The aim of acupuncture treatments is to prevent or treat disease by puncturing specific points on the body with small needles to specific depths treating the cause of a disease. The desired selection of points will be specifically picked after an in depth diagnosis and examination are completed by a knowledgeable acupuncturist.Only after a comprehensive diagnosis and understanding of your individual disorder are achieved, can specific points be chosen. A successful acupuncturist will choose points not by your symptoms but by understanding your disease. The aim of Traditional Chinese Medicine is to determine and treat the underlying cause of disease through a number of different patterns. The patterns in TCM don't correspond to any specific Western disease but rather represent body's state at a specific time, exhibited through different symptoms. That's why different conditions can be caused by the same pattern as well as different patterns can exhibit the same symptoms. Acupuncture will balance the body by eliminating excess and tonifying deficiencies.
When explaining the fundamentals of how acupuncture works, it is like any other science , it gets more complicated and detailed once you start getting into the if’s and buts of it. In Chinese medicine, pain and disease is the result of a disharmony between various organ systems and acupuncture is one of the main ways to regain the body’s natural balance. In the West, pain relief is one of the most common and widely known application of acupuncture. The cause of pain in Chinese medicine is due to poor circulation of Qi or blood and phlegm accumulation which stagnates and creates a blockage in a specific area. This stagnant energy will cause different types of pain depending on what other pathogens or conditions are present. Acupuncture is able to help the body restore proper circulation in the specific area eliminating pain and restoring smooth circulation to balance the body.
