Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has an established clinical history of over 2500 years and is one of the oldest medical systems practiced worldwide.
Acupuncture & TCM is a comprehensive medical system based on the understanding that there is an important relationship between the mind, the body and spirit that is relevant to the healing process. In Chinese Medicine, we don't focus on dis-ease inside a box the way western medical models do, black and white cause and effects. Instead, we treat the patterns of imbalance presented by the body that can manifest in endless ways. This allows healing on a much deeper and more profound level as each individual will express these patterns differently.
How Acupuncture Works
Calms And Balances Your Neuro-Endocrine Axis
When your nervous system is calm, your hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means greater hormonal balance, less inflammation, better circulation and nutrient absorption.
Opens And Regulates Microcirculation
When we use acupuncture to bring more blood flow to the glands and tissues that need the most support, those tissues naturally work better. This means key tissues like thyroid, liver, adrenals, ovaries, and others are able to function at peak levels.
Promotes Tissue Regeneration & Healing
When you use acupuncture to stimulate your body’s healing process, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help you heal faster.
Helps Your Body Sustain Optimal Function
When you apply acupuncture as a weekly therapy for several weeks, your body naturally and gently begins to undergo positive changes. This is different from drugs and surgery which represent drastic, sudden change your body may not be able to sustain. The changes induced by acupuncture are literally like new pathways your body won’t soon forget.
The body has the tools it needs to maintain proper function and balance. However, our fast paced and high stress modern lifestyles and the often less than optimal inputs we subject our bodies to can easily lead to confusion and dysregulation. Blending mind, body and spirit practices, we will get to the root of your health concern.
When you come to Vital Life Center, we will help you identify these areas that are out of balance and provide treatment to get you back on track, as well as long term lifestyle advice to keep you at your best outside of direct care plans.
