Acupuncture is a practice rooted in Chinese medicine that is focused on treating pain and discomfort throughout the body. It is a treatment most commonly recommended for patients who have back, leg, neck, or joint pain, but it can also be helpful for patients who are struggling with conditions ranging from respiratory disorders to digestive issues. The provider team, including Kelly Kapsar, LMT, Susan Wellman, OMD, and Paul Kapsar, APRN, at Well Pathways in Las Vegas, NV, offers acupuncture and other forms of alternative medicine for patients.

Understanding “Qi”

To understand the value of acupuncture, you must first understand Qi (“chee”). This is the Chinese word for the natural energy that flows through every cell in the body through a network of channels called “meridians.” Your body stays in motion and balance because of the smooth flow of Qi, but when something interferes with it, whether it’s an injury, fatigue, a stressful circumstance, or disease, the flow of Qi becomes blocked and you start to experience negative symptoms.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

During an acupuncture procedure, your provider inserts sterilized, hair-thin needles into the skin at varied locations on the body. These needles help to activate the Qi in your body and help it flow smoothly as it did before. Through the unobstructed flow of Qi, the body has a chance to relax, heal, and become re-energized. In some cases, you may start to feel relief from symptoms during your appointment.
