Medical Acupuncture

Acupuncture treatment performed by a medical doctor consists of the insertion of  fine needles into the body in patterns.  A needle is selected to encourage energy movement, along with points near the area of treatment to focus the energy.  This treatment also activates the body’s chemical systems and thereby changes the perception of stimuli at various levels of the central nervous system.

The clinical results of acupuncture have been studied very closely, using objective data.  Western acupuncture documentation was largely anecdotal until 1975 when newly discovered neurotransmitters were discovered. Since then acupuncture has developed a place in scientific research.

Neurophysiology, advanced imaging radiology, genomic and proteinomic research have all resulted in the fact that medical acupuncture is now included as a sophisticated therapeutic modality in Western medicine.
