How can Acupuncture and Acupressure help?

Acupuncture is a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — that flows through the pathways or meridians in the body. By inserting acupuncture needles or applying pressure (acupressure) to specific points along these meridians, your energy flow will balance and normalize the body's innate healing mechanisms. Acupuncture for back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, etc. focuses on stimulating nerves, muscles and connective tissues which can boost your body's natural painkillers (endorphins). It also increases blood flow which decreases pain and can help to improve your immune system. Furthermore, acupuncture is also an effective treatment to cure other medical conditions such as chemotherapy nausea, vomiting, and post-operative dental pain. Many patients have also undergone acupuncture in Orange County to lose weight or to reduce wrinkles with cosmetic acupuncture.
