What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the use of extremely thin disposable sterile surgical stainless-steel needles (as thin as 0.16mm; strand of hair can be 0.12mm) which are inserted into the skin in various locations all over the body. Acupuncture is really the instrument that allows Chinese Medicine to “work its healing magic” on disease and disharmony rooted deep inside the body. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been researched, studied and applied to the body for well over 2,000 years. It’s theories and practices have been proven to be a safe and natural approach to healing.  Chinese Medicine looks at the entire body, each of its individual systems and how they interact with one another to determine the root cause of where the body’s disease or disharmony is coming from. Working the root cause is the only way to truly resolve the disease or disharmony and get you back to health and wellness. Chinese Medicine utilizes acupuncture to activate the body’s own natural healing abilities to resolve the disease or disharmony. It can also strengthen and support the body to help prevent future illness and disease. 

There are two styles of Acupuncture that can be used to apply Chinese Medicine to the body: Chinese or Japanese.

Chinese Style Acupuncture (Traditional)

Chinese Style Acupuncture is the more common and more traditional approach to applying Chinese Medicine to the body. It involves using super fine sterile stainless-steel needles into designated acupuncture points located all over the body.

Japanese Style Acupuncture (non-needle options)

Japanese Style Acupuncture is less common and requires additional formal training and education. The Japanese approach is similar to the Chinese Style, in that it utilizes acupuncture points located all over the body, but it is uses significantly fewer stainless-steel needles which are thinner and gentler than those used in Chinese Acupuncture. Japanese Acupuncture also offers a variety of non-needle instruments that can be used instead of stainless-steel needles for patients who are needle phobic, for children of all ages and for the elderly.
