At this moment in time, the world now has increased its population of older adults and for the first time in recorded history, this sector of the world’s people outnumbers adolescents, young adults, and children. Along with medical advances people are generally living longer. Couple this with the fact that survival no longer depends on a hunting/gathering lifestyle people are now able to focus on living more healthy lives as they seek out more intellectual and tactile pleasures of life. And one of the factors leading to this healthier life is acupuncture.
The Smokey Mountains surrounding Asheville have long been known as a source for medicinal plants and the people who either practice this type of holistic treatments, remedies and alternative food sources have also welcomed energy healing Asheville because it is a perfect complement to natural healing and the overall health and wellbeing of the people here.
Asheville NC is a unique city located among the Smokey Mountains and just south of the eastern Tennessee border. The location of this city has brought many people here from all over the world and with it their cultures and customs as well. Combine this influx of outsiders with the mountain and Cherokee people who have called this place home for hundreds of years and you have now a diverse melding of cultures that support the Asheville acupuncture practitioners who have added to the availability of holistic medical modalities.
No longer do people have to depend on pharmaceuticals for relieving pain or invasive surgeries that can leave one to deal with side effects or long recovery time. Acupuncture eliminates the need for most drugs or surgery and is a non-invasive, and in no way is it a current "fad". This practice has existed for over two millennia and has gained its well-deserved recognition within Western medicine for its vast healing properties.
Acupuncture has proven to treat many illnesses, such as chronic back pain, depression, and even nausea associated with chemotherapy. Many people have turned to this healing modality because along with other advantages, the recovery time is far less, and with very minimal side effects.
This form of medical treatment has been used for over two thousand years, mostly in China and Japan. For those who have not experienced this unique type of energy healing, the procedure begins with an initial consultation with the licensed acupuncturist. This includes gathering patient information regarding past medical history, a standard physical, and then the areas which need to be addressed during the acupuncture session. Once the initial consult is complete and treatment determined, a series of thin, solid needles are inserted at different points into the body, chosen carefully by the practitioner from more than two thousand of these points that run along what are called meridians, or pathways based on fourteen pathways within the body that keep the body's energy, or Qi (pronounced chee), flowing.
