What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a form of health care therapy.

It involves the insertion of very fine, sterile needles into the body at specific points called acupuncture points.

The therapist determines which acupuncture points to needle based on the condition that is to be treated.

Acupuncture therapy is used to treat a wide variety of health conditions, prevent illness and promote wellness.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

The insertion of acupuncture needles in the body promotes a healing response in the body.

A neural message is relayed to the brain which then results in more blood flow, endorphins and other neurotransmitters such as histamine released at the area of insertion.

Therefore, the insertion of needles at the acupuncture points affects the energy flow in the body.

By balancing the flow of energy, Acupuncture can also have a therapeutic effect on the whole body.

For example, when treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, we might needle an acupuncture point named PC 6. This point can help with the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel, but can also help reduce anxiety and nausea.
