Acupuncturists view the body from the Chinese medical perspective, which is different from the Western medical tradition in that it does not focus on the underlying cause of symptoms. Instead, acupuncturists and other Chinese medical practitioners are concerned with the overall harmony of the body’s systems. Acupuncture works by bringing the body back to a natural, healthy state of balance in order to reestablish health.
The body possesses a life force known as ‘Qi’ that runs throughout the body on interconnected channels called meridians. This life force is made up of two opposing forces, Yin and Yang, which must remain in balance in order to maintain health.
With acupuncture, each patient’s specific condition is evaluated on an individual basis to determine the best course of action. For example, traditional Chinese medicine may diagnose a case of gastritis as a deficiency in the stomach’s Yin; in this case, acupuncture points would be selected in order to rebalance the Yin and Yang of the stomach. The process involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the patient’s body in order to stimulate the flow of Qi.
From a Western perspective, acupuncture is a healthy, holistic treatment that can be used in conjunction with conventional medical therapy to help alleviate the unpleasant symptoms of gastritis.
