Frequently Asked Questions

Q: WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?

A: The traditions and techniques of acupuncture date back to the early fourth century and much the same philosophies and practices continue today. Acupuncture is based on the following major concepts:

  • The human body has fourteen principal channels or meridians of energy circulating around it passing through the head, torso, arms, internal organs, legs and feet in a continuous loop.
  • A subtle form of life’s vital energy known in Chinese as Qi (pronounced 'chee') circulates along these meridians interconnecting all parts and systems of the body bring vitality (life, energy) even to the remotest of cells.
  • Qi divides the living from the dead – without qi there can be no life. We can only experience true good health and well being when the flow of qi is not blocked or impeded in any way.
  • Pain, ill health and other bodily dysfunction is an indication that the flow of qi has become blocked, misdirected or in some way unbalanced.
  • Acupuncture is the stimulation of different points along the meridians, often where the fourteen channels of energy flow interconnect. These acupoints can be stimulated by several different methods including massage, with needles, with heat, with suction, with burning or a combination of these. By stimulating the acupoints the practitioner is able to remove the blockage, imbalance or impediment and this allows qi to flow smoothly again, thus restoring balance and wellness to the system, and permitting the organs to work together harmoniously again.
  • Once acupuncture has restored the flow of qi to the body, organs and mind and has reestablished harmony and balance, it will be possible for the body to start to self repair and heal itself.

Q: WHAT ARE THE MAIN OBJECTIVES OF ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT?

A: In Western terms, there are three main goals of acupuncture:

  • To relieve pain and any other symptoms
  • To strengthen and fortify the immune system.
  • To harmonize and balance the organs and systems and their functions between each other so that our bodies work in an integrated, interrelated way rather than as a disconnected and unrelated series of parts.

Q: WHAT BLOCKS THE FLOW OF QI?

 A: Qi can be blocked by both internal and external factors. For example, toxins in food and water, infections, poor nutrition, organ malfunction, sprains, strains and injuries can all impede the flow of qi. Likewise, stress, anxiety, worry, emotional upsets, as well as excess of cold, heat, wind or damp can also block the smooth flow of qi.
