Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique of small tiny needles of gold, silver or stainless steel which are inserted on specific body points.
Acupuncture is a science of metaphysical energy which we can’t see but feel. This energy is known as "Qi" (Chi) in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). Acupuncture works on nature philosophy. The whole nature is made of five elements which are known as 'Panchmahabhute'. As a part of nature human body is also made of five elements. Every element has its own energy. Every organ of our body has these five energies & there is a specific pathway of this energy flow, known as meridians in TCM. When due to any reason such as external atmosphere, diet, emotions or any kind of accident, energy flow gets imbalanced ‘Dis-ease’ occurred. Energy may get excess or deficient and flow may get stagnated or diverted.
Worldwide, more people have been successfully treated with acupuncture than with all other systems combined. With research backing its efficacy, acupuncture is widely practiced in Asia, Soviet Union, and Europe. It has been used in the United States since 1970’s.
Acupuncture treatments can be given in conjunction with other therapies such as conventional Western medicine, physical therapy, chemotherapy, psychotherapy etc.
