Acupuncture in Huntsville, ALAcupuncture is a form of Oriental Medicine originating from China over 2000 years ago. It involves the evaluation and treatment of 12 pathways called ‘Meridians’. Each meridian contains multiple points relating to different body systems and organs. Acupuncture stimulates these points promoting healing. Stimulation is done through using small, sterilized acupuncture needles, or through manual Acupressure.
Diagnosing through Oriental Medicine is quite different from Western Medicine. Acupuncturists pay attention to signs and symptoms that other practitioners may not incorporate. While basic anatomy is identical, we learn to evaluate meridians, pulses, and to observe the tongue, face, nails and skin. This information allows development of ‘patterns’ that lead to diagnosis.
