Acupuncture is one of the Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment method. It is based on the TCM theory that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body. Disruptions in the flow are believed to cause disease.
Acupuncture is correcting imbalances of flow by stimulating specific points on the energy channels (meridians).
Acupuncturist at our Mississauga acupuncture clinic use very thin needles inserted into these specific points to correct the imbalance of Qi.
There have been good results from studies looking at acupuncture for treating many conditions, including different kinds of pain, infertility, anxiety and stress, allergies and much more.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is believed that there is a vital energy ‘Qi’ flows in channels (meridians) throughout the body and over its surfaces.
If one of the meridians has an obstruction, then Qi cannot work and flow properly. If Qi cannot work and flow well, or if Qi is forced to change to the opposite flow direction, you will became sick with the unbalance of the body.
There are the specific points called acupuncture points. Acupuncture makes the Qi flow well by inserting needles at these specific points. The goal of the acupuncture is to restore Qi’s smooth flow. As a result, the body retains its balance and you will be in good health.
Acupuncture is quite safe. In Canada, sterile single-use disposable needles must be used to prevent infection. The treatment site should be swabbed with alcohol or another disinfectant before needles are inserted.
