What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture originated from India, but was developed in China, where it has been practiced for over 3,000 years. It is one branch of Oriental Medicine, which uses a theoretical system based on Chi energy.
Practitioners of Oriental Medicine believe that Chi flows through the body along special pathways called Channels. When Chi is able to flow in a free and balanced manner, health is restored.
How does Acupuncture work?
An acupuncturist inserts thin sterile needles at specific points along these channels to strengthen the flow of Chi or to remove blockage. This stimulates the body's natural healing process.
Do the needles hurt?
No. Acupuncture needles are very thin, much finer than needles used for injections. The needles are only about three times the thickness of a human hair, and are designed to penetrate the skin with little resistance.
Is Acupuncture safe?
Yes! Acupuncture needles are sterile and disposable. They are only used once and discarded. In addition, there are far fewer adverse effects associated with acupuncture than with many prescription drugs and other medical procedures. Different people experience different sensations from acupuncture. Some patients describe tingling, warmth, or a heavy feeling. Most people find the sessions relaxing, and it is not uncommon to fall asleep during treatment.
What is Chi Gong?
Chi Gong is the Chinese system of exercises and breathing used for personal health, healing, and therapy. It is an internal method of practice and a skill used by martial artists for protection and power. Healers can create intense energy and have the ability to externalize and transfer their Chi flow. Combined with traditional acupuncture, Chi Gong provides perhaps the most potent of all treatments. Dr. Kim is the only acupuncturist in Oklahoma who provides acupuncture treatment with Chi Energy Infusion, with and without the use of needles.
Duration of treatment may vary
Some patients notice rapid improvement after just a few sessions. In other cases, conditions that have taken years to develop may take longer to treat. Occasionally, symptoms may worsen for a day or two before they begin to improve. This is not a cause for alarm, but is often a natural part of the healing process.
