Acupuncture

AcupunctureTraditional Chinese medicine explains that health is the result of a harmonious balance of the complimentary extremes of yin and yang of the life force known as qi (pronounced chi). Qi is said to flow through meridians (pathways) in the human body. Through 350 acupuncture points in the body, these meridians and energy flows may be accessed. Illness is said to be the consequence of disharmony, when needles are inserted into these points with appropriate combinations the energy flow throughout the body can be brought back into proper balance.

Acupuncture treatments at ADAPT Advanced include the application of various forms of Chinese medicinal therapies. These therapies include: acupuncture (traditional Chinese, auricular, scalp and electrical stimulation), moxibustion and far-infrared radiation (specialized heat applications), herbal medicine, tui na (Chinese bodywork), fire cupping and gua sha (scraping).

Acupuncture treatments are designed to complement and facilitate ADAPT Advanced’s training philosophy and the Five Fundamentals of Movement,

  • Increases in joint Range of Motion can be achieved by isolating imbalances between opposing muscle groups.
  • Structural Capacity is enhanced through the alignment of the structural joints and increases in bone density. (1)
  • Neuro Function can be impacted by direct stimulation of neural pathways and mediation of a variety of neurotransmitter systems. Acupuncture has been shown to stimulate the autonomic nervous system, muscle sensory nerves, spinal cord, midbrain, pons, medulla and pituitary. (2)
  • Muscular Function gains are achieved through strengthening of the autonomic nervous system signal to create and maintain more normal muscle tone. In addition, the muscles themselves can be stimulated directly to increase and preserve strength. (2)
  • Instinct is awakened through the production of sensations that act to re-connect the mind and body.
