Acupuncture treatment is an ancient therapy that has been used by acupuncturists for thousands of years both as a tool to address a wide range of health concerns and as a useful component in a healthy lifestyle regime. The practice of Acupuncture is a holistic form of therapy where the mind and body are viewed as a whole.
Acupuncture is based on the belief that life force, or Qi (pronounced as chi), flows through channels in the body known as meridians. Hair-thin needles are inserted by a medically trained acupuncturist along these meridians according to traditional medicine theory to stimulate, disperse, and/or regulate the flow of Qi. The goal is to restore a healthful energetic balance as well as to treat acute, chronic, and degenerative conditions.
Acupuncture therapy includes a range of traditional medicine modalities to help patients including: Acupuncture, Cupping, Gua Sha, Electro-acupuncture, Moxibustion, Ear Seeds, Tui Na, and the use of traditional herbal formulas and patches.
Acupuncturists undergo 5 years of comprehensive education including intensive clinical training using acupuncture and traditional medicine. Mandatory continuing education and upgrading is required to maintain the licensing status.
