Based simply on appearance, acupuncture can seem counter intuitive for healing. However, it is a very method for balancing the body’s energy systems and promoting natural healing. It is well documented that the body has tremendous recuperative powers when the immune system is functioning properly. When the immune system is not functioning properly, then disease usually takes hold.
- Acupuncture is based upon the principle understanding that a life-force energy, called Qi (pronounced chee) flows through the body, protecting it from illness and pain.
- Qi flows along pathways that run somewhat like rivers throughout the body.
- The quantity and balance of Qi is what determines how healthy a person is.
We know that Qi flows through the body like a river, but sometimes it gets disrupted. It can be restricted by forces that injure the body. Some of these potential forces that block Qi are:
- Lack of exercise
- Poor diet
- Chronic inactivity
- Physical trauma
- Emotional trauma
When the body is normally healthy disruptions in the flow of Qi are temporary and the body will continue to heal itself. However, if the disruption is prolonged or if the body has been weakened by surgery, injury, or emotional stress; then it becomes nearly impossible for the body to heal itself. A skilled acupuncturist can determine where the disruptions and imbalances of Qi are in the body.
