Overview

For the traditionalists, the idea of sticking needles into a person’s body is a really bizarre thought that’s more likely to cause pain rather than healing. But, for the non-traditionalists and those familiar with acupuncture, you understand the exact science involved when needles are inserted into the skin.

In acupuncture, the needles are not inserted haphazardly but rather strategically. These extremely thin needles are put in at specific points where the flow of energy is believed to be blocked. It is believed that when these pathways in the body along which energy flows is cleared up, then the flow of energy throughout other points of the body becomes unhindered, thus promoting overall health and well-being.

The healing technique in acupuncture is simple: to keep the flow of energy balanced all through the body. The key is to find the congested points along the pathways and to insert the needles at those points to obtain a re-balance of energy flow.

Acupuncture was born and was first practiced in China over 2,000 years ago. It is considered alternative medicine because the method cannot be fully explained in scientific terms. However, because of its effectiveness in chemotherapy and post surgery benefits, western medicine has adapted it as a complementary approach together with the traditional forms.
