Pacifica Medical Association & Accupuncture
Chinese acupuncture and herbal medicine reflect a massive history of clinical data documented as early as the 4th century A.D. with the medical classic the Yellow Emperor's Inner Classic. In developing the methods of acupuncture, Chinese doctors learned to insert fine needles into the body to balance the body's energy system. When the energy is stagnant or blocked, many problems can occur. From the point of view of modern medicine, the principle action of acupuncture is to regulate bodily function, to enhance the immune system, and promote the analgesic, antiseptic, antishock, and the anti paralytic abilities of the body. At the end of the treatment period, it is a common experience to feel relaxed and rejuvenated, because acupuncture causes a release of natural and healing endorphins.
