Acupuncture is a natural method of treatment for a broad range of conditions, including pain and general health. Acupuncture works by restoring the body’s natural energy flow or “Qi” (pronounced “chee”). The energy flow is stimulated by accessing meridians and points running throughout the body in specific patterns that treat specific conditions. This may be done through acupuncture or acupressure. Acupuncture is the use of fine, sterile needles that go into the skin at a superficial depth and acupressure is the use finger pressure.
Acupuncture is very useful for pain conditions and releasing tension in the muscles. Many people find relief from arthritis and can often cope while waiting for or even delay hip and knee replacements by using acupuncture. It helps with migraines, headaches, sciatica and pain problems of all types.
Acupuncture has been used as a primary form of Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries and has the ability to address any health condition. At BSCM we have found great success using acupuncture with conditions such as anxiety, depression and weight loss which are all major contributors to pain and pain syndromes. Sinus problems, allergies and asthma respond very well in addition to many other conditions.
