What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture has over 2000 years of history with clinically proven medical results.  It is based on empirical studies on human bodies, and is not based on mysticism or philosophy.  Its concept, the balance of Yin & Yang, or the homeostasis of polar opposites, has not changed.  Acupuncture points used thousands of years ago are still used today.

Acupuncture does not have a similar anatomy to Western science, instead it has tested effective functions.  The major difference between acupuncture and Western science is that acupuncture treats the body as a whole.

Sterile and disposal needles are gently inserted in the body along the acupuncture energetic channels, called meridians. Japanese Acupuncture technique is non-invasive and painless to many.

What is Qi?

Qi (in Chinese) or Ki (in Japanese) is the body energy, a Life Energy.  It is an energy which binds all things in the universe.  In the binding, Qi exists in the bonding relationship to the whole.  It is an energy of relationship, always striving to be balanced. 

When the balance is disturbed, free flow of Qi energy in the meridians is affected, and pain and illness may develop. 

Acupuncture nourishes the vital components of life, bringing the whole body into homeostasis.

What To Expect

Wear light and comfortable clothes.  Most acupuncture points are located in the hands and feet, head, abdomen, and back. 

During an acupuncture session, most people experience comfort and relaxation, some may fall asleep.  Sense of emotional clearing is common.

A number of treatments required is discussed with each client for the maximum benefits.

Professional quality herbs in granule (powder form) are available when they are appropriate.

How Safe Is Acupuncture?

Japanese Acupuncture only uses sterile and disposable acupuncture needles and adheres to clean needle technique in accordance with the National Acupuncture Foundation.

What Is Moxibustion?

Moxibustion is a healing technique of burning the herb called mugwort.  It may be burned on the handle of the needle, above the skin, or on salt.  The burning of mugwort, or more commonly known as moxa, gives warmth to the body, activating a meridian.

Physiological Effects of Acupuncture

The NIH (National Institute of Healith) studies suggest that acupuncture stimulates the production of chemical transmitters between the neurons (neurotransmitters) and increases the sense of wellbeing.

Acupuncture is thought to be particularly effective in inducing the opioid peptide (endorphins, enkephalins, and dynorphins) which are closely involved with the perception of pain in the central nervous system, thereby regulating and reducing pain.

Acupuncture is thought to affect electric energy between tissues, thereby facilitating healing by allowing transfer of nutrients to injured or affected cells.

Another theory considers that acupuncture affects the blood concentration of triglycerides, cholesterol, and phospholipids, helping the production of healthy blood and ensuring the free flow of oxygen.

Despite of the numerous studies, concrete evidence on how acupuncture works by Western science remains elusive.  Several theories have been claimed, and whatever the explanation, the merit and success of acupuncture can stand along.
