Acupuncture in St Charles: Dr. Arun Mani who is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic and is certified in acupuncture, performs acupuncture therapies. Acupuncture can be effective in treating illnesses, injuries, chronic pain, addictions, anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, menstrual cramps, weight control, infertility and much, much more.
We often use acupuncture as an adjunct therapy to the comprehensive list of services. The proof of acupuncture’s effectiveness is in its longevity. According to Chinese Medicine, energy in our bodies flow through channels called meridians. This energy called Qi, pronounced as “chee”, can get blocked and out of balance, leading to illness. These blockages can be caused by external factors (such as cold, damp weather, physical trauma, etc.) or internal factors (such as stress, unhealthy diets, etc.).
The very fine acupuncture needles placed on identified points, assist to unblock the Qi and bring us back to balance. There is no western medical explanation for Qi; however, there is over 5,000 years of empirical evidence proving the effectiveness of acupuncture.
