Acupuncture is one of the oldest traditional Chinese medicines, in use for thousands of years
Our board certified acupuncturists determine each individual patient’s needs and then creates a customized plan, while being mindful of where Western medicine would be useful as well
Getting to the root of your symptoms
Each of the acupuncture points act as a gate—sending energetic information electromagnetically via the fascia deep into the body. Explore some of the ways acupuncture works below:
Offering a small electrical prompt to the body to restore homeostasis & balance.
Releasing areas of blocked Qi which stimulates organ function & promotes health.
Promoting circulation in the body improves function where needed.
Acting as a natural analgesic, acupuncture interrupts pain signaling.
BALANCES BODY CHEMISTRY
Influencing the body’s biochemical responses via the nervous system.
Reducing proinflammatory markers, or proteins, in the body
Chinese medicine is energy medicine
The term energy medicine refers to the wide range of healing modalities used to diagnose and treat illness by manipulating the energy—the vital life force referred to as “qi” in traditional Chinese medicine—that pulses through the cells of our bodies. As Jill Blakeway explains in her book Energy Medicine, acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of energy healing and at Yinova we practice it in a thoroughly modern way.
