What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is recognized as a form of alternative medicine that works to treat symptoms and ailments by stimulating specific points throughout the body. These points are thought to correspond with the body’s qi, which traditional Chinese culture defines as the “energy of life.” Very fine needles are placed superficially throughout the body, working to balance the body’s qi. In addition to symptom relief and cosmetic benefits, acupuncture patients often describe feeling invigorated and revitalized following a treatment session.*
Acupuncture is best known for its therapeutic advantages. Historically, the treatment has been used specifically to treat pain caused by injuries and degenerative diseases, as well as headaches, anxiety, depression and neurological conditions like multiple sclerosis. Even patients who are not ill or experiencing symptoms can benefit from the therapeutic advantages of acupuncture. Many believe the treatment can heighten the body’s natural immunity and ability to fight disease.*
The benefits of this treatment goes beyond health. The body’s skin and appearance tend to reflect the health of the inside. Often, blemishes, acne, dull skin and wrinkles are caused by stress, anxiety and a weakened immune system. When these underlying conditions are addressed by acupuncture, the skin may begin to appear younger, more even-toned and even “glowing.”*
*Results vary in each individual.
