Greetings and welcome to Acupuncture for Life (AFL) site
Understanding the theory of Oriental
medicine and how it has maintained health of the human body for centuries basically is by virtue
of following the pathways of flow of blood in human body. Life exist based on this flow, diseases
appear due to lack or blockage of it, and illness is cured by itís emergence.
The knowledge of the pathways of blood flow that carries energy and cellular information in
Traditional Oriental Medicine is equivalent of the science of human Anatomy and Physiology in
western medicine. Oriental med by the use of acupuncture needles (that are as thin as whisker
of a cat) made of very sharp disposable stainless steel (one time use only), has access into the
channels of energy and information for opening the blocked receptors simply make the flow
smoother or more refined. Since disruption happens at an unseen level, the losses go unnoticed
until they have progressed to a very late stage of physical pain. Periodic acupuncture
treatments preserve health and prevent disruption of flow of life.
