About Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture and how does it work?

Acupuncture is an ancient science that has been around for thousands of years. Although it can be a complex discipline to learn and practice, it can be easily explained. Its effectiveness has now become so recognized in the United States, that most major insurance carriers accept insurance claims and many forward-thinking doctors refer patients to knowledgeable Acupuncture practitioners.

When you come to A New Day Healing Arts, Licensed Acupuncturist Jacquelyn Lorell will be happy to answer any questions you have. With nearly two decades of experience, she has helped many, many Bay Area people return to optimum health. But just briefly you should know Acupuncture is gentle, safe and very effective for:

  • Relieving pain
  • Stimulating health
  • Reducing stress
  • Relaxing muscles
  • Balancing the immune system

The Principles of Acupuncture

  1. There are 14 major avenues of energy flowing through the body. These are known as meridians, much like the reference points on a globe. These meridians channel through every area of the body from head to toe, including through the major organs.

  2. The energy that moves through the meridians is called Qi (pronounced "chee" and formerly spelled as "chi"). Qi is meant to flow smoothly through the meridians to even the most remote cells.

  3. Think of Qi as "The Force". It is the energy that makes a clear distinction between life and death. When it is balanced, your health is good and strong. When it is blocked, you may experience pain, disease, depression, confusion or any other type of physical or emotional dysfunction.

  4. Acupuncture needles are gently placed through the skin along various key points along the meridians. This helps rebalance the Qi so the body systems work harmoniously.

"I choose to inhabit my days
To allow my living to open me,
To make me less afraid, more accessible,
To loosen my heart,
Until it becomes a wing,
A torch, a promise."
