F.A.Q.

Click any question below to reveal the answer.

Acupuncture is a 5,000 year old Chinese system of natural healing (no drugs...no surgery), which is concerned with restoring proper energy flow to the various organs, glands and tissues of the body on the premise that most diesases are the result of malfunction due to disrupted energies.

The Chinese definition of Health is "All parts of the body functioning normally," all 400 trillion parts. If there is an interruption in the transmission of energy flow or life force (called ch'i in Chinese), then organ malfunction, disease, pain and suffering are inevitable.

In the channels of energy flow, which are located throughout the body, just beneath the skin surface. Or in the spinal column where vertebrae may become misaligned thereby compressing vital nerve trunks.

Yes, of course. Psychosomatic states, herditary factors, poisons, adverse environmental conditions, injury, germs, malnutrition, etc...., are all disease producing.

By many methods, including certain signs, symptoms, pain spots, organ reflex points, and by pulse or instrumental findings.

First, the related skin points are determined. Then they are appropriately treated by one of over thiry methods of stimulation some of which can include: long needle insertion, short needle penetration, non-piercing needles, finger tip pressure, metallic balls taped to the points, electrical stimulation, and moxabustion.

Note: The non-piercing needle (teishin) is very popular because the technique is practically painless, there is no blood, no danger of infection, and results are equal to, if not better than other techniques.

Textbook listed conditions run into the hundreds. Typical ailments usually responding to acupuncture health care include: neuralgias, headaches, trigeminal neuralgia, tics, spasms, muscular rheumatism, neuralgia of the shoulders and arm, tennis elbow, osteoarthritis, rheumatism, ulcers, stomach problems, diarrhea, hepatitis, asthma, bronchitis, shortness of breath, coughs, certain typs of heart trouble, abnormal blood pressure, hemorrhoids, lumbago, bladder irritation, bed wetting, certain kidney problems, female disorders, impotence, glaucoma (sometimes), weak eyesight, hay fever, loss of smell, tonsillitis, loss of hearing, skin conditions, and even nervous or psychiatric factors based on the fact that often mental problems arise from physical disorders.

The above list may seem long as though acupuncture were a Panacea. The truth is that most textbooks list over two hundred diseases. Please be mindful of the fact that acupuncture is not like one drug used for one condition. On the contrary, it is a complete healing art within itself, concerned with the systems of the body such as nervous, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, eliminatory, reproductive, hormonal, musculoskeletal, etc, and seeks to correct health problems within those systems.

On the average, 8. Two out of ten fail to respond favorable for a variety of reasons. Advanced age, severity of the condition, irreversible tissue damage, etc, are deterents to recovery.

Absolutely. Spinal adjusting is part of the acupuncture health care. World authorities including Feliz Mann, M.D. of England; Paul Nogies, M.D. of France; and Kunzo Nagayama, M.D. of Japan are very empathetic on this aspect of "getting well." Dr. Mann states that many internal diseases are cured by the spinal adjustment alone. Leaving the adjustment (chiropractic) out of the treatment plan invites failure.

Any doctor (chiropractor, medical, or osteopath) who has had the proper training. Any doctor who has not had the proper training is pretending to know something he/she does not, and by that definition is a quack. Just because a doctor happens to have a chiropractic, medical, or osteopathic degree doe not mean he/she is qualified to do acupuncture. If he/she engages in practice, he/she is guily of acupuncture malpractice. He/she must receive qualified training and pass exams to certify competence. This protects the public.

Yes. In fact, the word acupuncture is incorrect because it implies needles only. The proper wording is "Meridian Therapy," or Ching Lo Chi Liao in Chinese. It was named "acupuncture" in the 16th century by Portuguese sailors who knew no better. The wrong name stuck.

Yes, there are four laws to obey for those who desire health and longevity: proper nutrition, adequate rest, moderate exercise, a positive mental attitude.
