Benefits Of Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese

The core of this ancient Chinese medicine is the philosophy that Qi (pronounced “chee”), or life energy, flows throughout the body. Qi helps animate the body and protect it from pain and disease. A person’s health is influenced by the quality, quantity, and balance of Qi. There is a classical Chinese explanation that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up in others.

Acupuncture is the science of improving the flow of Qi through these meridians by needling the acupuncture points. The Acupuncturist’s needles unblock the obstructions at the dams and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture treatments may be able to help the body’s internal organs to correct imbalances in digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by the Acupuncturist's efforts can potentially stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and may be able to promote improved physical and emotional well-being. This can help facilitate the restoration of the flow of Qi – the vital life force that flows throughout the body.

Acupoint Injection Therapy

AIT herbs, Acupuncture Point Injection or Acupoint Injection Therapy (AIT) is an integrative therapy that blends the best of Chinese Medicine with conventional and homeopathic medicine. Employing this technique, AIT-certified Acupuncture Physicians inject natural therapeutic substances, such as homeopathic remedies or vitamins, into acupuncture points specific to your wellness needs as part of their Holistic Therapy. By stimulating powerful acupuncture points with proven natural substances, we can affect the body on a deeper level and promote a healing climate. AIT has been reported effective for the resolution of acute and chronic pain in the body, particularly in the shoulder, back, knee and neck, with past clients. Holistic Medicine often provides a wide range of alternative therapies beyond narrowly proscribed western techniques.

We also use AIT techniques with many of our weight loss protocols, Cosmetic Acupuncture programs, and even B-12 injections. Sometimes referred to as “biopuncture”, in order to use AIT as a therapy acupuncture physicians must complete additional didactic and clinical training beyond their traditional education. Additional certification in AIT must be earned in order to practice this technique.


Auricular therapy, also referred to as auriculotherapy or ear acupuncture, is a form of complementary medicine that involves stimulating specific points on the ear to address various health conditions. This practice is grounded in the idea that the ear serves as a microsystem reflecting the entire body, with distinct points corresponding to various organs and systems.

During auricular therapy sessions, practitioners may utilize tiny seeds called Vaccaria seeds, pressure, or electrical stimulation on these ear points to alleviate pain, reduce stress, and enhance overall well-being. Often used alongside treatments like acupuncture or massage, auricular therapy can assist with pain management, addiction cessation, anxiety, and digestive issues.

This therapy is thought to activate the body's innate healing mechanisms and restore harmony to its energy flow.

Moxibustion, a traditional Chinese therapy, involves burning dried mugwort to stimulate specific acupuncture points or areas of the body. This method, often used alongside acupuncture, aims to promote healing and alleviate various health issues by enhancing circulation and the flow of vital energy (i).

During a moxibustion session, heat is applied to the skin either directly with burning moxa or indirectly through a moxa stick held over acupuncture points. This stimulation is believed to restore balance, addressing conditions such as pain, digestive disorders, and respiratory issues. Moxibustion, considered safe when performed by a trained practitioner, offers therapeutic benefits and complements holistic health approaches.
