What is Acupuncture? Acupuncture for Heathrow Florida by Dr. Kathy Veon Explains It
Acupuncture is a fundamental part of traditional Oriental medicine, an expansive system of healthcare with a continuous clinical history of over 3000 years. Oriental medicine includes acupuncture, Chinese Herbology, Tui Na (Asian medical massage), dietary therapy, and exercise based on traditional Oriental medicine principles. These therapies work with the natural vital energy (Qi ~ pronounced “chee”) intrinsic in all living things to promote the body’s ability to heal itself. This healthcare system is used extensively by over one-quarter of the world’s population, and is rapidly gaining acceptance and scientific backing in the West.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
The ancient Chinese developed an understanding of Qi, and discovered that this energy flows along specific pathways called ‘meridians’. Each pathway is connected with a specific physiological system and internal organ. Disease is believed to manifest due to an imbalance or deficiency of the energy in the meridians and their associated physiological systems.
Acupuncture points are specific locations along the meridian where the Qi is easily accessed and can be manipulated. Each point has a predictable effect on the vital energy passing through the meridian. Modern science has been able to measure the electrical charge at these points, and is also able to measure changes in chemistry in the brain and body when the points are stimulated, thereby validating the knowledge gained and documented by the ancients.
Acupuncture points can be stimulated in a variety of ways. The most widely used method is inserting a hair thin needle into the point. This is usually completely painless; however a sensation of electricity or slight pressure can be experienced for just a brief moment. This is very normal and lets you know that the point has been successfully stimulated. Other ways of stimulating the points include: electricity, laser, touch or ‘acupressure’, massage, cupping, and moxibustion (heat).
Is Acupuncture Safe? Acupuncture for Heathrow Florida by Dr. Kathy Veon Answers This
Board certified and licensed Acupuncture Physicians have undergone years of intensive training and have extensive amounts of ‘hands on’ experience before being able to practice. Your safety is assured.
Acupuncture Therapy: What Can I Expect?
The amount of time it may take for symptoms or disease to be alleviated varies from person to person, and also depends on the specific condition, as well as how long the condition has been present in the body. Conditions that have arisen over the course of years may be relieved only with slow, steady progress, while other conditions can be rapidly alleviated in just a few treatments. Your Acupuncture Physician will be able to determine your expected progress after a more in-depth evaluation and diagnosis.
As is true in any form of healing, the patient’s attitude, diet, lifestyle and determination will affect the ultimate outcome of the course of treatment. Patients who are actively participating in their healing process will experience the fastest, longest lasting, and most satisfying results.

Dr. Kathy Veon Discusses Energy Healing Natural Therapies
Ancient Therapies for Healing in a Modern World
Acupuncture is an effective form of health care that has evolved into a complete and holistic medical system. At the core of this ancient medicine is the philosophy that Qi, or vital energy, flows throughout the body. Qi helps to animate the body and protect it from illness, pain and disease. A person’s health is influenced by the quality, quantity and balance of Qi.
Specifically, acupuncture is an excellent treatment for many modern disorders such as anxiety, depression, insomnia and PTSD. Not only can acupuncture help to alleviate the signs and symptoms accompanying these issues, it can address the root cause(s) and underlying imbalances that have contributed to the problem, safely and naturally.
Lifestyle modifications, food, herbal and nutritional healing therapies are also recommended, based on each person’s individual needs.
Homeopathic flower remedies are an alternative and complementary treatment often used for pain and emotional issues. They are made of highly diluted plant and flower extracts and are completely safe and gentle. Homeopathy is based on the belief that the body can heal itself, therefore, healing negative emotions can further and more deeply help the body heal itself from many chronic health issues.
Science has begun to understand the profound power of using homeopathic flower remedies to achieve radical healing results. For example, Quiet Mind by Lotus Wei can be used to attain crystal clear clarity, reduce ‘monkey mind’ and overthinking, reduce shoulder and neck tension and help you sleep like a baby.
Infinite Love by Lotus Wei can help to magnify unconditional love for yourself and others, gentleness, compassion, softness, attract love and affection while dissolving irritation, being hard on yourself, hard heartedness, feeling attacked, resentment, anger, jealously, codependency, past trauma and can help in breaking through old thought patterns.
Many other homeopathic formulas are available and are beautifully matched to each person for their own specific healing needs.
