The health benefits of acupuncture, an ancient system of healing practiced in Asia for many centuries, are becoming well-known.
For centuries, the goal of an acupuncture practitioner has been to ‘tap into’ specific points on a patient’s body to promote and restore the balance of energy in the body, referred to in Eastern medicine as the flow of chi. Restoring this delicate balance via acupuncture can help relieve a wide range of health related issues, including all of the following:
• Pain from degenerative disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, degenerative disc disease
• Pain from traumatic injury
• Post-surgical pain
• Migraine headaches and other neurological problems, including Parkinson Disease
• Digestive issues, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome
• Emotional issues, including depression and anxiety
• Stroke rehabilitation
• Addiction recovery support
Even mainstream medicine is starting to accept that acupuncture can help with issues such as relaxation and pain relief. Acupuncture usually involves the use of needles, a fact that discourages many people from even trying it. Fortunately, there are alternatives that do not require needles. Logically, these treatments are referred to as Needle-less Acupuncture.
Illness is perceived as a manifestation of a decline of the body’s vital force or Jing Qi. The abdominal pattern, referred to as Sho, is the primary source of diagnostic information. The object of therapy is to tonify Jing Qi in order to eliminate symptoms. Treatment in this context is a life-affirming act designed to promote longevity and well-being rather than simply to ‘combat disease.’
