What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one of the world’s oldest known healing modalities according to the National Institute of Health (NIH). Contrary to popular Western belief, acupuncture is not just a system for inserting fine needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points to alleviate pain, it is a complete medical protocol focused on correcting imbalances of energy (Qi), and stimulates certain nerve endings of the body and can relieve a wide variety of health conditions. Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture has been used traditionally to prevent, diagnose and treat disease, as well as to improve general health.
In the midst of the opioid crisis, acupuncture has been growing in popularity in the United States, and has gained support from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The study shows that medical doctors refer their patients to acupuncturists more than any other “alternative” care provider, and many medical doctors believe acupuncture to be efficacious and of value.
Electro-Acupuncture (EAC) is the application of electrical micro-current to acu-points on a patient. Stimulation increases levels of analgesia, promotes tissue repair and healing, and promotes regeneration of nerve fibers in situations where cell bodies of damaged nerves are still vital. This process creates a pulsating sensation that is not painful to patient.
How Does It Work?
Traditional Chinese medicine explains that health is the result of a harmonious balance of the complementary extremes of "yin" and "yang" of the life force known as "qi," pronounced "chi." Illness is said to be the consequence of an imbalance of the forces.
Qi is said to flow through meridians, or pathways, in the human body. These meridiens and energy flows are accessible through 350 acupuncture points in the body. Inserting needles into these points with appropriate combinations is said to bring the energy flow back into proper balance.

What Conditions Can Be Treated?
Can Acupuncture Ease Stress and Depression? YES!
Studies Prove: The efficacy of acupuncture as a treatment for depression & anxiety. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) states that “evidence for the use of acupuncture to treat anxiety disorders is becoming stronger.”
Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that health is dependent on Qi (energy) – which, when in good health, moves in a smooth and balanced way through a chain of fourteen main channels (Jing Luo in Chinese) mapped out throughout the body.
Stress, anger, or any intense emotion acts like a traffic jam, blocking the free flow of energy (Qi) in the body, and causing pain, tightness, and often leading to headaches. By inserting needles into the acupuncture points, which lie at specific predetermined anatomical locations on these channels, we stimulate body’s energy (Qi) to start the healing process and assist it to restore its natural balance.
Acupuncture points can help energy flow smoothly, and alleviate not only the symptoms of stress and anxiety, but the stress and anxiety itself.
