Optimize Your Health with RN Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine that originated thousands of years ago. The key theory of acupuncture is based on the vital energy of the body, called Qi, that circulates through fourteen energy channels known as meridians. Twelve of these meridians are associated with different organ systems within the body. An imbalance within this system is how pain and disease can begin.
There are hundreds of acupuncture points on the body. Acupuncturists insert fine needles into specific points to restore balance and alleviate symptoms. These points are chosen based on each client’s individual assessment and presentation.
In 1996, acupuncture needles were reclassified from "experimental" to "medical device" by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The World Health Organization has listed over 25 diseases, symptoms or conditions for which acupuncture has been proven, through controlled clinical trials, to be an effective treatment. It is one of the best known of the alternative therapies.
