How Acupuncture Works

With origins that trace back over 2,800 years ago, acupuncture is an essential aspect of traditional Chinese medicine. Its principle is based on activating a patient’s life force – referred to as Qi and pronounced as “chee”. Chinese acupuncture therapists believe your life force – or Qi – travels through 2000 meridians (passageways) in your body.

By inserting very thin needles in 361 strategic acupoints on your body, your Qi is activated, which helps to improve the flow of Qi and balance out your life force. A non-surgical and painless procedure, acupuncture is seen as a means of jump-starting your nervous system so that your body releases chemicals that can reduce pain.

For some Freehold, NJ patients, acupuncture is the best method for reducing pain, improving their sleep, reducing stress, and helping improve their mental health and overall well-being. Seen as an alternative approach to reducing chronic pain, acupuncture can be used to treat various joint, muscle, and fatigue ailments and injuries.

Acupuncture is Safe & Poses Minimal Risks

In some cases, our acupuncture practitioners may replace the stainless-steel needles with other acupuncture solutions like placing a heat source, applying pressure, or using suctioning or cupping instead of the stainless-steel needles.
