What is Acupuncture and what can it do for you?
Acupuncture — which is one branch of Chinese Medicine — is thousands of years old. It based on the belief that everyone has an inherent capacity to heal from injury, to regain health after illness, and to maintain a high level of functioning. Acupuncture aims to restore your inherent capacity for self-healing by nurturing the strengths that already exist and bolstering the weaknesses that may have developed over time.
Acupuncture achieves this in part by removing any blocks that may be getting in the way of your healing. A block may result from improper diet or lifestyle habits, residual effects from past surgeries or illnesses, side-effects from medications, or other causes. Acupuncture is powerful because it works with your natural capacity for healing, and sometimes great shifts can be elicited with only a few needles. With these simple techniques acupuncture is capable of alleviating pain in many forms and restoring optimal functioning to all parts of the body.
Acupuncture may be used successfully both as an adjunct to western medical treatments and on it’s own. While it is well-known to relieve a wide variety of symptoms, its full potential is much greater. Once physical pain and other symptoms are dealt with, many patients have more energy and motivation to pursue the things in life that matter most to them. Through the treatments clients gain a clarity that allows them to move towards a life that is more fulfilling and gratifying. For many this is the highest level of health. The treatments just happen to be good for the knee pain along the way!
