Acupuncture treats health conditions by stimulating "ACU points"found at specific locations on the surface of the body. Acupune- curisists stimulate the acu-points by inserting very thin needles through the skin to produce physiological effects. Other methods are also used to stimulate acu-points, such as heat or finger-pressure.
Stimulation of the appropriate acu-points through acupuncture treatments helps to restore sufficient, continuous, and even flow of Qi and other nutrients throughout the body thereby restoring health and balance to the body. While, at same time relieving pain and other symptoms.
The acupuncturist uses a sophisticated and complex system of diagnostic methods chat take into consideration the person as a whole, discerning the body's pattern of disharmony, rather ,chan isolated symptoms. The aim is not only to eliminate or alleviate symptoms,but more importantly, to treat the underlying cause, increase the ability to function, and improve the quality of life.
