Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting needles at very precise acupuncture points on the body to relieve pain or for therapeutic purposes. The word acupuncture comes from the Latin acus, "needle", and pungere, "to prick". In Standard Mandarin, 針砭 (zhēn biān) (a related word, 針灸 (zhēn jiǔ), refers to acupuncture together with moxibustion).
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine has been practiced for over thousands of years.
Acupuncture is generally painless however some disorders require stronger needle stimulation for effective results. This is most often the case with orthopedic and musculo-skeletal disorders in which "motor points" are stimulated to reset and restore proper firing of muscular tissue. This is a very effective and modern acupuncture technique which often achieves quick results.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments needed differs from person to person. For complex or long-standing conditions, one or two treatments a week for several months may be recommended. For acute problems, usually fewer visits are required.
Many conditions may be treated with acupuncture and its adjunct therapies including cupping and moxibustion.
