WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture, which is one branch of East Asian Medicine, is a procedure that involves the insertion of disposable, sterile needles into specific points on the body to treat the pain and dysfunction that arises when vital energy becomes blocked or weakened in the body. When energy ceases to flow it can affect anatomic locations or body systems (such as the circulatory, musculoskeletal, digestive, nervous, or other system). By stimulating acupuncture points that lie along meridians on the surface of the body, related internal body functions are affected and energy blocks are released allowing natural flow to resume and proper functioning, health, and equilibrium to be restored to the affected areas and greater body systems.
WHAT IS EAST ASIAN MEDICINE?
Originating in the regions modernly known as China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Mongolia, and Taiwan, more than 4,000 years ago and more specifically developed into Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in the 1950’s, this is one of the oldest and most commonly used forms of alternative medicine in the world today. East Asian Medicine helps patients of all ages with physical and psycho-emotional complaints. Treatments focus on balancing energies of the body using Acupuncture, Herbology, Tui Na (massage) and Qi Gong (exercises). Thus, the ultimate goal of East Asian Medicine is to facilitate the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
