Zylla Acupuncture (click for pronunciation)in Tucson, Arizona is committed to healing. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is a science that connects and listens to the whole person. Life can be pain free and transformed through Acupuncture, Cosmetic Acupuncture and Tui Na. Originally used as a preventive medicine, it has now also emerged as a treatment of disease, chronic and acute pain, and an adjunctive therapy to western medicine.
Acupuncture is based on the concept that the body is regulated by meridians or pathways that contain energy called qi (pronounced “chee”). The Qi flows throughout the body, keeping the body in a state of homeostasis. It is when this flow is disrupted, symptoms arise due to the lack of flow and eventually disease and pain become present in the body. Acupuncture uses oriental medical theory and acupuncture points to correct imbalances in the flow of qi by stimulation of anatomical locations on or under the skin by a variety of techniques. The most common technique is stimulation of acupuncture points through the use of needles. Other techniques are cupping, gua sha, moxibusion, and tui na.
Acupuncture can be used for medical, cosmetic, relaxation or preventive purposes.
