Acupunture is a key component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has been practiced for centuries and it is based on the theory that energy, called chi, flows through and around your body pathways called meridians. It is a method of encourageing the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. Acupunturists believe that illness occurs when something blocks or unbalances your chi, therefore it offers a way to unblock or influence chi and help it flow back into balance with the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body and along meridians with the goal of achieving balance and assisting the self healing process of your body.
Acupunture is a system which can influence three areas of health care: 1. Promotion of health and well-being 2. Prevention of illness 3. Treatment of various medical conditions.
The World Health Organization recognizes the use of acupuncture in the treatment of a wide range of medical problems, including: Digestive Disorders: gastric and hyperacidity, spastic colon, constipation, disrrhea, Respiratory Disorders: sinusitis, sore throat, bronchitis, asthma, recurrent chest infections. Neurological and Muscular Disorders: headaches, facial tics, neck pain, rib neuritis, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, various forms of tendinitis, low back pain, sciatica, osteoarthritis. Urinary, Menstrual, and Reproductive problems. And acupuncture is particularly useful in resolving physical problems related related to tension and stress and emotional conditions.
How many Treatments would you need? Acute conditions are often resolved with a few treatments; however, the number of treatments needed differs from person to person. For complex or long-standing conditions, one or two treatments a week for several months may be recommended.
What does it feel like? You may feel a slight pressure when a needle goes in. Most people find that it does';t hurt. The area may feel heavy, tingle, feel numb, itch, or be a little sore. Providers believe that this is a sign that the energy flow or chi, has been accessed.
