Acupuncture, or gan zhen ("dry needling"), is one of the oldest and most commonly used therapies in the modern world. It provides exceptional relief from pain, mental stress, and many symptoms and chronic conditions linked to the immune system and inflammation. In many cases, clients are able to create a pain management, stress management, or allergy relief program with acupuncture therapy to treat symptoms and conditions that drugs or surgery alone has not been able to completely alleviate.
Acupuncture Therapy at ATOSC involves the use of a blend between traditional and modern acupuncture methods and techniques. Traditional acupuncture includes the use of filiform needling, moxibustion, massage, and cupping to balance the flow of qi (life-force), xue (blood), jing (essence), and jin-ye (body fluids). In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), these are the basic vital substances that maintain normal vital activity of the human body.
Modern acupuncture involves using only the available medical science on filfiorm needling to treat symptoms and conditions. It operates from within the limits of objective cause and effect sequences that can be used to identify the benefits of acupuncture in relation to neuroanatomical structures and biochemical processes. Some evidence has shown that using acupuncture in this way is effective for a wide variety of conditions and Western-defined diseases, namely those associated with pain and inflammation.
Recent research suggests that the pain-relieving effects caused by needling acupuncture points may be initiated through a series of reactions that in turn release biochemicals that block pain and activate the immune system. Evidence proposes that this activation of the immune system may explain not only the mechanism behind acupuncture's pain-reducing effects, but also its wide diverse therapeutic effects in regulating stress and other inflammatory conditions and chronic disorders now linked to inflammation. By activating the immune system and triggering an inflammatory response, acupuncture may be used to help improve the body’s natural response and adaptation to mental-emotional and physical stress, harmful pathogenic micro-organisms, and cellular waste, while also reducing pain and other related symptoms.
