| ACUPUNCTURE stimulates specific points on the body along meridians, to increase blood flow and oxygenate areas of the body that are in a state of disease and imbalance. In the treatment of trauma, acupuncture strengthens and supports the muscles to accelerate recovery, ease pain and help to regain mobility. Acupuncture influences the physiology of the body; increasing up-regulation of glucose, stimulating the production of hydrochloric acid and decreasing inflammation in the muscles to help with recovery from trauma.
Though acupuncture is only now becoming widely used in the West, its clinical use in China spans back two-thousand years. Over the years, techniques have been passed down from one generation to the next through written texts and word of mouth, documenting the details of how to treat specific diseases. The depth of work held in Chinese medicine makes nearly any other system of medicine in the world appear small in comparison. As acupuncture continues to evolve through its blossoming in the west, it becomes more precise and clinically relevant with each passing year.
