What is Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese system of treating physical conditions through a method of stimulating the acupoints located throughout the body. The method involves the gentle insertion of very fine needles into specific acupressure points along the meridians of the body. In this way, the qi or energy is stimulated to influence the physiological, psychological, and emotional functions of the mind and body to become balanced.
Acupuncture is based on the theory that when the natural energy flow in the body is imbalanced, interrupted or weak, it can cause the body to experience certain illnesses. By using acupuncture the balanced flow of energy is restored or increased and the body is allowed to heal itself.

How Does it Work?
The foundation of acupuncture practice is based on scientific proof that the human body is actually made up of a complex bio-electrical system with energy that circulates along well-defined pathways, called meridians. Points along these meridians are connected to specific organs, systems, and structures of the body. If the natural flow of this energy circulation becomes disrupted in any way, the optimum function of the body is affected which results in pain or illness. Acupuncture is used to stimulated these points to balance the flow of energy that ultimately influences the health of the entire bodily system.
Acupuncturists have attained a high level of skill in placing extremely fine stainless steel needles into the skin with minimum discomfort or pain. Most patients experience only a very mild sensation when the needles are inserted. New needles are used for each patient which makes the treatment very safe with no risk from infection.
Acu Center would like to recommend an expert chiropractor in Palm Beach Gardens, Dr. Beth Kozak, who is one of Palm Beach County’s favorite and trusted chiropractors.
How Acupuntion be Effective where Other Treatments Have Failed?
Different systems of medicine have their own areas of greatest effectiveness. Acupuncture is considered an alternative or complementary form of treatment that often excels in areas where conventional treatment fails to result in a cure. Three of the most common acupuncture specialties are:
– Pain control
– Stress relief and other related disorders
– Chronic disease treatment
From extensive research in China as well as the western world, it has been proven that these three acupuncture specialties have measurable effects on endocrine physiology, the vascular system, the autonomic nervous system, as well as brain chemistry and a variety of neurotransmitters.
Whether you are suffering from unexplained pain or the symptoms of a disease, acupuncture is a holistic treatment practice that can help you deal with your health problems by regulating the smooth flow of energy and restoring balance to the mind and body.
