Traditional Chinese medicine explains that health is the result of a harmonious balance of the complementary extremes of “yin” and “yang” of the life force known as “qi,” pronounced “chi.” Illness is said to be the consequence of an imbalance of the forces. Qi is said to flow through meridians, or pathways, in the human body. These meridians and energy flows are accessible through 350 acupuncture points in the body. Inserting needles into these points with appropriate combinations is said to bring the energy flow back into proper balance. Some experts have used neuroscience to explain acupuncture.

Why is acupuncture important?
There are many health benefits to acupuncture, which is why we offer this service at Power Health & Wellness. First & foremost is pain; Acupuncture is said to alleviate pain in specific areas of the body like the lower back for example. If you are constantly in pain it may be time to try something new outside of the usual pain remedies you are constantly doing. Power Health & Wellness offers acupuncture because we trust in the results it can give you.
Does Acupuncture hurt?
We know, acupuncture sounds extremely scary & painful, especially if someone has a fear of needles. However, contrary to its looks, acupuncture (when done correctly) does not yield mass amounts of pain when it is being done. You may feel a slight pinch or sting every now and then but it is far from what we would consider a painful procedure. If you have gotten acupuncture done in the past & had a bad experience it is possible you may have had someone who was inexperienced with how the procedure should work.
What Acupuncture can do for you
Acupuncture points are believed to stimulate the central nervous system. This, in turn, releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These biochemical changes may stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.
Studies have shown that acupuncture is an effective treatment alone or in combination with conventional therapies to treat the following:
- Nausea caused by surgical anesthesia and cancer chemotherapy
- Dental pain after surgery
- Menstrual cramps
- Tennis elbow
