Life is full of extremes, and most of them are not very good for you. It is not difficult to understand that balance is an essential part of healthy and happy living. Even too much of a good thing can be a problem. For centuries, the Chinese have believed in the human body having a life force, with numerous pathways of energy. These pathways, called meridians, are like a highway system. They work fine most of the time, but encounter just one blockage, and nothing moves. Such is the case with your body’s “traffic flow”.
Many choices that we make are not in our best interest in the long run, and we are constantly bombarded by contaminants and toxins that can interfere with our body’s balance. In order to unblock the meridians and restore balance and health, acupuncture was developed. By placing very thin needles at key points in the body, energy flow can be restored. There is little to no pain involved with acupuncture, and it can be used for a variety of ailments.
It is believed that many ailments are directly affected by blocked meridians. Conditions such as anxiety, fibromyalgia, asthma, lower back pain, and severe menstrual cramps can often be alleviated through acupuncture. Just the fact that acupuncture has been around for hundreds of years is a testament to its effectiveness. It has stood the test of time and is a part of naturopathic treatments around the world.
