What is the energy or Qi which flows in the meridians? Qi is body’s energy, vitality or “life force” – it’s what gives an organism an “aliveness.” It has yin and yang qualities and is an integral component of spiritual, mental/ emotional and physical being.
What is a meridian? A meridian is an invisible pathway for energy (Qi) flow/ travel which tends to be longitudinal in nature and lie between body landmarks or in channels/ crevices between muscles, bones and connective tissue. There are 3 yin and 3 yang paired meridians on each arm and leg, 2 longitudinal meridians on the anterior and posterior of the body, and 6 “extra” meridians, composed of points from the other 14 meridians.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles.
Where are the points? There are approximately 359 points which are situated on 14 meridians, and approximately 40 extra points which are not on meridians.
The points are located where the Meridians surface at the skin and are easily accessible by "needling.” A constant, steady and unimpeded circulation of Qi equals health, whereas blockage, deficient or excessive Qi will cause illness. Acupuncture can restore the balance and quality of Qi flow.
Safety The FDA approved acupuncture needles for use in 1996. The FDA requires that sterile, nontoxic needles be used and disposed of after use. Few complications have been reported to the FDA.
What does Acupuncture Treat? The World Health Organization and FDA have approved acupuncture to treat the following conditions: Allergies Hypertension Arthritis IBS Asthma Infertility Angina pectoris Insomnia Back pain Menopausal symptoms Bursitis Muscle spasms Chronic pain Nausea and vomit Constipation Neuralgia Diabetes Stress Endometriosis Smoking cessation Fibroids Sea Sickness Gynecological problems Weight control
Pain Management with Acupuncture
