About Acupuncture

Used in China over 2000 years ago and is one of the oldest medical procedures in the world.

Acupuncture is the basic foundation for Traditional Chinese Medicine and is based on the belief that there are two opposing and inseparable forces within our body. They are known as the Yin and Yang of the entire person. The Yin is representative of the cold, slow, or passive principle, and yang represents the hot, excited, or active principle. A healthy state is achieved by maintaining a balanced state of the yin and yang. This is done through vital pathways or meridians that allow for the flow of qi, or vital energy. The vital energy flow occurs along pathways known as meridians. These meridians connect over 2,000 acupuncture points along the body. There are 12 main meridians and 8 secondary meridians.

 

Commonly used to treat bodily pains, acupuncture actually has a wide range of uses that range from addictions, to injuries, to disease prevention. If you are thinking about trying acupuncture, the following will give you a better idea of its many benefits.

Acupuncture for Pain

Acupuncture is most commonly known to treat bodily pains such as muscular pains and arthritis. There are many types of arthritis, and each has a different acupuncture procedure. However, the healing effects may vary from person to person. Acupuncture for arthritis usually takes several sessions for the best results.

Other pain-related ailments that can be cured by acupuncture are severe headaches and migraines, acute backaches, shoulder and neck aches, leg pains, trapped nerves, muscle-related injuries, after surgery, carpal tunnel syndrome, sports injuries, menstrual pains, toothaches, abdominal pains, and rheumatic pains.

Acupuncture for Depression

Acupuncture is widely recommended for symptoms of depression and anxiety such as irritability, insomnia, loss of appetite, loss of interest in social activity, and suicidal tendencies. Acupuncture is thought to relieve stress and improve the flow of energy that may be causing depressive symptoms. Improvement in symptoms can be seen as early as the first session. Experts have found acupuncture to be a beneficial complement to other forms of depression therapy such as psychological counseling, and healthier than chemical alternatives such as anti-depressants.

Acupuncture for Insomnia

Acupuncture has become a popular alternative to common remedies such as sleeping pills. It works at the nerve levels, relaxing and soothing your senses. Acupuncture is thought to be a safer route for insomnia because it brings back your natural sleeping cycle through natural means and not through chemicals, which can turn into an addiction. Using acupuncture for insomnia usually starts working after the very first session. The treatment is usually stretched out for a period of time until your body returns to its natural sleeping cycle.

Acupuncture for Infertility

Studies show that acupuncture is a beneficial form of complementary therapy for women who are having undergoing treatments for fertility problems. Acupuncture is believed to relieve the anxiety of women undergoing fertility treatment. Also, acupuncture’s success in aiding fertility is more pronounced in in-vitro fertilization. In addition, the rate of miscarriages has been found to be lower for women who do acupuncture.

Other ailments that acupuncture has been known to remedy:

  • Menopausal problems such as hot flushes, infertility, and premenstrual tension.
  • Bladder or bowel problems, difficulty or pain in urination, and urinary infections.
  • Digestive disorders including nausea, indigestion, heartburn, and diarrhea.
  • Respiratory problems such as rhinitis, hay fever, prickly heat, rashes and ulcers, eczema, and some types of dermatitis and psoriasis.
  • Conditions of the eyes and mouth such as cataracts, dry eyes, conjunctivitis, retinitis and toothache, and post-extraction pains.
  • Heat problems such as poor circulation, stroke recovery, and hypertension.
  • Addictions such as smoking, drinking, or other harder drugs.

 

If you as suffering from any of the ailments mentioned above, acupuncture may just be the remedy for you. Acupuncture is harmless, and is known to promote health and a sense of well-being. It is a healthy, chemical-free alternative to traditional forms of medical treatment.
