Does current research disprove the efficacy of acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one of the many facets of Eastern Medicine that utilizes thin needles to stimulate certain points on our bodies. These points lie on meridians (also termed, “channels”) that traverse through organ systems and muscles internally and on the surface of our skin externally. Simply explains, the Qi (loosely translated as “energy”) and blood flow within these channels greatly contribute to our health – either giving us vibrance and good health with optimum flow in proper direction or ill health with impeded flow due to decreased energy or stagnation. Therapy with acupuncture and other modalities correct improper flow within the channels to relieve pain of excess origin, herbal formulas are the basis of treatment for conditions of deficiency. Pain or any other symptoms resulting from a deficiency root cause, conditions of elderly patients, or chronic conditions that have taken a toll on the body for a long period of time require herbal formulas to restore functionality.
