, called ch'i courses through the body in channels similar to rivers that course through the earth. When the ch'i in the body is full and flowing health is promoted. When the chi'i is not full and flowing, illness can begin. Systems are the body's distress signal warning that there is a problem.
What can acupuncture help? While acupuncture is widely known to relieve pain, it is also helpful for many conditions in which pain is not primary, including a wide variety of conditions. Acupuncture has been helpful with a wide range of conditions such as:
- Addictions, allergies, anxiety, arthritis, asthma, back pain, common cold, depression, digestion, fatigue, headache, insomnia, joint pain, menstrual pain, migraine, mood swings, sinusitis, etc.
Many other conditions have been successfully treated with acupuncture and should be discussed with your practitioner.
