Using incredibly fine, single use, sterile needles to stimulate precise points on the body, acupuncture can regulate all of the body’s interconnected systems and promote natural healing and pain relief. Recognized as safe and effective medical treatment by the World Health Organization and the American National Institute of Health, acupuncture can treat pain, resolve illness, restore good health, and facilitate optimal wellbeing.
Traditional Chinese medicine, has, over many centuries, mapped out a sophisticated network of meridians or channel pathways and studied the interrelationships between these channels and the corresponding physical structures and functions. Rather than being viewed as discrete pathways, these channels can be seen to incorporate various structures and functions. This is because, in Chinese medical theory, form and function are not viewed as being separate or distinct from each other. Modern computer imaging has revealed dynamic activity occurring in various regions and structures of the brain and body with the insertion of acupuncture needles into specific points on the body. This modern research has also shown that stimulating certain acupuncture points can cause an increase in the body’s natural endorphins and simultaneously activate the immune and endocrine system.
With the development of quantum physics, Western scientists have been able to scientifically prove that the body is not just dense physical matter, but rather a dynamic energetic field. This energy can be viewed simply as that which propels function and forms matter. The great physicist Albert Einstein stated: “Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.” It may be worth noting that when Einstein said, “we have all been wrong” he was referring to the Western scientific community at that time. This concept of matter-energy or all matter actually being condensed energy has existed within Eastern philosophies and medicine for millennia. In this regard, there can be no separation between matter/form and energy/function. Any holistic form of healing must consider and address both. While the roots of Chinese medicine go back thousands of years, it continues to be a living system of medicine that is refined and evolves in the light of continued research and clinical experience.
