Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Kyoungsook Sakumoto "Once an acupuncture needle penetrates the skin, the body responds by treating the needle as a foreign invader. This triggers the body's injury response. which will divert blood flow to the needle and increase circulation to the affected area. Blood flow brings oxygen, nutrients, and stimulates the immune system which treats the problem locally.

In order to perceive pain, an electric nerve signal travels from the affected area of the body to the brain. Many times after one injures a body part, they will rub the affected area. This rubbing decreases the brain's perception of pain by overriding the pain signal. Acupuncture yields the same effect but with longer results. When the injury response is triggered the body will try so sedate the patient by releasing endorphins. Endorphins provide the quintessential relaxation and sense of well-being that acupuncture is known for.

Most disease is exacerbated by stress. This relaxation allows the sympathetic aspect of the nervous system to get out of hyper mode and slip into the restorative aspect of the parasympathetic rest mode."
