Acupuncture is a technique, part of traditional Chinese Medicine
used to smooth the flow of Qi or Chi (the vital body energy). By
inserting needles at particular points on the body, it balances the
opposing forces of yin and yang. Chi is an energy that allegedly
permeates all things. It is believed to flow through the body along 12
main pathways and 8 extra pathways called meridians. When yin and
yang are in harmony, chi flows freely within the body and a person is
healthy. When a person is sick, diseased, or injured, there is an
obstruction of chi along the meridians. Traditional Chinese medicine
has identified over 2000 specific points where needles are to be
inserted for specific effects.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used healing system in the world.
Originated in China over 3,500 years.
Today, the needles are twirled, heated, or even stimulated with electrical current,
ultrasound, or certain wavelengths of light.
A variation of traditional acupuncture is called auricular therapy or ear acupuncture.
It is a method of diagnosis and treatment based on the belief that the ear is the
map of the bodily organs as it resembles a baby in the womb. For example, a
problem with an organ such as the liver is to be treated by sticking a needle into a
certain point on the ear that corresponds to the point for that organ. A variation of
auriculotherapy, also uses small seeds, balls or intra-dermal needles at key points
on the ear, recently used successfully for the treatment of stress relief, PTSD,
smoke and drug detox, balance body weight by suppressing excessive appetite and
As technology advances, new methods have been implemented to Traditional
Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture. Color light therapy is used in our
practice, using the Acutron machine. This technique do not require the insertion of
needles but uses 2 probes through which small electrical stimulus combined with
color, activate specific meridian points.
This is a great alternative for children and those who cannot tolerate needles.
Our practice uses fire cupping, moxibustion, massage and herbal therapy is to aid
the body in its healing process. By using the appropriate combination of herbs in a
formula, patients are able to continue to assist their bodies at home.
