Acupuncture Therapy

What is acupuncture?


The Chinese technique of acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world. The philosophy of energy medicine holds that the basis of good health is the harmonious balance of chi (pronounced “chee”), which regulates spiritual, emotional, mental and physical balance. Acupuncturists believe that imbalances in chi are at the root of diseases and that acupuncture helps to restore proper energy flow along pathways, called meridians. Restoring normal energy flow can consequently relieve pain or treat disease.

Although it has been practiced for over 5,000 years, it only has been within the past several decades that acupuncture has grown in popularity in the United States. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration estimates that Americans make as many as 12 million visit per year to acupuncturists.

During your acupuncture visit

During an acupuncture treatment, very thin needles are painlessly inserted through the surface layers of the skin to support proper flow of energy along the meridians. The course and length of acupuncture therapy at the Center for Integrative Medicine depends on your condition. Your practitioner will recommend a plan that works best for you.
