Acupuncture can help relieve pain and many other health concerns.

The key to improving health is improving circulation.

Pain is a result of improper circulation.

Many health concerns are result of improper circulation between the organs and glands.

It’s incredible to understand that every one of the billion of cells in our body is part of one unit; all working together; all connected.

The harmony of our body working is called physiology.

Acupuncture is a way to create a sensation to trigger a specific physiologic reaction.

Out of our brain comes our spinal cord and out of this all of our nerves exit.

These nerves innervate our organs, glands and branch out to innervate our muscles and blood vessels.

A branch of these nerves innervate the skin and surrounding tissue.

By creating a sensation at specific points, we can connect to these pathways.

If we stimulate specific organs, glands, and muscles; we can create specific reactions.

These reactions can improve circulation and  towards musculoskeletal aches and pains.

Acupuncture can improve the circulation between the organ systems and glands.

The key to improving health is improving circulation.

Now to a deeper level…

The concept of circulation can apply to the vascular system, or the nourishment of our body called Blood or the Yin.

It also applies to the idea of metabolism, or Qi, or the Yang aspect, which is the cellular activity of our body.

This Qi and Blood flow through our body interconnecting all those billions of cells.

Some cells have organized together and perform specific tasks called organs/ glands/ tissues/ etc.

For example: The Heart is responsible for the propulsion of Blood through our circulatory system. It is an anatomical structure within the physical body.

The Heart is also related to the Mind or Shen.

The Universe connects with our Soul.

Our Soul inhabits a body and is reflected in our Spirit.

Our Spirit is what demonstrates our state of Mind; Happy, sad, angry, at peace, High Spirits or low Spirits.

The Space that our Spirit inhabits is our Mind or Shen.

Problems may arise from internal dysfunction of our organs, or the may transcend from outward sources and influence the organ system related to that situation.

The physical structure of the Heart is connected to the metaphysical concept of the Shen.

If there is a problem with the Heart it may be related to the cardiovascular system stemming from some internal physical dysfunction, and affect our mental state of mind.

It holds true that if a problem stemming from the outside world infiltrates our mind affecting our Shen, it will disturb the Heart.

Example: A dog waking you up at night can disturb your state of mind, or Shen.

You wake up cranky and disturbed.

If this were to happen night after night, for 30 nights straight without sleep; a person may have intense mental anguish.

Mimicking schizophrenia.

All related to the Heart organ system that we can influence with Acupuncture.


By stimulating specific points that connect with the Heart system, we can influence that system, both physically and metaphysically.

I may not be able to get the dogs to stop barking, but I can help how your body reacts to them.

Obviously they should talk to the neighbor about the dog (meditate if that fails), eat right, and exercise.

Acupuncture is not a magic wand, but it is amazing.
