Acupuncture – Amazing benefits for health and wellness

By Julianna Englund

Early Chinese medical experts discovered acupuncture as a solution for various physical ailments. Acupuncture was seen for the first time in Europe just about 300 years ago, however, it took until close to the twenty first century before acupuncture received popular appeal in the US and various other “western” countries. Along with this acceptance, the medical and professional society has been involved in research on many aspects of acupuncture.

Acupuncture consists of inserting thin, specialized needles just slightly into the skin at very specific locations. Early and modern Chinese texts state that a wide variety of ailments can be treated. Exactly where the acupuncture needles are put is clearly outlined according to Chinese medical theory. However, the acupuncture points occur in special places of the body called meridian lines. Meridians are the energetic pathways that are essential for life and health, and energy has to flow unimpeded between them.

SLO and Acupuncture

San Luis Obispo and acupuncture share the idea of a balanced life.  According to Dan Buettner, in his book, “Thrive,” San Luis Obispo is one of the “happiest” places in the world because people take the time to exercise, volunteer, and socialize, besides work. In acupuncture, the goal of any treatment is to assist the body in reestablishing its innate harmony.  Acupuncture is used to open or adjust the flow of “qi,” the vital energy which regulates body functions.

Acupuncture corrects the imbalances in the flow of qi by the stimulation of acu-points located under the skin using thin metal needles, which are manipulated manually or by electrical stimulation.  For a happy place like SLO to “thrive,” the body is respected and listened to.  Pain and such conditions as infertility, arthritis, migraines, low back pain, sciatica, asthma, and fibromyalgia are addressed and can be treated with the use of acupuncture.
