What is Acupuncture? | Syracuse, NY Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves stimulating points on the body to help restore balance to the body. In its most basic sense, acupuncture helps the body heal itself by affecting the body’s qi. There is no consensus as to what qi is from a Western medicine perspective, but there is a proposal that qi correlates to ATP, the basic unit of energy produced in our bodies necessary to carry out all of the physiological and biochemical processes.

“Acupuncture is a complete medical protocol focused on correcting imbalances in the body. From its inception in China more than 5,000 years ago, acupuncture has been used traditionally to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease, as well as to improve general health.”

Dr. Andrew Weil

Acupuncture needles are sterile, single-use, and very thin.  They are not hollow, and acupuncturists are well trained to make needle insertion painless.
