What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an alternative
healing form associated with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Just
as Western medicine realizes the importance of blood flow through the
body, TCM realizes that the energy of the body must flow unhindered.
When this energy, called “qi,” (pronounced chee) is blocked, illnesses, pain and even
psychological dysfunctions result.
The pathways of this energy are
called “meridians,” and the acupuncture body points are usually located
along these meridians. The practice of acupuncture involves stimulating
the body points along the meridians using fine, stainless steel needles
to unblock the flow of qi to promote self-healing of the body.
An acupuncturist uses sterile,
ultra thin, stainless steel needles to stimulate the qi; this is the
main technique of acupuncture. In the video below, an acupuncturist
describes not only the needles, but also two other common techniques
used by acupuncturists to unblock the qi.
