Hudson Valley AcupunctureAcupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese Medicine that dates back to almost 5,000 years. Throughout the centuries, this practice has been adopted by various cultures as a form of healthcare.
Needles are use as a conduit between the practitioner and patient to help correct any imbalances in the flow of Qi, or energy, in the patient's body.
The theory of opposing energies, know as Yin and Yang, is an underlying concept that describes the relationship between all things. These opposites should be viewed as being complimentary to one another since one cannot exist without the other.
What is Holistic Medicine?
Acupuncture and all facets of Chinese Medicine are based on a holistic principle. The holistic approach to healthcare entails gathering information outside of primary symptoms. It is vital for Acupuncturists to assess an individual's body, mind and spirit. This is important since one aspect of a person's life can effect and cause disruption in another aspect. We commonly see this when an agitated emotional state causes a physical reaction such as a headache.
