What is Acupuncture in Orland Park, IL?
Acupuncture was first developed by the Chinese over 5000 years ago. Today it is known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). At Anchored in Health we use very thin, single-use, sterile needles. Which promotes the body’s natural healing response and circulation. In addition to supporting the function of each organ system. Above all acupuncture is a time-tested holistic treatment to restore balance to the body.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
Qi (pronounced “Chee”) is the central principle of TCM. To clarify it is considered the ‘life force’ or ‘energy flow’.
Qi and blood are carried along meridians to provide nourishment throughout the body. We can influence Qi at certain points along those meridians. Especially where nerve endings and blood vessels become more superficial.
Qi and blood can become stagnant causing pain, discomfort, and illness to arise. Acupuncture allows Qi to freely flow. As a result, it brings the body back in balance.
An acupuncturist will activate your body’s immune and nervous systems. Allowing for inflammation to decrease. Endorphins are also released to decrease pain.
Acupuncture is a scientifically proven treatment to help treat a variety of symptoms and also conditions. For instance pain, seasonal allergies, digestive disturbances, hormonal imbalances, and insomnia.
