About Acupuncture Works | Your Natural Health
At Acupuncture Works, we use Traditional Chinese Medicine rooted in 2,500 years of science and medicine to help our patients reach their health care goals safely and effectively. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used as an effective pain management technique. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress and anxiety management.
Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as chi or qi (chee) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific acupuncture points along these meridians, practitioners strive to rebalance your energy flow.
Many Western practitioners view these acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body's natural painkillers to bring about pain relief.
Alternative medicine works on all levels — body, mind, and spirit — and uses various modalities to address health issues and improve wellness. Our educated practitioners are dedicated to helping our patients get their lives back. We invite you to experience the benefits of acupuncture for yourself by scheduling your appointment with us at our acupuncture center in the Myrtle Beach, SC region.
