Medical Treatments

Acupuncture simultaneously activates multiple medical systems:

1) the nervous system,  peripheral and  central

Acupuncture points stimulate the brain and spinal cord to release specific chemicals.   These chemicals either change the experience of pain or release hormones that influence the body’s self-regulating systems.  The biochemical changes produced by these chemicals stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well being.  The mechanisms which produce these changes are: a) Conduction of electromagnetic signals. b) Activation of native narcotic systems. c) Changes in brain chemistry.                                         

2) the blood circulation system

Acupuncture has positive effects on rapid heart rate, poor heart pumping, unstable blood pressure and poor peripheral circulation.  It tends to slightly increase the blood pressure of normal healthy individuals, but is good for controlling the blood pressurre in patients with elevated blood pressure.  Acupuncture is effective for releasing arterial spasms, and helps with the healing of venous stasis ulcers.

3) the lymphatic system

Acupuncture elevates levels of while blood cells, specific hormones which fight disease, and promotes the bodies release of blood vessel dilators which facilitate migration of these while blood cells to areas of infection.  It raises levels of stress fighting chemicals and reduces the level of dangerous chemicals. 

4) the electromagnetic system, including fascial stimulation throughout the body

Acupuncture points are strategic conductors of electromagnetic signals.  Stimulating these points enables these electromagnetic signals to be relayed at greater than normal rates.  These signals may start the flow of pain killing biochemicals and release immune system cells to specific body sites.

These biologic changes are effective for the treatment of acute and chronic disease.
