History of Acupuncture


Acupuncture has one of the richest histories in the world of healing and healthcare. The traditional Chinese medical viewpoint is that acupuncture serves to balance yin and yang energies, which allows chi to flow properly. This flow helps to maintain or bring health to the patient’s body and mind.

The principles we use with our Cary acupuncture have existed for over 5,000 years. The treatment is rooted in the concept of chi. Just as water flows through a river, chi flows through your body in channels referred to as meridians. Similarly, a large rock may divert or completely block the flow of water, causing a buildup of stagnant water.

Untreated by a specialist, these blockages can lead to harmful imbalances and disease. Cary acupuncture is administered by inserting extremely fine needles into exact locations on the skin, thereby clearing blockages and allowing your chi to flow which in turn restores health and balance to your body. Acupuncture occupies a central place in our chiropractic practice, just as it has in China and other Asian countries for centuries. The strategic employment of acupuncture to alleviate and prevent pain has spread to occupations as various as physicians, dentists, and chiropractors.
