The Science of Acupuncture

Acupuncture needles are inserted in order to access the flow of qi (energy) in the body. Though Chinese medical theory is aeons old, modern science has now confirmed the precision of its electromagnetic meridian system.

So effective is acupuncture treatment that the World Health Organization now recommends the use of acupuncture in treating over 47 major illnesses.

Qi and blood can be in excess in certain parts of the body, in which case they may get ’stuck’ and cause pain. In other parts of the body, qi and blood may be deficient, causing weakness and fatigue.

Acupuncture helps the qi and blood to flow freely throughout the body, thereby bringing the body into balance.

The first thing people ask who have not been treated with acupuncture needles is, “Will it Hurt?” The answer is almost never. At Joyful Life Healing we use very thin needles, so the patient feels almost nothing and the effect is very, very relaxing.

Here is one patient’s testimonial about the power of Jill Harrison’s acupuncture treatment:

Chinese Medicine, or Acupuncture to be more exact, is one of those things that once you discover it, you can’t believe you have lived your whole life without it. Then you really can’t believe there are people who aren’t aware of it and others who don’t believe in it. It’s one of the few times in life where you get instant gratification, and it’s considered a good thing! As soon as you lie down, within a few seconds of the needles in your skin, you feel a high that is pure and relaxing… especially if Jill is your Acupuncturist. There is something magical about her. Something so healing, so loving, so open that instantly relaxes your whole being, resulting in a complete state of relaxation and the ability to enjoy the maximum benefits. All you have to do is get to Jill; she will take care of the rest. Whether it’s physical, mental, or you just need to get balanced, you can trust your mind, body, and soul to her.
