What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is part of Traditional Oriental Medicine, the most widely used healing system in the world. Traditional Oriental Medicine is a complete medical system that combines herbs, moxabustion (a form of heating), cupping, gua sha (scraping skin to increase circulation), massage, diet, and gentle exercise along with acupuncture to correct energy imbalances in the body.
The practice of acupuncture is rooted in ancient China. It is mentioned in the Huang-Di Nei-Jing (The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine), during the time of the Yellow Emperor, Huang-ti, who is said to have ruled from 2697 to 2595 B.C.

Basic acupuncture theory lies within the ancient philosophy of Taoism. The Taoists believed that the Universe can be described by the dualistic concept of yin and yang. All matter is made of yin and yang, including every part of the human body. The concept of yin is described as that which is dark, cold, moist, yielding, negative in polarity, and feminine. The concept of yang is described as that which is warm, dry, dominant, positive in polarity, and masculine.
Although yin and yang are opposites in nature, it is their ability to interact and balance each other that creates a dynamic interplay that we call health. All diseases or conditions can be classified as either yin or yang in nature due to an imbalance of one or the other.
Chinese acupuncture theory maintains that there are twelve main meridians or energy channels that relate to the internal organs: lungs, large intestine, stomach, spleen, heart, the pericardium (the sac around the heart), known as the gate of life, small intestine, bladder, kidney, gall bladder, liver, and what is called the triple warmer, whose function is the assimilation and transportation of energy and the maintenance of body temperature. Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote its own natural healing ability. It is not a mystical theory of ancient Chinese, but a type of bioenergetics medicine which has been practiced and developed in Chinese medicine for more than 5000 years. Over this vast length of time, billions of people have been treated successfully.

Chi (pronounced “chee”) is an energy referred to as the ‘life force’ or ‘vital force’ which is present in all living creatures. Chi circulates through 14 major meridians, or energy channels, to all parts of the body. If the flow of Chi is impeded for any reason – by blockage, imbalance, or misdirection – the body’s health weakens in response to the shortage of vital energy.

By restoring the flow of Chi energy, the body can repair itself. To do this, the doctor will stimulate specific points along the meridians, called acupoints, with hair-fine acupuncture needles. This stimulation helps re-balance and encourage the stronger flow of Chi, which is necessary for the body to repair itself and also for the body to maintain itself.
