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.

What Can Acupuncture do For Me?
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at super specific points in the body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain in the body. More and more over time, it’s being used to promote overall wellness, and just generally improve the body, even including stress management.
Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as chi or qi (chee) — which they believed flowed through different pathways in the body. By inserting needles into specific points along these pathways, it is believed that your energy can be realigned.
These days, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. They take this ancient practice and form it around common day medical knowledge, giving it that much more impact and real effect. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body’s natural painkillers and naturally helps treat pain and other issues like inflammation, etc.
