Acupuncture is an ancient form of medical practice that restores proper circulation and function to the body, and it has been in use for over three thousand years.
The circulatory system is similar in both Chinese & Western medicine. The meridians, also known as channels or vessels, follow specific pathways, and are connected end to end so they form one big loop, and go to all of the organs, tissues and cells of the body. They carry blood, oxygen and nutrients. There should be free and easy circulation. Anytime there is a blockage, your body isn’t getting what it needs, and now you have “illness”. Probably the biggest difference in the eastern and western understanding of circulation is that in western medicine, once it is able to recognize a blockage, things have advanced pretty far. In eastern medicine we are able to identify mild blockages that can be easily remedied.
Acupuncture uses very small needles, inserted at specific points along the body’s meridians, to improve circulation. Acupuncture has a long history of improving fertility and treating reproductive health issues, as wells as pain relief, stress management, and an increase in energy.
