Massage Therapy and Acupuncture Treatment

November 17, 2011

Some people, hearing the term acupuncture for the first time wonder what on earth this new medical treatment is. While some have never indulged in acupuncture services, this practice is hardly new. It has been in practice for hundreds of years in Eastern cultures, but for those who are uninformed, here is some information that will help take the mystery out of acupuncture.

Acupuncture, what is it?

Acupuncture comes to the Western world from Japan, China, and other Asian cultures, and it is endorsed by WHO (World Health Organization). It is traditionally used as a preventive medicine treatment, but can also be used to treat specific health conditions.

What Makes Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture is thought to help balance life energy, otherwise known as Qi or Chee. Along with that, the processes of life including the physical and emotional sides of humans depend on Chee, and it circulates through the entire body in what are called channels or Meridians. Acupuncture treatments are performed on the premise that health is created by allowing the free flow of Chee.

By lightly touching the acupuncture needles to the Qi energy, it is believed that congested areas of energy are allowed to flow through the body more effectively. Restoring health takes place when Qi circulates freely.

Acupuncture is Effective on

Acupuncture is used on a wide range of conditions, some of which are included below.

1. Conditions of the digestive, respiratory and circulatory systems.

2. Acupuncture services can relieve problems with reproduction, menstrual cycle and menopause.

3. Neuromuscular conditions.

4. Trauma and psychological disorders, depression and anxiety.

5. Addictions to drugs and other substances.

6. Insomnia

Acupuncture actually works to strengthen the immune system, promote well-being, treat and relieve chronic conditions, and help in personal growth by strengthening the core. People of all ages can benefit from acupuncture services.

Frequency of Acupuncture Treatment

The frequency with which you seek the help of acupuncture will certainly depend on the reasons for acupuncture services. Some people simply want to benefit from the relaxation that is provided during acupuncture treatment sessions. Less stress allow the individual to reduce worry, tension in the muscles, ease an overactive mind, and sleep better. This use of acupuncture can be achieved any time a person desires.

When the reasons include musculoskeletal conditions that result in pain it might be wise to avail of acupuncture services for several days in a row or at least every other day for a couple of weeks. Other conditions respond well to repetitive acupuncture treatments over several days until the symptoms are relieved.

Side Effects

Acupuncture comes with no side effects like those that can be seen when taking chemical based pain relievers which make it an acceptable alternative form of medicine.
