I have been an Acupuncturist for over 15 years now and find that each day brings
new wonder in how Acupuncture helps to promote health and a feeling of well being.
This medical system, which is has been in existence for well over 2000 years, both
helps maintain good health and makes better many health problems that have not
responded well to what is referred to as Western Medicine.
The only side effects reported are feelings of well being or just a feeling of
being very very relaxed after treatment.
The key to Acupuncture is Chi, which is often referred to as energy, sometimes even
as life force.
Whatever name you use when balanced Chi indicate good health and vitality.
The Chi flows through pathways, meridians. With the use of needles or moxa (heat)
we improve the flow, balance, quality, and volume of Chi. Health then improves as
the healing cycle restarts. The potential of the patient can be restored.
Acupuncture is a complementary system of medicine and not an alternative system.
I have found that Doctors are in the main supportive of Acupuncture and the British
Acupuncture Council is supportive of Western Medicine.
