Broward Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

From White Crane Healing Arts in Broward

WhiteCrane 1 Broward Acupuncture  Chinese MedicineAcupuncture is over 5000 years old and is a time tested healing modality originating from the far East.  Each individual will experience acupuncture on a personal level and what one feels depends on their own state of being and level of sensitivity.  It’s common to feel a sensation of warmth, tingling or traveling Qi (energy) when the needles are inserted; and many experience a profound sense of relaxation and well being or possibly increased energy.  Acupuncture treats the whole being which includes body, mind, emotions and spirit.

Acupuncture points are located in the small depressions or hollows in the skin called gates.  Thru these gates, one can access the internal streams and rivers of energy that transport Qi and blood.  Qi and blood give sustenance to the interaction and cohesion of mind, body and spirit.  Fundamentally, illness manifests when Qi, Blood and Fluids are either blocked, depleted or imbalanced, which diminishes its healthy coherence to the point of dysfunction or eventually illness. Acupuncture can reorganize this dynamic by opening, closing or harmonizing the flows within the rivers and streams (channels).

The 8 extraordinary vessel  system is a way to harmonize and heal our mind, body and spirit.  It broadens our ability to effect change on multiple levels, so we can expand the true nature of whole being.
