Acupuncture

Acupuncture and traditionnal chinese medicine

Acupuncture is the most acknowledged and used discipline of Chinese traditional medicine in the Western world. Similarly to pharmacopea, dietetics, tuina and Qi Gong, acupuncture promotes health and the relief of pain.

Chinese traditional medicine approaches a patient’s health condition by considering its relation with the circulation of the Qi through the meridian network. The insertion of fine needles into specific parts of the body will have an effect upon that circulation, causing a reaction on an organ, on an area or on a function of the organism. To ensure maximal beneficial body reaction, the acupuncturist will choose specific points and stimulation techniques while taking into account the health status of the patient as a whole. Therefore, the acupuncturist considers the reason for consultation as well as the patient’s life experience, his daily habits and environment.

 

Acupuncture and occidental medicine

Acupuncture is finding it way in the Western world because of its analysis and keen observation of humans as whole beings and the environment they live in. To this day, the most studied benefit of acupuncture is the relief of pain. Its sedative, calming and relaxing effects are best known because of its interaction with the modulation of the cerebral activity. Acupuncture also influence the balance between the endocrinian, immune and nervous systems. Finally, acupuncture helps promote the body’s natural healing mechanisms by increasing local circulation and tissue regeneration.
