Acupuncture Peoria IL

Acupuncture and Chiropractic are like a brother and sister relationship.  They go hand-in-hand for healing.

Acupuncture is an ancient health science which is used successfully to treat both pain and dysfunction in the body.  Authorities agree the science is between 5,000 and 7,000 years old.  The practice of acupuncture has not changed from its inception.

Acupuncture is perceived as strange to most Westernes as its primary application is the utilization of very slender, painless needles placed in the skin at various locations to relieve pain of affect a body part or function.  You may be wondering if Acupuncture is painful – the answer is no.

Early Asian physicians discovered there is an energy network traversing on or just below the surface of the sin which communicates from the exterior to the internal organs and structures at over 1,000 “acupoints” on the body.  This energy works in harmony with the body’s circulatory, nervous muscular, digestive, genitourinary and all other systems of the body.  When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, an effect in a body system or anatomic location becomes evident.  Stimulation of one or a combination of key acupoints on the body may restore harmony to the affected area.

Historians have stated, “More people have benefited from Acupuncture over the course of fifty centuries than the combined total of all other healing sciences, both ancient and modern.”
