What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a time-honored healing art that has captivated the world with its unique blend of tradition and science. Rooted in ancient Chinese medicine, this holistic practice involves the skillful insertion of ultra-thin needles into specific points on the body to harmonize the flow of vital energy, or Qi. In doing so, acupuncture not only alleviates physical discomfort but also seeks to restore balance and harmony to one’s overall well-being.

By bridging the gap between ancient wisdom and modern research, acupuncture offers a remarkable journey towards healing, inviting individuals to experience the profound synergy between mind, body, and spirit.

A Typical Session

In an acupuncture session, a therapist will conduct a short consultation to learn about client’s health as well as more about the issue a client needs help with. Acupuncturists often feel the pulse and may want to look at your tongue in order to decide the best course of treatment.

Once the consultation has been carried a client will lie down on the therapy couch and very thin needles are gently placed at specific points on your body. During a session, you can expect a calm and holistic approach that’s all about finding harmony in your body and mind.

You can also expect your therapist to use an infrared heating lamp or the use of moxa. Both are a valuable adjunct to enhance the overall experience. The gentle warmth from the lamp or moxa not only soothes but also serves to relax and prepare the targeted acupuncture points. This heat helps to dilate blood vessels, improving circulation and allowing for a more effective flow of Qi, the vital energy in traditional Chinese medicine. As a complementary tools, the heating lamp and moxa can maximize the benefits of acupuncture, creating a harmonious and deeply rejuvenating therapeutic experience.
