Acupuncture is extremely safe, easy to administer and has no side effects; it is effective by itself and as a compliment to other medical procedures. At PranaJaya, we recognize the value of understanding acupuncture from multiple points of view and find that the combination creates a much stronger system to benefit our patients.

Acupuncture promotes self-healing by bringing the body back into balance. It is performed by inserting hair-thin, sterile, disposable filaments at specific points on the body. It is effective for a variety of internal health problems, particularly for cases in which Western medicine has little to offer, especially pain management. It is an essential element of Oriental medicine.

Oriental medicine is traditionally based on an energetic model. Ancient people recognized a vital energy behind all life’s forms and processes. They called this energy “Prana” or “Qi” (pronounced chee). In the human body, Qi flows along specific pathways called channels. Each channel is also associated with an organ system. There are hundreds of acupuncture points along the channels, each having a specific therapeutic function. Disease arises due to an imbalance of Qi in the channels and in their associated organ systems. This blockage in the harmonious flow of Qi is considered the root of all disease.

Western medicine recognizes that acupuncture affects our body both locally and internally through our nervous system. MRI studies have shown that acupuncture affects major integration centers in the brain and central nervous system. Locally, acupuncture activates neuro-endocrine, immune, and cardiovascular reactions around the needling site. This directly desensitizes pain and repairs damaged soft tissue. When treating internal disorders acupuncture indirectly affects the central nervous system by normalizing the physiological activities of the whole body.
