Acupuncture is an effective form of health care that has evolved into a complete and holistic medical System. Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have used this noninvasive medical system to diagnose and help millions of people get well and stay health. An acupuncturist will place fine, sterile, needles at specific acupoints on the body. This activates the body’s Qi (pronounced “chee”) and promotes natural healing by enhancing recuperative power, immunity and physical and emotional health. It can also improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems.

Cupping is a therapy designed to stimulate the flow of blood and Qi within the superficial muscle layers. It is used for many ailments including sore muscles, tension, neck pain and the common cold. In this therapy, your acupuncturist will place small glass or ceramic “cups” over specific areas on your body. a vacuum is created under the cup using heat or suction. They may be moved over an affected area or left in place. You may leave the office looking as though a large octopus gave you a big hug. There is no need for alarm. The slight redness will quickly dissipate.

Moxibustion is a treatment that uses an herb called mugwort. It may be burned on the handle of the needle, above the skin, on salt or on a slice of ginger. This is used to “warm: acupuncture points or areas in order to quicken the healing process.

What exactly does ‘Constitutional’ acupuncture mean? The main idea is that each person has a specific constitution, which determines the body’s inherent strengths and weaknesses. The acupuncturist tailors his treatment to the constitutional category that the patient falls under. Once the acupuncturist knows the constitution, he also knows the patterns of symptoms for that constitution, and to which treatment the patient will respond best. This makes the treatment pre-set and simple.

Rather than having to deal with thousands of different diseases, the constitutional acupuncturist can cure all kinds of illness with one combination of treatment, diet, and herbs. This is possible because each constitution has weaknesses in different, specific sections of the natnun circuit. Though a multitude of diseases could come out of those weak points, a healthy natnun circuit can effectively combat them. The old saying, that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, holds true. Therefore, it is important to find a constitutional acupuncturist who can find and restore the weakest link in the 14 meridian system. The result will be a whole body system that is healthier, stronger and more efficient.
