What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture uses tiny needles (about the width of a hair) to stimulate acupuncture points on the body. Treatment of acupuncture points helps to resolve pain; strengthen bodily function such as digestion, hormones and blood circulation; and regulate emotions.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture works by helping the body to get more out of its own natural healing resources.

Our bodies produce a wide range of natural pain relieving substances, natural anti-inflammatory chemistry, hormones, immune system enhancers, and so forth, all without the need for outside drugs.

 In fact, some of our most effective drugs are man-made synthetic copies of the chemistry our body makes naturally like cortisone.  In modern medicine we made the mistake of assuming that when a problem lingers and is not healed right away by our internal natural resources, this must mean it is beyond our body’s ability to heal. 

We then look to bring-in outside resources likes drugs or surgery to address the problem. 

The fact is though that just because a problem is not healed right away by our internal resources does not necessarily mean it is beyond those resources.   We don’t always get 100% from our inside self-healing resources.  Acupuncture helps us squeeze more out of our natural ability to heal ourselves – to get closer to 100% of our full potential.

Your body has already been trying to heal your problem but has not yet been able to get the upper hand on it.

A good course of acupuncture treatment should always be able to help anyone to improve their body’s healing efforts by at least 10-20%.  What I need to figure out is whether or not the 10-20% boost from acupuncture will make the difference needed to help your body to finish the job.  Acupuncture helps to balance the body allowing the body to heal optimally.
