Los Angeles Acupuncture

Chi is the life energy that all living things possess. It moves freely along meridians or pathways. As the energy circulates along these paths, obstructions can sometimes block their flow causing the “chi” to cease its movement. This can cause imbalances that affect emotional, mental and physical health. Acupuncture removes these blockages and helps to re-establish the flow of chi. As the chi begins to circulate, healing takes place that restores balance and brings radiance back to the body.

What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a three-thousand year old form of complementary medicine. It involves using golden, hair-thin needles to stimulate specific points on the body that correspond with specific body parts and conditions. Using specific acu-points, the acupuncturist can bring the body back into a state of balance and harmony. They can relieve pain, improve fertility, optimize health and address several different mental, emotional and physical conditions. Acupuncture has become extremely popular in the West and is commonly used to complement conventional forms of therapy.

During an acupuncture session, hair-thin needles are inserted into the skin at precise acu-points on the body. This form of treatment is most often used in traditional Chinese healing systems to control and alleviate pain.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture is used to restore balance and re-establish the flow of chi or life force energy. Chi flows along the meridians or pathways that travel throughout the body. Acupuncture practitioners insert the thin needles into specific points to elicit a healing response and restore a balanced flow of energy.

Western practitioners who specialize in acupuncture believe that by inserting the needles into specific points, they stimulate nerves and other forms of tissue to elicit a healing response. They believe that by stimulating the muscles and connective tissues the body will begin to release its own natural pain killers and improve blood flow to the affected area.

The Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture offers numerous health benefits that cover a wide array of ailments on both physical and emotional levels. The most popular use for acupuncture is the relief of pain. This includes migraines, headaches, back and neck pain, as well as pain caused by accidents and injuries. Acupuncture has proven to be beneficial for a variety of women's health issues as well. PMS, fertility issues and discomfort during pregnancy have all been successfully treated with acupuncture. Emotional problems related to addictive behaviors and depression have also been treated with positive results using acupuncture.

Because it helps to restore and sustain balance within the body, acupuncture is ideal for general health maintenance and a sense of well-being. For most clients, regular sessions with Ms. Postolov help them to maintain balanced levels of energy and a positive outlook. Acupuncture also relieves their stress, aids in weight loss and offers a sense of well-being and cheerfulness.

Acupuncture is minimally invasive and has no side effects. It works well with conventional forms of treatment and can be used for almost any illness or injury.

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Sterile, extremely thin needles are used in acupuncture. They are gently inserted into very specific points along meridians in the body. The needles unblock the life energy or chi, and allow it to flow freely. Needles are individually packaged and only used one time. Patients often report a tingling sensation or heavy pressure once the needle has been inserted. Other than that, there is little to no pain. Many clients look forward to acupuncture treatments claiming they are both relaxing and energizing at the same time. Feelings of well-being and calmness are also reported after a treatment.

An Introduction to Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture treatment uses extremely thin stainless steel needles inserted into precise points on the body to get to the root cause of any imbalance and not just the symptoms. Traditional Chinese medicine includes herbal formulas, nutritional advice, moxibustion, cupping and other techniques combined with acupuncture to create a comprehensive strategy designed to alleviate immediate symptoms while re-establishing optimal health. Acupuncture has long been known as a method of coping with physical pain. With an increase in blood circulation, a reduction in inflammation, the relaxation of the muscles, and a release of endorphins, it can assist your body in healing itself. Acupuncture works to re-pattern and restore normal circulation and functionality by stimulating certain points on the meridians to free up the body's natural flow of energy known as Qi ("chi").
