Acupuncture is an alternative medicine that treats patients by insertion and manipulation of needles in the body. Here at Whetton Chiropractic Center we focus on the body as a whole. When a patient comes into our office with a complaint and seeks an alternative treatment to ease their ailments we consider Acupuncture very seriously as an option to help in treatment. When diagnosing a patient for Acupuncture, we look for the root cause of their problem so as to be able to correct the imbalance.
Traditional Chinese Medicine incorporates Acupuncture, Moxibustion, and Herbs to help regulate the body’s energy and bring it back into balance. We have all of these tools at our disposal so as to give a full scope of treatment and to better serve the general public.
You may have heard the Theory of Yin and Yang. This theory explains that all phenomena consist of two opposite aspects, Yin and Yang. They are variously defined as: light and dark, hot and cold, up and down, etc. This ancient method of diagnosing dates back to before 200 BC. The term QI is used to describe the body’s energy. Traditional Chinese Medicine attributes disease and pathology to disturbances or imbalances in the metaphysical force known as qi (a word variously translated as "energy", "breath", or "vital energy").
