Originating in China over 3,000 years ago, the practice of acupuncture is part of the holistic system of healing known as Traditional Chinese Medicine. Believing that there are number of channels or meridians in the human body where vital energy, or Qi, flows through, acupuncturists use these channels as a road map to internal organs, muscles, bones and joints. With acupuncture, the theory holds that health is related to a balance and harmony within the body and that when this balance is disrupted illness occurs. When healthy the Qi runs smoothly to organs and tissues and keeps people from sickness. However, should the Qi become blocked then it requires a stimulus to restore the proper flow of energy.

Acupuncturists use very fine needle points and insert these needles at specific points on the meridians where the Qi is both concentrated and accessible. The needles act as a stimulus to unclog the energy flow and return the patient to well-being. While modern medicine has been reluctant to embrace acupuncture as a valid form of treatment many people swear by the healing powers of the practice and currently studies are under way to see how the body responds to acupuncture needles to determine if in fact the external stimulus is responsible for the central nervous system releasing pain-relieving chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord and brain.

If you're tried surgery and prescription medications to treat a variety of painful conditions and addictions with little or no luck contact the offices of Acupuncture Associates today. Providing a gentle and consultative approach to healing, Marc Gerstein and his associate Leslie Franks are well trained in performing acupuncture therapy, problem-specific massages and moxibustion to help patients get natural relief from pain, gastrointestinal disorders and debilitating conditions.
