Acupuncture is a medical system that has been used to diagnose, treat and prevent illness for over 2000 years. It is the placement of extremely fine, hair-thin needles at precise points on the body that affect the bio-energetic system allowing increased energy and blood flow throughout the body. Healthy energy and blood flow are necessary to nourish all the body systems. When healthy systems communicate effectively with each other throughout the body, optimal function and ease are the result.
Physical, mental and emotional trauma, poor diet, lifestyle, medications, hereditary conditions, environmental factors, and everyday life cause stress in our entire body effecting all the body systems. When your body becomes chronically stressed, function and ease can become malfunction and eventually disease.
Acupuncture promotes the body’s ability to heal itself by addressing the root cause of a problem versus just the obvious symptom. A simple way to think about this is to envision a plant that has not been given enough water. When the leaves turn brown it is a visible indication that something is wrong. You could address the symptom by applying green paint to cover up the brown - this is similar to what happens when we take medications to “cover up” a symptom. Or, you could cut off the brown leaves - this is what we do when our organs become diseased, we remove them. Unfortunately, painting and cutting off the plant’s leaves addresses the symptoms, but the root cause of the problem remains...the plant needs water! If we fail to address the root cause, the same symptoms or possibly even worse symptoms will inevitably occur.
Our body is no different and while it often makes sense to get relief from symptoms, especially when we are in pain, the root cause must be healed in order for true health to be restored. This prevents deeper, more serious problems. Acupuncture, in the context of holistic care, gets to the root of the problem.
