One of the oldest healing modalities, acupuncture is both an art and science of flow in the human body. Whether we think of the organic aliveness of our bodies as energy, fluids, blood, electrical impulses via the nervous system or a continuous web of connective tissue, acupuncture is about creating and improving circulation in all these areas to help the body repair and re-organize itself.
A skilled acupuncturist inserts tiny needles into specific points to unblock, improve tone and soften restrictions. Science now shows us that everything in our body is interconnected. Through its unique and gentle mechanism, acupuncture promotes balance and normalizes function in all of the organs and systems of our body, helping them to do what they are supposed to do.
Because of its global effect on the whole body, acupuncture treats a wide variety of physical problems, as well as influencing the mental, emotional and spiritual levels of wellness. It often has immediate, deep, and lasting effects, which is why it has endured as a respected form of medicine for thousands of years.
Where there is no movement there is pain. Where there is movement there is no pain.
Maintaining order rather than correcting disorder is the ultimate principle of wisdom. To cure disease after it has appeared is like digging a well when one already feels thirsty, or forging weapons after the war has begun.
