How Does Acupuncture Work?

  • Needle insertion stimulates the endorphins, which are the body's natural pain relievers. Some points on the body shows a definite connection to the nervous system. Very fine, sterile and single-used needles are used, that are about the width of a hair, so when inserted it is virtually painless.

  • Basically, acupuncture is a way to stimulate the body's nerves, muscles, and connective tissue in order to help boost your natural healing agents to combat disease.

  • The needles are placed in specific acupuncture points to assist in rebalancing the organs in the body and encouraging the circulation of Qi (energy) and Blood.

 

When you look through quantum glasses, you can see your energetic existence & network. We have openings at the surface of our bodies like windows & doors communicating with the energy in the environment. That is the acupuncture points. By stimulating the points you can regulate the energy loss. You balance the nature of it and you unblock the energy channels. You can supplement the energy using the natural energy of the environment. Acupuncture improves the flow of oxygen (Qi), nutrients (Ying Qi) & blood (Xue) thought the blood vessels system to nourish every cells of your body. Acupuncture treats the number one cause of diseases which is blood stagnation, meaning impaired blood flow which often results in experiencing pain or other symptoms. Acupuncture causes your blood vessels to dilate and increases blood flow.

Cupping

Cupping is a great therapy to help with muscles pain, cough, asthma or common cold, pain in the lower back or shoulders, headache, gastrointestinal disorders such as stomachache or abdominal pain, hypertension and much more.

Cupping works the opposite way of a massage, rather than applying pressure to the muscles, the suction causes negative pressure and pulls the muscles and the fascia ‘up’ and ‘out’. These cups allow the tissues to release any tightness, to break up and drain stagnation while increasing blood & lymph flow to skin & muscles in ways not possible using compression. The negative pressure causes marking on the skin, which are not bruises, indicating that the treatment has been successful in drawing out harmful pathogens and toxins.

Moxa

Moxa (Moxibustion) is a type of heat therapy applied to acupuncture points on the body. It is especially useful in strengthening the immune system, treating pain and promoting gynaecological health. It prevents disease, leads to a long healthy life and maintains homeostasis.

Guasha

Guasha is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that uses a jade tool to 'brush' the skin to facilitate the circulation of blood. It is particularly good to treat and prevent the common cold, flu, bronchitis, asthma, and pain (acute and chronic). It is also used to detoxify the body, and fevers, as the brushing brings the excess heat and toxins to the surface of the body to be released.
