Acupuncture is a hands-on technique that identifies each person’s energy flow in their channels. By using prescriptive points to reconnect all the different points of the body’s meridians, acupuncture wakes up the body’s own healing abilities and strengthens the body’s innate power of reaching homeostasis. We use various techniques and approaches to maximize the effects of acupuncture. For example, while most people respond well to body acupuncture, some will respond exponentially better to auricular or hand acupuncture. In addition to the health benefits, acupuncture can also be used for beautification treatment. By reducing and even reversing the signs of aging, it is quickly becoming a popular modality for facial rejuvenation.
Acupuncture needles are completely different from needles used in conventional practice (i.e. injection needles). Many people may fear acupuncture because they are afraid of the needles or imagine acupuncture to be painful. Actually, the thinness of acupuncture needles can be compared to a strand of hair, and they are extremely smooth. This makes for relatively pain-free insertion. You may sense a slight sensation at the moment of insertion (more so if you are a child, tired, or weak). The majority of people will experience a sense of great relaxation and well-being during the process. At Healing Power of Nature, we only use disposable needles for each treatment, so there is no risk of transmitting communicable diseases.

There are two kinds of explanations about how acupuncture works. I would like to give a traditional explanation. In traditional Chinese medicine, there exists meridian system through human body and more than 360 acupoints are located at these meridians. Qi, or a stream of energy, flows through these meridians and acupoints to support tissue, muscles and organs. When the Qi is obstructed in certain critical points, or acupoints, the function of tissue, muscles and organs will be impaired.
By inserting acupuncture needles into acupoints helps the release of Qi flow and corrects Qi imbalances at the organ level to improve your energy and internal processing.
