Modern science has discovered that inserting the fine needles at acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system and releases chemicals such as endorphins to alleviate pain. However, acupuncture is much more than just pain reduction or pain management. Acupuncture re-energizes, it boosts the immune system, it revitalizes the nervous system, restores muscle tone, rebalances hormone levels and stimulates the production of anti-bodies. It supports the digestive system so that your body fully absorbs the nutrients from food and discharges what it does not need, and ensures that the internal organs are operating efficiently. Basically, it gets your body functioning optimally, as it was designed to do.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient holistic system made up of many complementary components. These include Acupuncture, Chinese herbal remedies, Tui Na Massage, Moxibustion, TaiQi, Qigong and Chinese nutrition principles. Its fundamental principle is that the body should be in balance and is based on the concept that energy flows through invisible pathways or meridians. Blocked pathways lead to illnesses and physical and emotional disorders. Chinese herbs are an essential part of TCM and are often used with acupuncture to heal chronic problems.
