What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a complex branch of ancient Chinese medicine, but its practical principles and methods are easily understood:

    #1 - Fourteen major energy channels called meridians course through the human body including the head, arms, hands, legs, feet, torso, and internal organs.

    #2 - A subtle energy called Chi (pronounced chee) circulates via the meridians to all parts of the body, even the most remote cells.

    #3 - Chi is the vital force, the presence of which seperates the living from the dead. Its balanced, unimpeded flow is critical to sound health.

    #4 - Any misdirection, blockage, or other derangement of the amount, flow, or balanced of Chi may result in pain, dysfunction, and ill health.

    #5 - With acupuncture needles, or other means, the acupuncturist stimulates certain points (acupoints) along the course of the meridians. Such stimulation helps restore the normal balance and flow of Chi so organs and bodily systems can work together in harmony as intended. This sets the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own health.

Meridians? What are They?

Meridians form a highly-complex invisible network transporting and directing Chi to every part of the body including the head, arms, legs, torso, organs, and systems.

What is Chi?

Chi is life force. It may not be visible but it is the reason all the organs and systems function well. When Chi flows smoothly and harmoniously throughout the meridians, each bodily system and organs, which in turn are interdependent, interrelated, and integrated. Everything works together to make us feel whole and healthy, thanks to Chi.

    What is Involved in Acupuncture Diagnosis?

    Pulse Diagnosis - An intricate expert evaluation of the pulses reveals excesses, deficiencies, disharmonies of Chi and what organs are involved.

    Observation of the Patient - Nothing color and condition of the tongue, texture and condition of the skin, of the hair, of the voice - its strength or weakness - high or low pitch - hoarse - throaty. Answers here confirm many health issues.

    Patient/Practitioner Consult
     - Seeking a history of the illness, the patient's feelings, lifestyle, diet. All of those, as well as emotional problems may contribute to Chi's imbalance.

    Physical Examination - Feeling for tender acupoints is a reliable diagnostic tool because certain acupoints are related to specific areas and functions of the body, and tenderness may relate to a specific problem.

    What are ear and hand Acupuncture?

    Strange as it may seem, the surface of the ear contains an invisible upside-down representation of a fetus and points on the ear correspond to bodily parts and organs. Stimulating appropriate ear points often effectively treats pain and disease in the corresponding parts or organs. Alcohol and drug addictions can be treated in that way as well.

    Stimulating certain points on the hand is often the treatment of choice for many conditions.
