A Chinese medical treatment based on the understanding that living bodies pulse and flow with an energy that is beyond the limited spectrum of the human eye similar to microwaves, or radio waves.
Further, ALL diseases of the body begin with a disruption of this energy field that if left uncorrected will manifest as an ailment of the physical body.
After thousands of years of research a modern acupuncturist understands and uses a complex map of this energy field and by stimulating specific points, he can alleviate stagnation, and realign this energy field which will very shortly manifest as a decrease in pain and restoration of function in the bodies tissues. Acupuncture is commonly used to control pain and to treat other conditions such as allergies, hypertension or addiction withdrawal. Acupuncture is one component of an overall program of Chinese medicine that is very similar to the modern wellness movement happening in America today.
