Acupuncture FAQ’s-the real story about Acupuncture
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a method of inserting sterile, disposable needles into specific acupuncture points to encourage the body to promote its own natural healing ability and to improve overall bodily function. It originated from China some 5000 years ago. It has grown in popularity because of its effectiveness to treat illnesses at the root, rather than masking the symptoms.
What is Chinese Medicine?
Many people have heard about Acupuncture for pain management however, Chinese medicine is a complete and comprehensive medical system with the ability to diagnose, treat, and prevent disease. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are really a way of life. If you practice healthy habits and use Acupuncture to ‘tune up’ the body, while using natural remedies like Chinese Herbs, you can live a long, healthy and prosperous life.

Acupuncturists are trained in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture as well as Western Medicine. Our Acupuncturist in Franklin has worked closely with Medical Doctors and within the western diagnostic system. The treatment differs in that Chinese Medicine practitioners are trained to look at the body more holisitically whereby all systems are interrelated.
