The Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture careers benefits those seeking alternative medical treatments

Edmonton, AB - November 8, 2010 - The practice of acupuncture has been part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. Acupuncture is based on the idea that energy flows through the body like electrical currents called "meridians". This energy, called "Qi" (pronounced "chee"), flows to our organs, enabling them to function properly.

Chinese Acupuncture

When meridians become blocked, Qi builds up in parts of the body, while other areas of the body are deprived of energy. This creates an energy imbalance that results in illness and disease. Chinese Acupuncture restores this imbalance of energy by placing long, thin needles on sites of energy blockage, which releases the obstructed energy, restores the balance of Qi and promotes the body's own healing processes.

Acupuncture Benefits

There are a dizzying number of acupuncture benefits. Some of the conditions that have been successfully treated with acupuncture include:

  • Addictions
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Arthritis, tendonitis and other joint-related problems
  • Back pain
  • Eye disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches, migraines and other stress-related conditions
  • Infertility
  • Menstrual cramps and menstrual irregularities
  • Sinus problems
  • Weight problems


Many Western medical professionals now recognize the benefits of acupuncture as well. They theorize that acupuncture encourages the nervous system to release chemicals in the brain, muscles, and spinal cord, which promotes healing in the body.
