Acupuncture and Oriental Herbology
successfully treat many complaint and illnesses, as well as being an excellent form of preventative medicine. Acupuncture involves the insertion and manipulation of needles, about the thickness of a hair into specific areas of the body, just under the skin. Classic Chinese acupuncture uses about 1000 points, which are connected by meridians, or imaginary lines along the body's surface. The Chinese believe that Qi, the energy force that controls health and disease, flows along these meridians. Any imbalance in the life forces of yin and yang disrupts the flow of Qi. This, the goal of acupuncture is to cure the disease or overcome pain by restoring the body's basic harmony between yin and yang. Acupuncture promotes the body's natural healing ability, and most conditions can be corrected or improved. It is effective for physical, psychological, and emotional problems,. Since each person is unique, the number of treatments may vary, and the treatment is usually not painful. The first visit usually takes longer as the acupuncturist seeks to learn as much as possible about the personal past health history. Some problems may disappear with the first visit. Acupuncture is a comprehensive system of health care and health maintenance, and the effectiveness is well documented.
