What is acupuncture???? No it’s not some guy sticking pins into your body just for the heck of it. It’s actually an ancient Chinese technique used for medicinal purposes. Acupuncture is based on a channel system (12 for the major organs), these channels are related to the body’s organs. This in turn; controls how we live. The channel theory is not a western scientific theory, it uses the yin and yang (Taoism), of how things are connected and yet still opposite. And diseases are considered a force which is blocked in the body. It’s a lot to take in I know….But my theory is this “If you believe you believe…..if you don’t, you don’t”. We can all agree that some things in life are unexplainable. So back to the topic at hand, let’s say you suffer from headaches a common way to treat this with acupuncture, would be to stimulate the hands between the thumb & the palm. This area is said to stimulate the head and face. I know it’s a bit different than western medicine, but remember acupuncture is well over 5000 years old and it has been proven effective for many health issues. So if you’re on a quest, for something different, remember to try acupuncture.
