How does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture works by resetting the flow of energy through the acupuncture channels, similar to flipping a circuit breaker.
From a western perspective, Acupuncture stimulates areas of the brain linked to:
- Hormone Output
- Neurotransmitter Release
- Organ Function
- Mood, Mental Focus, & Sleep
- Blood Pressure
- Immune Function
- Circulation & Healing
- Release of Natural Pain Relieving Chemicals
From an eastern perspective, it is believed that illness and disease arise when the body’s energy, or Qi (pronounced chee), becomes unbalanced or blocked within the body’s meridians. Meridians can be thought of as conduits of wire running throughout the body, each associated with a specific organ system. Blockages in Qi can be detrimental to a person’s health and cause a wide range of both physical and emotional symptoms, depending on the meridians involved. Acupuncture works to restore and balance Qi through the gentle insertion of disposable, hair-thin needles at specific points on the body, stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal.
What does Acupuncture feel like?
Acupuncture uses sterile, disposable, hair-thin, flexible needles that you will hardly feel. They may produce a unique sensation that Chinese medicine calls De Qi. Patients often describe De Qi as a heavy, achy pressure, or spreading, traveling feeling. You may also feel an “electrical” sensation moving down the meridian pathways, though this is less common. Most patients find these sensations deeply satisfying and leave the treatment feeling relaxed both mentally and physically.
I made an appointment to see Dr Eric for low back pain and sciatica from a slipped disc. I could barely walk when I arrived and on the very fist visit the pain was 80% gone from just a few needles in my hand. Amazing and would highly recommend!Sarah M.
I had a case of Bell’s Palsy last March. Elizabeth was able to restore me back to health when the neurologist told me there was nothing that could be done. I began seeing good results after a couple of visits. Thanks.Art S.
