Acupuncture, an alternative medical treatment method, uses fine needles to ‘puncture the skin’. The needles are inserted at specific points on the body, such as the wrists, neck, and backbone. According to traditional Chinese treatment methods, pain or disease is caused by a defect in the flow or quality of vital energy or Qi. When the skin is punctured at any part of the body, known as an acupuncture Meridian, the body will respond by concentrating energy around that point. The patient is then cured by balancing the energy flow.
Acupuncture can be considered a part of traditional Chinese medicine. According to Chinese medicine, Qi blockage is caused by a person living a poor lifestyle. Blockage of Qi can lead to stomach pain and liver problems. An acupuncture practitioner will know the exact point of the blockage and then insert needles to break the blockage by subtle electric charges that are created by the interaction between the needle and the minerals and salts within the blood. Acupuncture does not have side effects and is completely painless.
Acupuncture has been regarded as unique because it can elicit natural remedies and healing substances within the body. The insertion of needles can produce bio-chemicals that aid in healing. Bio-chemicals are thought to relieve pain. Acupuncture can stimulate the immune system to release antibodies, and fight bacterial infection, inflammation, weakness, and more. Evidence also shows that certain acupuncture points can be stimulated to release neurochemicals, which reduce pain and suffering and increase the patient’s happiness.
Acupuncture uses energy meridians to treat the body as invisible fields of energy. There are twelve main meridians that connect to the various organs in the body. These meridians are known as organ meridians. They connect to the heart, liver, kidneys, liver, bladder, spleen, stomach, gall bladder, and bladder. Other meridians are called circulation meridians or sex meridians. The triple warmers, which include the adrenal glands and the thyroid glands, are another type of meridian. These meridians have more than 300 points of acupuncture that can be used to insert needles depending on the patient’s infirmity.
Acupuncture has been particularly beneficial for patients suffering from low back pain and osteoarthritis. Acute pain associated with the conditions such as tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, and headaches can also be relieved by acupuncture. Because acupuncture may release peptides or opioids along the central nervous system, pain can be effectively treated with it. Also, the needles can cause a stimulation complex that alters the functioning of the neuro-endocrine systems. Many medical institutions are trying to make acupuncture a part of mainstream medicine.
