Acupuncture at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation
Acupuncture is a technique of using fine needles at precise points on the body to encourage natural healing and improve functioning. Acupuncture originated in China thousands of years ago and has recently become a respected form of therapy in the United States. The perspective from which an acupuncturist views health and sickness relies on concepts of vital energy, energetic balance, and energetic imbalance.
At the core of Acupuncture is the notion that a type of energy known as Qi (pronounced “chee”), flows through energy pathways in the body. Each pathway corresponds to one organ, or group of organs, that manages particular body functions. Achieving the proper flow of Qi is thought to create health and wellness. Acupuncturists believe that an unbalance of Qi can cause disease. The fine needles are inserted at points where the energy pathways are close to the skin.
Today, there are several schools throughout our country that teach acupuncture. In New Jersey, there are only a handful of Certified Acupuncturists.
