Acupuncture is a 5000 year old healing method that works toward bringing a person back to optimal balance from a place of imbalance. Although it consists of complex theories, meanings, and patterns it is essentially about energy flow. If you compare it to nature you may have a better understanding. The Planet is in constant motion. The Oceans are constantly bringing their tides in and out. The Rivers are always flowing. What happens when a pond becomes stagnant? Things rot! It begins to smell bad. This toxic environment breeds infection, and sooner or later things begin to die. The same is true for the body. We need out blood to flow. We need the toxins in our systems to be constantly excreted and nutritious food and clean air to be cycled in. Otherwise a more and more toxic environment is created.
Acupuncture is a very effective way to encourage this flow of energy. Stress, injury, trauma, and negligence are some of the things that stop or hinder the movement or flow. Everyone experiences these to some extent. The longer the imbalances are ignored the more severe the disharmony can become, possibly creating illness, pain, allergies, insomnia, depression, anxiety, digestive disorders, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, IBS, female disorders, auto immune disorders, migraine headaches, TMJ syndrome, learning disabilities, and many more. Acupuncture can do a lot to prevent imbalances from creating illness and pain. It can help bring someone who has pain or is experiencing illness to reverse or manage their situation. When a person has an illness and needs Western Medical attention they are advised to seek out and get that help. Acupuncture may be done as an adjunct to traditional Allopathic Medical care.
