The ancient practice of acupuncture originated in China over 3000 years ago and is one of the traditional therapies in the practice of Chinese medicine. The foundational guiding principles for traditional Chinese medicine were already well established at this time. Since then, acupuncture has become widely studied and refined to help with the prevention, correction, and maintenance of the symptoms and causes behind many conditions. It is recognized globally to be safe and effective.
Acupuncturists use sterile, single-use disposable needles, which are about as thin as a human hair and designed so that they cause little to no pain when inserted. The needles are inserted into specific points along in the body to create physiological changes and elicit a healing response. Modern research has shown that acupuncture works by stimulating a broad range of systems in our body. Acupuncture can stimulate our immune system, increasing blood cell count and activity. It can help reduce pain by releasing neurotransmitters in the body and deactivating areas in our brain that process pain. Acupuncture can help ease stress and tension, improve digestive symptoms, and lower blood pressure by regulating the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. It can assist with healing after an injury or accident by stimulating the body to deliver blood and nutrients to the injured area.
