An Eastern Approach
How does Acupuncture work?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) explains that health is the result of a harmonious balance of the complementary extremes of yin and yang, the life force known as Qi.
Qi flows through our meridians (pathways) in the human body. We have 14 main meridians that extend to our fingers and toes. They work like a freeway system that runs throughout the body.
Sometimes we get a traffic jam (stagnation) and symptoms will arise depending on where the stagnation occurs. Through 350 acupuncture points in the body, these meridians and energy flows may be accessed. Illness is the consequence of an imbalance of these forces. When needles are inserted into these points with the appropriate combinations then the energy flow can be brought back into proper balance.
An ancient technique with a modern twist.
Dr. Bright uses new technology that can measure your acupuncture meridians through a quick exam that measures the electric olms on specific Acupuncture points for each meridian. Giving you a nice graph read out of where your imbalances are. This allows for a simple and easy way to help track your progress while giving both the patient and practitioner an objective view of your health.
