Why does acupuncture work: Leading PA expert weighs in on the benefits of acupuncture

One of the oldest forms of medicine currently practiced in the world today. Acupuncture is the placement of needles slightly beneath the skin with the intention of re-directing life energy or Qi. The basic tenet of Chinese medicine is that your personal life energy or Qi travels along “meridians” or channels in your body and when that flow is interrupted or the pathway is changed, disease or pain may result. Acupuncture treatment seeks to restore the natural balance in your Qi and thus restore balance to the part of the body that has been affected.

Acupuncture is most commonly used to heal chronic pain of the joints or muscles, headaches, and systemic illnesses of the body. It has also been used to help with weight loss and weight management, recovery from addictions, and may other difficulties. If you have a medical or personal issue and cannot seem to find help, call us to find out if acupuncture is for you.
