Acupuncture is a widely know alternative medicine treatment which has been used in Chinese medicine for over 5000 years. 

What Is Acupuncture?

     Acupuncture literally means piercing and fine needles are inserted at specific acupoints on the body.  The stimulation of these points helps to redistribute the flow of energy in your body to restore health and well-being.  Acupuncturists don't just used needles but will sometimes use other instruments.  Tuning forks will be sometimes used on the same acupoints.

What's New and What's Good To Know?

 Just recently Acupuncture needles have been classified as Medical instruments.  This means the treatment is being truly recognized for it's medical value. 
     If you have an aversion to needles let me reassure you that you will not feel these at all because they are microfine.

     What is Acupuncture Used For?

     Acupuncture is used to treat a variety of health conditions ranging from pain relief to anesthetizing people for surgery.  Acupuncture treatment is also used preventatively to keep you healthy before you have any symptoms.

What Effects Does Acupuncture Have?

     Acumpuncture treatment does some of the same beneficial things to the body as Aromatherapy Essential Oils.  The benefits of needle stimulation of acupoints include but are not limited to:

  • Stimulating the Circulatory System
  • Stimulating the Digestive System
  • Has effects on the Heart and can regulate rhythm
  • Stimulating the Immune System
  • Aids in Regulating Hormones

Can Aromatherapy & Acupuncture be Used Together?

     Acupuncturists who understand the benefits of aromatherapy, and the healing properties of pure essential oils, are combining the two remedies for increased health and well-being.

     Essential oils are being used not just for Aromatherapy but on the acupuncture needles before insertion.  Dipping the acupuncture needles in essential oil greatly increases the health benefit of the acupuncture treatment. Puncturing the acupoints with a needle dipped into an essential oil remedy is called medicated needle acupuncture. It is part of Ayurvedic Aromatherapy treatment.

     If your Acupuncturist does not combine the two you can still use combination therapy by using essential oils at home. This will increase the health benefit of both treatments and speed relief and health.

     There are acupuncture remedies for Acne, Allergy, Arthritis, Colds, Constipation, Detox, Eczema, Headaches, Insomnia, Pain, PMS and Sciatica to name just a few.
