The history of acupuncture is deeply rooted in China, dating back thousands of years; however, acupuncture can be traced back to many mummies found in India, South America and Europe, namely Otzi the Iceman, a 5,300-year-old frozen corpse found in a glacier on the border of Italy and Austria in 1991. According to scientists, Otzi used a form of acupuncture for osteoarthritis of his lumbar spine.
Acupuncture is based on universal life energy called "Chi" or "Qi," which is present in every living creature. This energy is said to circulate throughout the body along specific pathways that are called meridians, like water in a river corridor. As long as this energy flows freely throughout the meridians, health is maintained, but once the flow of energy is blocked, like a dam in a river, the system is disrupted and pain and illness occur.
Acupuncture works to unblock the Qi and restore normal functions by stimulating certain points on the meridians in order to free up the Qi. To diagnose and treat a patient, our practitioners will listen to your complaints, look at tongue, statute and complexion, feel up to 18 pulse positions in the wrists and palpate along the meridians, which are comprised of more than 365 acupuncture points. This valuable information along with any western medicine diagnoses and testing will allow our acupuncturist to ask questions and come up with a treatment plan.
Acupuncture needles are as thin as a strand of hair, thereby evoking little, if any, pain when inserted. Most people find themselves extremely relaxed, free of any pain or discomfort, while undergoing treatment, and many people fall asleep.
Patients utilize Chinese medicine and its many modalities for almost all conditions, including musculoskeletal, breathing and internal disorders, side effects of cancer treatment, anxiety depression, insomnia, women's health, stress, weight, pain and lifestyle management, to name a few.
The WHO (World Health Organisation) lists more than 50 conditions for which acupuncture research proves to be efficacious. Paediatrics, adults and elderly patients can take advantage of these many modalities with the help of our experienced Chinese medicine practitioners.
