One of the world’s oldest health disciplines, Acupuncture is over 4,000 years old. Originating in China, acupuncture later spread to neighboring countries throughout Asia. Acupuncture is achieving great popularity worldwide and is experiencing explosive growth.
Acupuncture treatments are implemented to restore and improve the flow of energy in the body. The World Health Organization (WHO) has endorsed acupuncture as an effective form of treatment for a wide range of conditions including pain syndromes, asthma, allergies, digestive problems, hormonal imbalances and infertility. Acupuncture has been especially effective in treating addictions, including smoking and food addictions.
While terms like “Qi” and “Shen” are foreign to our Western culture, acupuncture actually affects re-flow of electromagnetic energy. Today, we have instruments that can measure and map this energy. Electro-meridian Imaging (EMI) is used to measure the energy levels that acupuncture channels allowing an acupuncture practitioner to reliably determine the best acupuncture points to treat an individual patient.
