Acupuncture & Dry Needling
Article by John Miller
Acupuncture and Dry Needling are useful modalities to provide pain relief and assist injury rehabilitation.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture originated in China over 5000 years ago. It's based on the belief that health is determined by a balanced flow of chi, the vital life energy present in all living organisms.
According to acupuncture theory, chi circulates in the body along twelve major pathways, called meridians, each linked to specific internal organs and organ systems.
By inserting very fine, sterile single-use needles at specific points along the meridians, your acupuncturist can redirect and reposition the flow of energy (chi) for the purpose of relieving tension, stress, and pain.
The uninterrupted and balanced flow of energy along these meridians contributes to one's overall health. However, blockages and imbalances result in pain and illness.
