What Is Acupunсture?
Acupuncture definition is based on a holistic medical treatment which has evolved into an effective system for whole health and wellness. Alongside techniques like aromatherapy, acupuncture at Pulse Acupuncture promotes natural healing through the insertion of tiny needles that activate Qi energy throughout the body. This helps achieve balance within both the body and mind. The basis of all traditional Chinese acupuncture is energy. This energy is the force that engulfs every cell. All our cells and tissues conduct and transfer energy through protein molecules, giving us life. This energetic source flows throughout every aspect of our body, invigorating our organs and powering the processes that link them as well. This electromagnetic force directs every chemical and hormonal release.
In the human body, Qi manifests in several different ways. Qi is a kind of bioelectrical force that flows throughout the body, carried by an extensive network of 14 channels called “meridians”. These meridians are invisible to the naked eye, yet they have been mapped out over the course of thousands of years of observation and experimentation by TCM acupuncture physicians. As electrical energy flows from one place to the other, it encounters resistance that builds up from the channels it’s flowing through. When a metal needle which is an excellent conductor of electricity, inserted into an acupuncture point, a resistance is decreased promoting the flow of energy along that meridian. Since the meridian connects a whole series of tissues and organs, an acupuncture point on the leg or arm can regulate the energy through different organs. The meridian pathway flows to provide nourishment to every cell, organ, gland, muscle and tissue in the body. TCM acupuncture is painless, utilizing thin, hair-like needles that are placed at strategic energetic points to activate natural, self-healing abilities of the body. Acupuncture points along the affected meridians will correct the normal flow of Qi and will restore your health and balance.
