Acupuncture Therapy and Treatment In Woodbridge, Ontario
Acupuncture is a healing techniques that originated in China over 2500 years ago.When first developed, the practice was based on the idea that the human body is made up of many channels, called meridians. When the energy flow (Qi) through the body is optimal, the body is at optimal health. In contrast, obstructed flow was thought to be indicative of poor health and predisposition to disease. In effort to restore optimal energy flow, the Chinese developed a treatment technique which today is known as acupuncture, and involves highly precise insertion of thin needles into the skin.
Although the idea of energy flow remains controversial, over the last decade, acupuncture as a healing technique has began to gain acceptance by Western medical professionals. This is primarily because recent scientific evidence has been demonstrating success in treating various medical conditions with acupuncture. Modern medical practitioners and scientists explain that the practice of needling stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals within the muscles, spine and the brain which then trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which ultimately improve body function and alter pain perception.
