01.What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a complex branch of ancient Chinese Medicine, but is practical principles and methods are easily understood. Fourteen major energy channels called meridians course through the human body including the head, arms, hands, leg, feet, torso, and internal organs. A subtle energy called Chi circulates via meridians to all parts of the body, even the most remote cells. Chi is the vital force, the presence of which separates the living from the dead.
Its balanced, unimpeded flow is critical to sound health. Any misdirection, blockage or other derangement of the amount, flow, or balance of Chi may result in pain, dysfunction and ill health. With acupuncture needles, or other means the acupuncturist stimulates certain point (acupoint) along the course of the meridians. Such stimulation organs and bodily systems can work together in harmony as intended
This sets the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own health.
02.What are the main objectives of Acupuncture treatment?

The main objectives are three:
1) Relieving pain and other symptoms,
2) Strengthening the immune system and
3) Balancing, harmonizing and integrating the function of the organs with each other, making for a unified, healthy person, rather than
a collection of fragmented, disharmonious parts.

03. How old is Acupuncture?

The first formal record of acupuncture was complied in China between 300 B.C. and 100 B.C., but that compilation is so extensive and complete it’s obvious acupuncture had been practiced long before that time.
Based on recent archaeological discoveries, scholars now believe acupuncture in a rudimentary form may date back 5000, even 7000 years. It’s probably safe to say that acupuncture has been a healing method to some degree at least that long.

04. Acupuncture Treatments

Most people who suspect themselves being victims of pain often turn to pain killer drugs to be relieved from the pain. But drugs are sometimes harsh on the digestive and endocrine systems, which might cause side effects. The relief is also temporary, which will reappear once the drug in not taken.
Acupuncture treatment benefits the body in a natural way without side effects and yet reaching the goal of permanent pain relief. It stimulates the body to produce a natural pain reliever within out biological system, the endorphin.

05. Herbal Treatment

Herbal formulas are sometimes prescribed to patients besides the acupuncture treatment. Certain herbs are very effective in pain relieving, by relaxing the muscle tension and promoting tissue growth to replace the damaged tissue for a faster healing.
