In Traditional Chinese Medicine we use various forms of acupuncture. For example, there is scalp acupuncture to treat neurological conditions such as stroke, there is dermatology needling to treat fine lines and wrinkles, there is auricular (ear) acupuncture to treat addictions. Moreover, the position, depth and handling of the needles is taking into consideration. Medically speaking, acupuncture is the insertion of disposable, one-time use, needles. There are several versions of needles, such as: thumbtack, seven star, plum blossom, three-edged, filiform. Needless can also be used with electrical stimulation.
TCM Acupuncture can be applied for prevention purposes (general wellness) or during the illness process (e.g., common cold) and also for recovery (e.g., sports).
TCM Acupuncture views a person from a holistic perspective, meaning the root and branch of the health condition is assessed and treated.

How Does Acupuncture Work?
Modern scientific research, through organizations such as the National Institute of Health (NIH), shows that Chinese Acupuncture accesses the nervous system, initiating a chain of electrical events in the body. The body communicates through electrical impulses. Acupuncturists can stimulate points along the meridians (“highways” of “Qi” in the body) and this stimulation helps to clear the road and open up the lines of communication, restoring balance to the flow of Qi (energy). Thus, Acupuncture helps to increase communication from the nerves to the brain, and from the brain to the organs and tissues of the body. Another function of Acupuncture is to increase circulation of blood flow in the body. Why is this important? Blood brings oxygen to tissues as well as white blood cells which help heal damaged areas of the body.
