Over the past several decades acupuncture has gained considerable recognition and much earned respect in the West as an alternative natural therapy for pain, and many acute and chronic conditions. Numerous research articles on the many conditions acupuncture can treat can be found at PubMed (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed). Originating in China over 3000 years ago, acupuncture is now endorsed by the Whole Heath Organization for its effectiveness in treating many modern conditions.
Acupuncture has become an acceptable form of complementary medicine that can be used in conjunction with Western medicine for the treatment of pain and other acute-chronic illnesses. At Soaring Crane Acupuncture we believe that the integration of East & West can offer a comprehensive holistic approach to health and well-being.
Chinese Medicine is the world’s oldest form of preventive medicine, often detecting and correcting imbalances before they become chronic. Today acupuncture remains an effective preventive treatment for many stress related illnesses, digestive & immune disorders, hormone imbalances, and acute and chronic pain.

How Acupuncture Works
In Chinese Medicine pain and disease begins with a blockage or imbalance in the flow of energy circulating throughout the body in channels called meridians. By inserting very fine, sterile needles at specific points along the meridians, acupuncture restores the proper flow of energy in the meridians, returning the body to health and balance.
A Licensed Acupuncturist carefully selects points according to the patient’s condition, each point is specifically tailored to that individual’s health needs and gently stimulated. Other modalities such as moxabustion, cupping, and electro-acupuncture may also be used during a treatment to help correct the imbalance, remove energy blockages, and restore the body to health.
No Longer Considered “Fringe” Medicine
Modern science has conducted extensive research on how acupuncture works. It explains that when an acupuncture point is stimulated the nervous system releases chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals trigger the release of hormones, neurotransmitters, and other chemicals which influence the body’s internal regulating system.
