The body communicates with itself in two main ways, with electrical signals through the nerves or with endocrine or immunological factors circulating in the blood. Acupuncture, by inserting a metallic implement into tissue, works by utilizing both of those pathways. Through astute observation and experimentation, ancient Chinese physicians worked out a reliable map and method to use these miniscule needles to send and receive messages directly to their patients’ physiology. Thinking of the human body as its own ecosystem, acupuncture treatments are approached as if the physician is dredging or stirring or redirecting improperly flowing water.
The practice philosophy at Yi Guan Acupuncture is to send a clear message to the body with comparatively few needles but used with a deliberate focus on skilled manipulation of the needle to fine-tune that message and read the body’s response.
