ACUPUNCTURE IN A NUTSHELL

ACUPUNCTURE IN A NUTSHELL

Inside of you is an intelligent, energetic system that maintains health and balance. for the past 5,000 years, practitioners of acupuncture have called this intelligent energy, Qi

Qi- is the vital energy in all living things, from the tallest tree to the smallest cell. Qi is the combination of energies, mixed together from our food, air and inherited constitution.

Qi provides the power to accomplish everyday activities. It is necessary for growth, development, movement,maintenance of body temperature, protection against illness and disease, and overall regulation of the body. Our health is influenced by the quality , quantity and balance of Qi. Ancient practitioners said, When Qi gathers, the physical body is formed; when Qi disperses, the body passes on.

Scientists and doctors have come up with theories to help explain the benefits of acupuncture.

Neurotransmitter Theory-Acupuncture stimulates the release of specific neurotransmitters that affect immune system function.

Autonomic Nervous System Theory-Acupuncture stimulates the release of norepinephrine, acetylcholine and several types of opioids, affecting changes in type autonomic nervous system, and reducing pain.

Gate ControlTheory- Acupuncture acticates specific receptors that inhibit the transmission of pain stimuli.

Vascular -interstitial Theory- Acupuncture affects the electrical system of the body. This facilitates healing by allowing the transfer of material and electical energy between normal and injuried tissues.

Blood Chemistry Theory-Acupuncture can both raise and diminish periperal blood components, thereby regulating the body toward homeostasis.

  • "Great staff! Friendly and efficient. Because of an insurance change, I was unable to come for too long. Thanks to a buyout, I am back! Doc does an awesome job. He listens to what the problem is and works to correct it. He doesn't rush you in and out as fast as he can. Excellent."

  • "I've been going to Twin Oaks Chiropractic for about a month now. I've had an awesome experience with the doctor and staff. I also purchased the pillow sold in the office. You add water to it so you get the perfect amount of "fluff." With the pillow, my neck pain has decreased dramatically, and I am sleeping better! Because of the treatments, massage, and pillow, I am in far less pain and overall, much happier. Thank you to the staff and doctor there!"
