Acupuncture is a holistic system of healing, developed and refined in the Far East is one of the oldest systems of healing in the world. Acupuncture points are areas of designated electrical sensitivity located along twelve meridian lines, or channels of energy, in the human body. These channels govern the flow of energy throughout the body, connecting all major organs, and thus dictate our health. It is a form of art, combining Mind, Body and Spirit.
The basic premise of all Oriental medicine is that health is dependent on the body’s life energy, or “qi” (pronounced “chee”). As a holistic method, the principal aim of acupuncture is to restore equilibrium between a person’s physical, emotional and spiritual aspects. Chinese Medicines recognizes the interdependence of mind and body, and treats the person as a whole.
Your blood carries everything you need to live. Inside your blood is your food, oxygen, hormones, medication, and chemicals to stave off infection and promote healing. The proper movement and delivery of blood to where your body needs it is what enables optimal health and a long life. Acupuncture has been found to be very effective in promoting blood flow.
Acupuncture is the use of very fine needles, the width of a strand of hair, placed specifically into the meridian that pertains to the organ or system involved. Normally this process is painless. This stimulation helps restore the normal balance and flow of Qi, which facilitates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Because acupuncture needles are very thin and flexible, there is little or no discomfort when they are inserted. Once the needles are in, there is a sensation, often an electric or tingling feeling, but usually not pain. Many patients experience feelings of relaxation and well-being during a treatment; some even fall asleep. Dr. Wu’s treatment rooms are so soothing that it feels more like you’re having a spa treatment.
A typical treatment consists of a short evaluation of your symptoms, followed by 30-45 minutes of relaxation while the acupuncture needles are inserted and left to rest. Visits are by appointment only.
