Acupuncture helps to improve the overall functioning of the nerve, immune and organ systems. Acupuncture can be used at different points in your healthcare and at any age, newborn to elderly:
Acupuncture is the gentle insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body. The purpose of this procedure is to stimulate the nerve signals within the body, allowing natural healing to take place as the nerve flow is turned back on. Just like a light switch that is turned off or dimmed, the nerve presence is there, just not turned on very bright. The placement of the acupuncture needles is like flipping the light switch. The nerve flow gets turned on and proper balance, or lighting in the case of this example, is restored to normal.
