Acupuncture in Omaha, NE
Acupuncture is an ancient health science which is used to successfully treat both pain and dysfunction in the body. There is an energy network system that travels just below the surface of the skin that communicates with the organs and structures in the body at over1000 acupoints. When this energy system is blocked or weakened it can affect the proper function of the bodies systems. With stimulation of one or a combination of certain acupoints harmony can then be restored.
The acupuncture system is made up of 24 pathways called meridians. There are numbered points along each pathway. These are your acupoints. The meridian system is a map or guide developed by Asian ancestry 5,000 to 7,000 years ago.
Today many theories have postulated to explain why acupuncture is so effective for pain relief and condition response. Although a consensus is uncertain, it is imperative that research is continued, meanwhile we will continue to appreciate the benefits this ancient treatment has to offer.
"Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." -World Health Organization, 1948
