What is Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an effective complimentary medical practice to alleviate pain and treat a variety of conditions. Acupuncture can correct imbalances in the body and promote self-healing allowing for smooth flow of vital energy called Qi to nourish the cells of our body. Health is influenced by the quantity, quality and balance of Qi. There are various form of qi that include oxygen, nutrients and blood.
Acupuncture can improve the immune system and increase the body’s overall vitality. When there is a blockage in one part of the body, the flow of Qi becomes restricted in other parts. This can be detrimental to a person’s health, cutting off vital nourishment to the body, organs and glands. On its own, pain, disease or illness can occur. Qi is affected by physical and emotional trauma, stress, sedentary lifestyle, overexertion, seasonal changes, poor diet, accidents, or excessive activity.
When the body isn’t receiving proper blood flow it can’t function or heal properly. Acupuncture dilates the blood vessels to increase blood flow to the stimulated areas of the body. This increases organ function, relieves pain and slows the aging process. Acupuncture also stimulates the nervous system to naturally relieve pain.
