FOX11 News recently did a segment on how veterans with emotional and physical pain are finally seeing improvement with the use of acupuncture.
You can see that segment here: Treating Veterans' PTSD with Acupuncture
At Jade Star, we are honored to work closely with our local VA center to provide our veterans with the care they need and deserve.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture involves inserting very thin needles into the body at different locations and depths. It aims to balance the life forces known as Qi that are responsible for different health issues.
How does it work?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) explains that health is the result of a harmonious balance of the complementary extremes of yin and yang of the life force known as Qi, pronounced “chi.” Advocates believe that illness is the consequence of an imbalance of these forces.
According to TCM, Qi flows through meridians, or pathways, in the human body. These meridians and energy flows are accessible through 361 acupuncture points in the body. Inserting needles into these points with appropriate combinations will bring the energy flow back into balance.
Benefits May Include:
Improved mental clarity, concentration, and memory.
Decreased nightmares, hyper-vigilance, and flashbacks.
Reduced anxiety and irritability.
More restful sleep.
