Acupuncture focuses on correcting energetic imbalances in the body and restoring a healthful flow of our lifeforce energy – known as Chi or Qi – through the body’s energetic system, or meridians.
There are points or nodules along the energetic pathways, called acupuncture points, and stimulated these serves to release energetic blockages and areas of stagnation, encouraging energy to flow freely once more. This stimulation is accomplished by insertion of very fine needles into the points.
Not sure about needles? No worries! There are other ways to balance your energy flow, including acupressure – the use of only the fingertips to apply pressure – and cupping – the use of small glass cups to create a sustained vacuum, creating pressure on the points. Both are completely noninvasive and also effective.
Which Conditions May Acupuncture Benefit?
Because acupuncture restores the body’s energy balance and reestablishes a healthy flow, it can be helpful for many conditions, including chronic low-back pain, fibromyalgia, migraine, degenerative diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, irritable bowel syndrome, and respiratory disorders such as asthma and sinusitis.
