In America we think of healthcare and healing as coming from outside of ourselves, with interventions such as drugs and surgery taking over and acting upon the body like a mechanic working on a car. To understand acupuncture requires a different perspective; a view that takes into account the body’s wealth of internal healing resources. Acupuncture focuses on assisting the body to get more performance from its own abilities to heal. In short, it’s healthcare from the inside-out.
