Acupuncture is the practice of inserting needles into the body to elicit stimulation designed to reduce all types of pain and disease.  It is an ancient medicinal art practiced in China for more than 2500 years and a part of traditional Chinese medicine as a remedy for insomnia, depression and anxiety and other kinds of mental and physical diseases. The basis of acupuncture is to balance the body’s “Chi” or “life energy” which not only gives but enhances as well the spiritual, emotional and physical balance of the individual.

Acupuncture applies several techniques to heal the body. There are techniques that even exclude the use of needles.  Traditional and electro acupuncture entails the use of needles.  Traditional acupuncture works by massaging the sites where the needles are inserted while electro-acupuncture is about using electrified needles in the skin.

For patients who are uneasy with needles, acupuncture offers needle-less techniques such as cupping therapy, moxibustion, ultrasonopuncture, soft laser therapy, T.E.N.S and acutron.  Except for moxibustion, these techniques are all fairly modern versions of acupuncture.

Poor chi and blood circulation can result in headaches, migraine and nausea and all other kinds of disorders.  During treatment, acupuncture needles are inserted in specific acupuncture points connected to networks called meridians.  These meridians in turn are connected to the major organs in the body.  The needles help improve blood circulation.  An enhanced blood flow throughout the body can result in sharper mental clarity, improved concentration, adequate satisfying sleep, positive happy feelings about life and healthy appetite.

Insomnia or lack of sleep, a result of extreme negative emotions can be treated with acupuncture.  The needles stimulate the release of beneficial chemicals in the brain, which makes the body feel calm, relaxed and light.  These types of sensations engender sleepiness and rest.

Anxiety and depression can manifest in various mental and physical diseases in people. Acupuncture to the ear is one the best treatments for these disorders.  The needles remove blockages in the meridians allowing the chi to flow unhindered again thus helping take away anxiety and depression.  This is how negative emotions are treated safely and effectively by acupuncture.
