Achieving Health Naturally
What is Acupuncture and how does it work?
Acupuncture is an alternative form of medical treatment for many types of ailments, pains and diseases. Chinese medicine began thousands of years ago, and is still being used successfully for many conditions. Acupuncture is comprised of 14 meridians or channels, 6 on each side of the body, and one on the midline of the front, and one on the midline of the back of the body. The channels are like rivers. When there is good health, the channels or rivers are flowing freely without any obstructions. When we have pain or disease, there is obstruction or blockages in these channels and rivers. With the use of very tiny solid filiform needles to open up the blockages, the sterile one-use only needles are placed a few millimeters under the skin. Once the blockage has been removed, the flow is restored to all the channels and rivers, thereby creating health and well being again.
