Acupuncture Q & A

What Is Acupuncture Treatment?

Acupuncture is a type of treatment that originated in China more than 3,000 years ago. Acupuncturists use extremely slim needles, placing them in key areas on the body to alleviate pain in a natural way. The needles create a balance in the body’s energy, which allows the body to return to its optimal pain-free state.

There are several types of acupuncture. In moxibustion, moxa taken from dried mugwort warms key areas and helps with smooth qi energy flow. In auricular acupuncture, points on the outer ear are stimulated for healing. In cupping therapy, suction is used to help stimulate blood flow and promote healing.

Sometimes patients say to me, I know my body. And it's true. Many people know their bodies, meaning they know what they feel, but they can't know what they don't feel.

So this past week, unfortunately, Bob Saget died. He died Saturday night to Sunday. Saturday he posted that he was feeling great. He was back being a comedian. Now, I don't know anything about Bob Sagatt other than what I read in the news like you guys. But how is it possible that he went from feeling great to, unfortunately, being dead the next day, God rest his soul?

So the answer is he felt great, but there was clearly something going on in his body that he was not aware of. So he might have said, I know my body, but he knew what he felt and he felt good. There was something else going on. So how we feel is not the totality of the reality of what's going on with our bodies. Sometimes you need another viewpoint to really know what's going
