Acupuncture is known to be one of the most ancient medical treatments in the world for a large variety of illnesses. Otzi, the iceman, whose 5000-year-old mummy was found in the Alps several years ago, appeared to have the acupuncture meridians tattooed on his back that may have been treatment for arthritis. Egyptian mummies have been noted to have the acupuncture meridian points also indicated with tattoos.
Acupuncture uses extremely fine needles to balance the body’s organ systems and qi while increasing the circulation of blood and oxygen. Needles inserted at various points along the acupuncture meridians can treat many conditions from and including headaches and migraines to infertility and stress. Though no matter what the western diagnosis is we do a complete evaluation to come up with a treatment plan that best fits your pattern. In Chinese Medicine it’s important to look at the whole person to treat the root and not just treat the symptoms. For example migraines can have several patterns associated with them in terms of Chinese Medicine. Acupuncturists ask a lot of questions to ascertain what the most predominant pattern is in your case and then treat accordingly. It is important to constantly re-evaluate the treatment plan to ensure that it is working or at least moving in the right direction. Acupuncture can work well in the treatment of both acute and chronic conditions.
