What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a very important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Its use and effectiveness have been well known for over four thousand years in China. The word “acupuncture” is derived from Latin, “acu” meaning “with needle” and English, “puncture” meaning penetrating the skin.

Acupuncture can treat many illnesses from acute to chronic conditions with the same method because most illnesses result from the same cause, disruption to the “Qi.” The goal of acupuncture is to remove this disruption and restore the natural flow of energy back to the body.

What is QI?
Qi has many different translations, but the easiest way of understanding Qi is to think of it as “energy.” Qi is the flow of energy in the body. Energy is the life force that flows through the body and without energy the body is lifeless.

How does it work?
An acupuncturist will apply needles to specific acupuncture points to either unblock the disruption or to provide a more balanced energy flow. This “correction” can be used for a deficient energy flow or excessive energy flow. Some people believe that the needle is applied to specific acupuncture points to stimulate the nervous system to release chemicals (endorphins) into the body or to produce neurotransmitters such as serotonin and noradrenalin. Acupuncture is natural healing without any side effects. It promotes physical and emotional well being and prevents illness.

How long does it last?
The duration of treatments varies depending on the illness and its severity. Acute conditions may take less time than chronic conditions. However, the patients will usually feel the positive change in their conditions following three or four treatments.

Does it hurt?
Most of the time, patients do not feel any pain at all during the insertion of the needles. Some may feel a very slight pain at certain points while others may feel more pain than others, this depends on how sensitive a person's skin is or how fearful they are of needles (fear factor).
