What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the insertion of hair-thin, stainless steel needles into the skin at specific locations to manipulate the flow of energy in the body. World famous Duke University and Integrative Medical Center in North Carolina, states that Acupuncture can be used on its own to treat common diseases, as well as a complimentary, or integrative medicine, to treat many life-threatening diseases including cancer. The National Institutes of Health states that Acupuncture is proven to be very effective treating pain, nausea, vomiting, asthma, menstrual cramps, and osteoarthritis, just to mention a few. Conventional Western Medicine asserts that acupuncture stimulates the nervous system, which releases chemicals that change the perception of pain and influence the body internal regulation system. 

Chinese Medicine says it restores the body proper energy flow, which stimulates its natural healing abilities.

Finding Health with Acupuncture:

Just as periodic checkups can help detect tooth decay before it becomes painful and lead to serious problems, regular acupuncture checkups can help identify, rebalance, and correct little problems before they become bigger ones. Acupuncture helps along the path toward optimal health and vitality, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Acupuncture is the oldest form of medicine, used by ancient Chinese cultures for thousands of years.

Acupuncture can be used for:

"Preventive Care", to help prevent and/or avoid health issues and body imbalances.

"Relief Care", when there are obvious symptoms and signs of a health problem. This type of care allows you to feel better faster. Each visit builds on previous visits, paving the way toward eliminating your initial problems and complaints.

"Corrective Care", once the signs and symptoms have been reduced, the visits are less frequent, this phase maintains and supports the changes you have achieved and provides a foundation for deeper healing.

"Maintenance and Wellness Care", This phase preserves all the progress you have made. Visits may be monthly, every other month, or seasonal. These maintenance tune-ups further strengthen your body's resistance, keeping you healthy, balanced and potentially free of illness.

An Acupuncture Lifestyle, combined with regular exercise, a healthy diet and other good habits, can keep you looking, feeling, and performing at your best. Here at Beach Life Wellness, our "Highly Qualified Acupuncture Physicians" will work with you analyzing the roots of your particular problem or problems and finding solutions for it, using a combination of effective acupuncture treatment methods and techniques to help you relief and/or stop the problem from the source, instead of temporarily mask it with dangerous drugs that can harm the vital functions of your internal organs.

Acupuncture Techniques

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

A complete system of medicine with it's own methods of diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and therapies. TCM views the body as an energetic system in dynamic balance. Qi, which can be translated as energy or life force, flows in a regular pattern through a system of Channels or Meridians to all parts of the body. When the flow of Qi is unimpeded there is harmony, balance, and good health. When there are Qi blockages, too much or too little Qi, there is an imbalance which can lead to disharmony and disease. Chinese Medicine helps to restore the body to balance and works on an energetic level to affect all aspects of a person: mind/body/spirit. The beauty of TCM is that it can be used to correct imbalances that have become illness and pain, or even correct imbalances prior to the appearance of symptoms, preventing disease. TCM is the longest existing, continuous, medical system practiced in the world, with over 3,000 yrs. of history.

Energy Status Analysis (ESA)

This system can be used by your acupuncture physician to analyze the energetic status of your acupuncture meridians to help reveal blockages in the flow of energy throughout your body.

Japanese Style Acupuncture

One of the few major styles of Acupuncture that is unique in it's efficiency and precision. Techniques are often directed at using the minimal amount of stimulation to get the greatest result. Acupuncture needles are fine and flexible, no thicker than a piece of thread or human hair.

Auriculotherapy or Ear Acupuncture

Points on the skin of the External Ear are used to diagnose and treat medical conditions of the body using needles, magnets, electricity or seeds.


Method of using glass or plastic cups to create localized pressure by a vacuum. Helps to release energetic stagnation and free the normal flow of Qi and blood.


Gua means to scrape, Sha means toxins. During session practitioner will use a special tool to gently scrape your skin and stimulate circulation.

Improves the flow of your life energy (Qi). It can help with chronic pain, poor circulation, fatigue, infections and emotional stress.


The process whereby a dried herb is burned indirectly above the skin over specific Acupuncture points, or the herbs are attached to Acupuncture needles and then burned in order to warm the needle. This is used to warm the Qi and the Blood in the meridians.

Tuina Massage

Tuina literally translates "to push- to grasp", and is the name given to Chinese Medical Massage. Tuina uses techniques and manipulations to stimulate Meridians, Acupuncture points, or other parts of the body surface so as to correct physiological imbalances of the body and achieve curative effects. Tuina is an important part of TCM.
