Acupuncture is a form of treatment with the principle that there are energetic pathways, or channels, throughout the body that influence associated internal organs and structures. Energy (Qi, pronounced "chee") from these pathways surfaces at various points on the body, called acupoints. Each of these acupoints serves as a tunnel, or access route, to the deeper circulatory channels within.
Extremely fine gauge needles are inserted at selected points, stimulating these points and thereby activating the body’s natural healing abilities. It is proven to be an effective, safe alternative and complement to medications or even surgery for a variety of conditions. Each point on a specific meridian has a specific function, and acupuncture prescription means selection of a group of points to treat a condition or disease, based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. We call that TCM acupuncture.
A TCM acupuncture practitioner has a sound knowledge of meridians and their interactions and knows the functions and indications of each point, in addition to contra-indications of them. For example LI-4 which is a commonly used acupoints for pain, is contra-indicated to use during pregnancy, but can be used to induce labour in case of delayed labour.
According to the principles of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), a person's health is determined by having a balanced flow of "Qi", the vital life force circulating throughout the body. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are the means of influencing this energy to induce a particular effect in body. In modern terms, acupuncture can affect the nervous and endocrine system.
