Just Try It Tuesday: Acupuncture

Posted: Updated:

For this week's Just Try It Tuesday, Anya and Lewis tried out acupuncture at Thrive Acupuncture and Wellness.

Co-Owner Nic Krueger says acupuncture is used to help with many ailments and for fertility issues. Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific acupoints along the skin by using thin sterilized disposable needles. Stimulating specific acupuncture points corrects imbalances in the flow of energy between organs and throughout the body. The main objectives of acupuncture are to relieve pain and other various symptoms, strengthen and support the immune system, and balance and integrate the functions of the organs so they work together harmoniously rather than in isolation. 

Acupuncture is a form of healing which balances the essential healthy energy flow – or Qi (chi) –  throughout the body, using the body’s own resources. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the Qi flows in channels – or meridians – like a river system throughout the body. Each major organ is associated with its own meridian, which in turn are connected to all the other organs, muscles, bones and joints.

Disruptions of the flow of healthy Qi patterns are caused by our everyday environment as well as injury, trauma, unhealthy lifestyle choices and disease.

The owners at Thrive Acupuncture and Wellness are passionate about their patient’s well-being and promote healthy, balanced lives. They believe the treatment environment is very important and that only in a completely relaxed state can healing and change take place. Often a patient will drift off during an appointment and awaken refreshed and rejuvenated.
