What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and improve functioning. This is done by inserting fine, sterile, disposable needles into very precise acupuncture points. Mr. Froehlich’s expertise in acupuncture is well-known in Dayton, OH, and the surrounding areas.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
The classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are likened to rivers flowing through the body to provide energy and nourishment. An obstruction in the movement of these meridians is like a dam that backs up the flow in one part of the body and restricts it in others.
The meridians can be influenced by needling the acupuncture points. The acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions in the meridian and reestablish the regular flow of this energy called Qi (chee). Acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body’s internal organs correct imbalances in digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of energy through the meridians.
From Ancient Science to Modern Times
A modern scientific explanation is that needling acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system, stimulates the release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones that influence the body’s own internal regulating system. Acupuncture also directly effects the tension in muscles, fascia and connective tissue providing a decrease in tension and an increase in circulation.
The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
