Acupuncture is the most commonly used modality of Chinese Medicine. It is the use of very thin Sterilized stainless steel needles on specific points along the Acupuncture channels. These channels run throughout the body, if there are any blockages in the flow of Qi and blood, disease and or pain often occurs. Acupuncture helps eliminate blockages and restore balance to the normal flow of “Chi”. Keeping this balance helps prevent the new diseases. The needles are arranged in order to stimulate the body’s own ability to heal itself.
For me Acupuncture is being in a peaceful state and at times a spiritual experience. Things may come up and be released. Being in that peaceful state for 30 minutes helps you relax, and put into perspective what is important. Acupuncture can be like floating in a cloud. You may feel mild sensations come and go, bringing you into a deeper state of relaxation.
