Acupuncture is a holistic therapy that helps to strengthen the immune system, prevent disease, control pain, and improve the quality of life. Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing with a history of approximately 5000 years.
A traditional explanation of how acupuncture works is that your body is composed of pathways or "meridians" which energy or "Qi" flows through. When these pathways become obstructed, deficient, or imbalanced, your health is disrupted, leading to pain and illness. Acupuncture promotes the healthy flow of Qi through the insertion of very thin filiform needles into specific points on the body.
From a western explanation, many physiological changes to the body can be observed during an Acupuncture treatment. There is an increase in white blood cells, antibody and prostaglandin levels increase, endorphins are secreted throughout the body, and there is noted increase in circulation through the relaxation of vasodilators. All of this combined initiates an immune response that helps target the cause of discomfort and pain.
