Acupuncture is a non-drug, non-invasive therapy that may produce a varity of benefits-from pain management to helping with low-back pain, headaches, and osteoarthritis. Acupuncture practitioners believe that illness is caused from interference with the flow of energy, also called chi, and imbalance of two opposing and complementary forces within the body: yin, the cold and passive aspect, and yang, the hot, active, and excited aspect.
To restore the balance between yin and yang and to unblock chi, acupuncture stimulates specific points of the body through several techniques, including insertion of hair-thin metal needles through the skin. In Chinese medicine, chi is believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in the body, which are accessible through more than 350 acupuncture points. Western medicine explains the effect of acupuncture through stimulation nerves, muscles, and connective tissue, which increases the body’s natural activity to regulate pain and increase blood flow.
