Acupuncture is an olden Chinese alternative healing procedure. This procedure aids in rousing the body to speed up natural general healing and enhance the working of its many inbuilt parts and systems. Acupuncture is a procedure that comprises of locating or inserting long, hair-thin needles and using heat or electrical stimulation on different yet accurate acupuncture points.
Concept Behind Acupuncture
Acupuncture acts in tandem with the energy channels (meridians) that are present throughout the body and over its exterior in normal patterns. These channels of energy are similar to the rivers traversing through the body, watering and nurturing integral cells and tissues. Any obstacle in the flow of these rivers of energy is like a dam that acts as a support to others.
In particular, meridians are affected by the acupuncture points. These points are located at various places on the body and are the center of associated treatments like acupuncture. The acupuncture needles break any obstacles of meridians, thus reinstating the normal flow of energy via the meridians.
Acupuncture has been shown since ages to benefit the body’s internal organs, especially rectifying inequities in digestion, absorption, and energy creation and transmission of this energy via multiple meridians.
Needling the acupuncture points basically kindles the body’s nervous system, producing chemicals in the spinal cord, muscles, and brain. These chemicals can either alter the feeling of pain, or activating the secretion of more chemicals or hormones that may affect the internal controlling system of the body.
A chief advantage of acupuncture is better energy and biochemical balance that can speed up natural healing capacity of the body, thereby improving general physical, mental, and emotional health.
Interior and Holistic Healing Advantages
The way health and disease are handled by acupuncture therapy is based on the perceptions and principles of essential energy, and energy balance and imbalance. The acupuncturist checks the general flow of essential energy via the many meridians.
Though it is one of the oldest oriental methods of healing, acupuncture is largely regarded as most useful healing procedure for many types of health issues by modern society. Acupuncture is useful not just for curing various kinds of ailments but also in detecting medical disorders that may require medical care in future.
Besides the ailments, acupuncture is useful in healing common problems and disorders like gastrointestinal (e.g., indigestion), respiratory (e.g., asthma), heart and circulatory (e.g., high blood pressure), gynecologic (e.g., PMS, menstrual), eye (e.g., acute conjunctivitis), mouth (e.g., gingivitis, toothaches) etc.
In general, acupuncture cannot only deal with pain but only various kinds of health problems and conditions.
