How Acupuncture Works
Do you want to keep your good health? Do you want to feel even better? Acupuncture uses your own natural abilities to heal your body and give you optimum health. It is safe and effective because it uses your energy to heal you. You have the power within you to live with health and vitality. By redirecting, moving and invigorating your meridians, or energy channels, you experience balance. Balance leads to health. Dr. Allexi utilizes disposable filaments or fine needles, which are gently inserted into special intelligent points along your meridians. By using these smart acupuncture points, your body will regulate its own flow of energy naturally.
Acupuncture moves energy or Chi, pronounced Chee, that is stuck causing pain or illness. Treatment with Dr. Allexi is usually pain free or mildly uncomfortable for just a second or two. Some people may feel a momentary small and fleeting pinch. The nature of all points is different. For instance, some smart acupuncture points are meant to move energy to the face even though the point is located on the hand. Some acupuncture foot points pull energy down to the feet to alleviate headaches and some even speed the timing of labor in childbirth. Once filaments are placed many people fall asleep and wake up refreshed. Others rest and feel a sense of peace.
You might be wondering what Qi is? Qi is a vital energy that flows through all creatures big and small. It is a life force that invigorates our organs, glands, muscles and tissues. It is responsible for assisting the flow of our nervous system, blood and lymph. When Qi is stuck nothing works well. Stuck or impeded energy can contribute to pain and disease. In Chinese medicine we move energy with needles and occasionally with our hands to facilitate healing and recovery. When we use our hands the technique is called Tuina, pronounced twee nah. Sometimes we use herbs, vitamins, minerals and fats to assist in building or balancing energy in the body. Together acupuncture and nutritional supplementation go a long way in moving patients out of acute or even chronic illness and into a healthy, pain free lifestyle.
There are times that Dr. Allexi will also employ the use of Guasha technique or Chinese cupping. These techniques are a bit more intense and move energy deeply within tissues, often with great results. Both the Guasha technique and fire cupping work with soft tissue to move toxins and blood stagnation holding pain and dysfunction in tissues. Along with acupuncture, these techniques can be effective for difficult and persistent pain conditions.
There are so many uses for acupuncture. Many people come in to our office to relieve their pain, but some come in for other reasons. There are many issues that can be addressed by acupuncture from allergies to Bell’s Palsy to infertility to low back pain, acupuncture can often give relief or even resolution. Acupuncture helps people to live full lives. Dr. Allexi is here to help you make the changes that empower you to live a better, healthier life.
