What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture South Carolina

Acupuncture is a therapeutic modality which encourages the body to promote natural healing and improve function. This is accomplished by placing fine needles in very precise acupuncture points. Medical acupuncture embodies our current understanding of neuromuscular anatomy while embracing the traditional Chinese notion of a subtle circulation network of a vivifying force called Qi ( pronounced “chee” ) or vital energy.

What is Qi?

Qi animates the mind and body. It protects us from illness and disease. Our health is dependent on the quality, quantity, and balance of Qi. In classical Chinese terms, Qi flows via specific pathways through the body and over its surface. Energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body providing nourishment to every living cell,organ, gland and tissue in the body. An obstruction in the movement on these “energy rivers” or blockage of the flow of Qi, can be detrimental to ones health and manifest as illness, pain, or disease. Flow of energy through the meridians can be influenced by needling acupuncture points . The acupuncture needles unblock the obstruction and reestablish regular energy flow.

Acupuncture treatment can therefore assist the body internal organs to correct and improve imbalances in digestion, absorption, and energy metabolism.

Why Use Needles?

The contemporary scientific explanation is that needling acupuncture points stimulates the peripheral and central nervous system to release chemicals in the surrounding tissues including muscle, spinal cord, and brain. These active chemicals play an important role in pain modulation and perception. In addition, a cascade of neurotransmitters, vasoactive peptides, and hormones are released which influence the human bodies own internal system of checks and balances.
