God, quantum physics and acupuncture are overlapping right before our eyes. As believers in God, we have faith in the truth of the Bible. Our belief cannot be scientifically proven, yet we know it is true. As acupuncturists we experience the powerful healing that takes place with this ancient medicine. Again, we cannot prove how it works, only that it does.
At the same time, quantum physics tells us that the world we see, feel and touch is not what it appears to be. Science is finally catching up with religion and ancient medicine, as it acknowledges realities that cannot be measured with the tools of this three dimensional world.
God is the creator of the universe. With His word there was light, and all things were created. He gave us the Bible, our own instruction manual, to help us navigate through this life. The Bible describes life on earth and life in the heavens. It recognizes the physical world and the spiritual world. It tells us that we are subject to spiritual forces that we cannot see. Believers know this. Most importantly, the Bible commands us to “Fear the Lord”. This instruction is the key to a happy, healthy life, for it symbolizes our personal relationship with the creator.
The world is filled with believers and non-believers, those that devote their lives to an unseen God, and those that chose to put their faith in the physical, rational world of science. It can be difficult to make the leap from non-believer to believer. Ultimately faith is a choice. God does not force us into relationship with Him.
Good health and happiness are derived from a right relationship with God. Modern medicine, science and rationality provide temporary comforts, but fall short of the ultimate answer to why we exist, where we come from and where we are going. Interestingly, quantum physics and ancient Chinese medicine align this wisdom.
About 100 years ago scientists made a startling discovery. Very small objects (the things that make up atoms) follow different physical rules than large objects (like people and other things in the visible world around us). In our world of big things, we are familiar with the rules of gravity, speed, force and order. But on the quantum level of small things, like waves and particles of light, our rules don’t apply.
For example, experiments have confirmed three unusual properties at the quantum level. First, objects at the subatomic level can pass through solid walls. Second, two objects participating in a race can reach the finish line before leaving the starting gate. And third, an outcome of a test can be altered just by being observed by someone, versus not being observed. All three of these outcomes make no sense in our world of big things, yet are the normal way of being in the world of small things.
Our understanding of quantum physics is beginning to touch the surface of understanding the ways of God, and how He functions in the universe. God created the universe from nothingness and empowered people to perform miracles (events that could not be explained by the rules of our world of big things). We now have scientific evidence that the world is not what it appears to be, that miracles are indeed possible, and that there are universal forces at work well beyond our comprehension.
This leads us to the connection of God and quantum physics to Chinese medicine and acupuncture.
Acupuncture straddles the world of small things with the world of big things. It creates a small world environment within our big world bodies that results in healing from pain and disease. Acupuncture uses energy (small world) to alter our physical body (big world). While faith is not required for acupuncture to work, understanding plays an important role in this healing process.
Acupuncture resolves migraine headaches, cures insomnia, and overcomes unexplained infertility through a 2000 year old system of medical diagnosis and treatment. Practitioners feel the patient’s pulse and look at their tongue to determine the internal imbalances responsible for their health condition. Then they use tiny, sterile needles to activate “Qi” energy, which is used to restore balance to organs in the body. This restoration resolves pain and overcomes illness by correcting “imbalances” in the body.
Belief In The Unseen
For years the Western medical establishment dismissed acupuncture as “voodoo”. Now they regularly send their “difficult” patients to us, those that do not respond well to modern medical treatment. They don’t understand what we do, but they see our results and “want in” on the action. The general population also sees it. They come for treatment desperate for relief from pain and disease. And most of the time acupuncture helps them get better.
You cannot see Qi (energy) with your eyes, or even with an electron microscope. Tiny acupuncture needles open blocked channels, resulting in pain relief. Circulating qi through the body lifts stress and depression. Nourishing organs with Chinese herbs resolves anxiety, improves sleep and restores fertility. There is no modern explanation for this.
Someday quantum physics may be able to explain how it works, how acupuncture shifts the energy of a physical body to allow healing that could not otherwise take place. In the meantime, people come for acupuncture treatment based on faith, desperation or a combination of the two.
Putting It All Together
The bottom line is that there is more to this world than we can see. We can choose to embrace this reality or not. No one is going to force us to believe. But if we do, entire worlds of possibility can open up for us. The choice is ours.

I saw Dr. Jade to treat my migraine headaches. I was a skeptic about acupuncture. But now, I’m a true believer in the treatment. Dr. Jade worked miracles in relieving my migraines!! She’s worth her weight in gold!! Thank you Dr. Jade!
Turning to acupuncture was my last resort to battling insomnia. I had been prescribed two heavy sleep aids with no success. After the third appointment, I went from averaging less than 2.5 hours of sleep to over seven, without any sleep aids. I still go and pretty sure I wouldn’t be here today without success from Raleigh Acupuncture.
Raleigh Acupuncture was recommended by a friend after I mentioned my insomnia and dependency on a sleeping pill. My apprehension was short lived because of the results of my visits to Dr. Mark. With acupuncture treatments and Chinese herbs I was able to begin sleeping well and continue to do so. Dr. Mark is a good listener and encourages his patients in all health issues as well as the original purpose for treatment. Consequently, my knees are stronger and I’m walking better and with more confidence. I haven’t had the need for a cortisone shot in a year and a half. Occasionally, I would use a cane and it’s now somewhere gathering dust. Also, I had a persistent headache that my primary physician had no solution for, and after two acupuncture treatments it’s a thing of the past. Hot flashes were another issue that was treated successfully. I am so grateful to have found a knowledgeable and caring person to treat my ailments, many of which I thought would only grow worse as I aged. Generally, I feel healthier.
I was scheduled for IVF and they suggested I get acupuncture beforehand to increase my chances of success. I went to Raleigh Acupuncture for a month before the procedure. It was very relaxing and definitely reduced my stress levels. My uterine lining also increased more than ever before. The IVF was a success and I’m now pregnant. It was definitely worth doing the acupuncture. I did not want to have to repeat IVF for $25K a pop. And when I got morning sickness, they cured that too!
I sought Raleigh Acupuncture’s help in 2010 following a miscarriage. Happily, in 2011, I had a very healthy little boy. My son is 11 months old. I tell everyone how much you got me back on track after my miscarriage – it was truly amazing. I had a great pregnancy too.
My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for the past two years. I had undergone three rounds of Clomid with no success and the doctor was talking about IVF. We didn’t have the money for that, so we tried acupuncture. They took a lot of time to explain what they were doing with the acupuncture and Chinese herbs. I learned so much about my cycle and the reasons I was having trouble getting pregnant. They said it would take 3 to 6 months to get pregnant, and sure enough, after 3 months I was pregnant! It seems like a miracle to me. I’m so grateful to Raleigh Acupuncture. Thank you!!!
I would like to thank Raleigh Acupuncture for the wonderful and very helpful treatments. I had been seeing them for my insomnia, which was making excellent progress at the time and has since been cured. On a previous Monday I was involved in a minor traffic accident. Due to the stress of the accident on Tuesday I awoke in a severe flare-up of my fibromyalgia. The pain was so bad I took pain killers and stayed in bed for the day. The following day I had an appointment with Dr. Mark which I wanted to cancel. My husband suggested I keep the appointment and tell Dr. Mark about the pain. After our discussion, he modified the treatment he had planned for me and treated the pain. I came home, took another pain pill and went back to bed. The following morning I woke pain free and have been since, which is about 2 to 3 months. Thanks again Raleigh Acupuncture!
I became a patient of Raleigh Acupuncture in 2007. I did a lot of research prior to selecting them and I never regretted it. Over the years, I have been treated for various conditions – insomnia, an auto-immune disease, a herniated disk, etc. I have recommended Raleigh Acupuncture to various friends and family members.
I highly recommend the practitioners of Raleigh Acupuncture. I’ve seen them for several years and have always recommended them highly and without hesitation to many of my friends, all of whom have been equally thrilled with the care provided. They are genuinely interested in your health and general well-being, with a focus on getting you healed quickly and gently. My hot flashes are GONE! and the Chinese herbs for sleeplessness are awesome too!
I haven’t slept well for 20 years. That all changed when I was treated at Raleigh Acupuncture for my insomnia. They said it would take 12 treatments, so I took a leap of faith and tried it. I saw changes start to happen after just a few treatments. Over the course of three months I was able to sleep better and better. I weaned myself off of Ambien, and am now sleeping like a baby again. I never thought I’d see the day! It really worked. And guess what? I’ve got more energy now. Imagine that – a good night sleep gives you more energy! Rocket science! Thanks guys!
I suffered a serious concussion last year riding my mountain bike. After the accident I was getting severe headaches every day. They were so bad I couldn’t drive. I found Raleigh Acupuncture online. I liked their website and they said they treated post-concussion headaches. They got rid of the headaches and helped me with a number of other post-concussion issues like blurred vision, anxiety and insomnia. They really understood what was going on with me. I’m very grateful.
I’ve gotten migraine headaches for the past thirty years. They started as a teenager and have come once or twice a week since then. Pain medication used to work for the first ten or fifteen years, but since then nothing seemed to help. I mentioned to my doctor that I wanted to try Acupuncture and he recommended Raleigh Acupuncture. That was the best decision I’ve ever made. They not only cured my migraines, but got rid of a chronic neck pain at the same time. They gave me Chinese herbs as well, which I took for the eight weeks that I received acupuncture. They were highly professional, easy to talk to, and very informative. They explained everything they were doing and how it was working. Once the headaches stopped, I didn’t have to continue the herbs. It’s been two years and they have not returned. I go back for maintenance once a month. I’ll happily do that forever, not having to deal with migraines any more. I recommend this practice to anyone suffering from migraines.
My 14 year old daughter started getting migraines when her period started last year. They were aweful. A friend of mine suggested we try acupuncture. She went to Raleigh Acupuncture, so we made an appointment. The doctors there were so kind to my daughter. They made her feel safe and comfortable during the treatments. They cured her migraines in just eight treatments! She does not get them anymore. And her periods are so much easier than before. Thank you Raleigh Acupuncture! We are very grateful to you!
