Acupuncture is perhaps the most famous therapy from Traditional Chinese medicine, used for centuries to correct the flow of chi (vital force energy) through the body. At Yggdrasil Naturopathic Medicine in Minnetonka, acupuncture is one of the effective natural treatments we are proud to provide to heal your body and restore optimal health and wellness. Many patients incorporate acupuncture to sleep, reduce pain, improve digestion, and more. Acupuncture therapy is safe and effective, helping you achieve a healthy lifestyle without relying on prescription medications and invasive procedures.
How Acupuncture Works
Acupuncture involves the shallow insertion of tiny, surgical-grade needles into highly specific points that are thought to lie along your body’s energy superhighways. This life force energy, known as qi (pronounced chi), must remain in balance and flow at the correct rate and quantity for optimal health. Optimizing qi flow regulates your metabolism, nervous system, connective tissue, and organ function.
From its beginnings anywhere between 2,000-5,000 years ago, acupuncture has not only stood the test of time, but thrived in it. We know now that acupuncture stimulates the nerves and connective tissue, which can balance communication between cells and their function. This results in reduced inflammation, improved neurotransmitter production, and increased circulation.
