An Introduction to Acupuncture

If you’re like most people, being stuck in traffic causes you to experience stress, because there is no movement when there should be movement. It’s the same with the body. When there is no flow and there should be a flow, problems result.

When the traffic starts moving again, you feel a lot better. Things have returned to their normal state. You feel like you can accomplish what you set out to do. When you are not feeling well, have physical pain or other symptoms, there is a traffic jam in your body.

If you try to water your garden, but there’s a kink or blockage in the hose that prevents water from getting through, the vital flow of water can’t reach the plants and they will wither and die.

The acupuncturist locates the kink or blockage in your body that is stopping vital energy, or qi, from flowing to your cells, organs and tissues. When the blockages are removed, you feel great.

By stimulating certain acupoints along the course of the meridians, the acupuncturist helps to restore the normal balance and flow of qi and blood. This sets the stage for bodily systems to work together in harmony and for tissues and organs to heal.

Two billion people worldwide and twelve million Americans use acupuncture to solve their health problems. One third of the world’s population uses acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine as their primary healthcare system.
