What is modern acupuncture?

A pillar of ancient Eastern medicine, acupuncture is a therapeutic technique that works to instill harmony and balance into our bodies. It has been a proven, safe and effective treatment for centuries across the world. We are not joking – historians believe that acupuncture dates back before recorded history!

Acupuncture, as we know it today, began in China. It remains a pillar of traditional Chinese medicine. Through incorporating Western medicine practices and technologies, modern acupuncture evolved as a pivotal healing treatment for various ailments. This treatment combines thousands of years of traditional Chinese medicine practice with the present-day awareness of our body’s functions and biggest stressors. This approach allows modern acupuncture to correct our bodies’ imbalances and restore our energy.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture works by applying thin needles through the skin at strategic points on the body. These points are not random. Each point serves as a direct indicator of powerful energy channels in our bodies. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the functions of these channels (or meridians) are key to our health. When our body experiences pain or illness, it is a sign that one or more of these channels are blocked.

The job of an acupuncture professional is to utilize these points to relieve these channels from strain. This process is what makes acupuncture a very personalized treatment. Licensed acupuncture professionals go through many years of training to have a professional understanding of these channels, their abilities, and their locations. They know how to navigate each channel as needed for your condition, to alleviate the tension building up in your body.

We know that needles may sound scary to some. However, acupuncture is mostly – if not completely – painless. Many patients say it makes them feel a sense of relief.

What conditions can acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture is a treatment for both physical and emotional pain relief. It is an effective option for patients suffering from chronic physical pain, such as migraines, sciatica, or neck pain. Acupuncture can also support those undergoing cancer treatments or other medical therapies that cause undesirable side effects like nausea and vomiting.

Acupuncture plays a valuable role in women’s health as well. For centuries, acupuncture has been a treatment for infertility in Eastern medicine. It also provides support for the various menstrual issues women may face. In addition, acupuncture has helped many women relieve discomfort during pregnancy and menopause.

When it comes to our emotional lives, acupuncture brings harmonious rewards. It is a tool for establishing balance in our hectic lives. Therefore, acupuncture treatments can be very beneficial for those facing anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
