Acupuncture in Atlanta | Atlanta Integrative & Internal Medicine


What is Acupuncture?

The basic concept behind acupuncture is that there are channels and conduits connecting pools of chi energy stored in the body called meridians. These patterns of flow were documented early in the historical text but the actual anatomical location of acupuncture points was consolidated later in Chinese medicinal history. Tiny needles are inserted into the skin and muscle at charted points in the human anatomy. These needles can stay in for anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes. How it actually works seems to be a mystery to the scientific medical community however many patients have felt noticeable and well-documented health-improving benefits of acupuncture in Atlanta. Even though you are being stuck with multiple needles at the same time many patients have found the treatment to be very relaxing.
