What is Acupuncture
Acupuncture is one of the modalities of Oriental medicine. Although what is called acupuncture in the west compromises several different therapies ( such as moxibustion and cupping) mostly it consists of the insertion of needles into the body at specific points shown to be effective in the treatments of specific health problems. These points have been mapped by the Chinese over a period of two thousand years and there are several hundred known acupuncture points. In the past three decades, electromagnetic research has confirmed the existence and location of these points.

How does acupuncture work?
Modern Western medicine cannot yet explain how acupuncture works. Traditional Asian acupuncture is based on ancient Chinese theories of the low of qi( a fine, essential substance which nourishes and constructs the body) through distinct channels that cover the body somewhat like the nerves and blood vessels. According to the theory, acupuncture adjusts, the low of qi in the body, leading it to areas where it is stuck and /or superabundant. In this way, acupuncture restores the harmonious balance of the body and it parts.
Is acupuncture safe?
When performed by a licensed and trained professional, acupuncture is extremely safe. All licensed acupuncturists today use individual packages sterile, disposable needles.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture needles are typically not much thicker than a hair and their insertion is practically painless. It is like receiving an ordinary injection. In some cases, you will not even know the needles are in place. In
others, there may by some tingling, warmth, heaviness, or a feeling of the qi moving up and down the channels. Most people find acupuncture extremely relaxing, and many fall asleep during treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
That depends on the duration, severity, and nature of your complaint. You may need only a single treatment for an acute condition. A series of 5-10 treatments may resolve many chronic problems. Some degenerative condition may require treatments over a longer period of time. To help reduce the number of treatments, you practitioner may suggest dietary modification , specific exercises regimes, relaxation techniques, self massage, an/or
