What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture has been used in China and other oriental countries for treatment of multiple diseases and musculoskeletal conditions for thousands of years. The acupuncture treatment involves inserting needles into acu-points of the body. The acu-points are believed to be the reservoir of natural energy, called Qi. By stimulating the production and movement of the Qi, acupuncture is able to regulate and balance the Ying and Yang of our body (opposing aspects of body function). In this way, acupuncture helps in restoring the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Depending on the disease or condition treated, herbology, moxibustion, cupping, infrared light, electronic stimulation, tuina-massage, or, guasha might be used to enhance the effects of acupuncture.
Will I feel pain in the acupuncture treatment?
The needles used for acupuncture are very thin (.25 mm in diameter). When the needles are inserted through the skin, patients usually do not feel any pain or feel only very slight pain. When the needles reach the acu-points and the Qi is stimulated by needle manipulation, the patient may feel some soreness, numbness, distention or heaviness around the acu-points, or feel a kind of sensation traveling up or down the meridian, the body’s energy-carrying channels. Such feelings usually are the sign of effective treatment.
What kinds of diseases are suitable for acupuncture treatment?
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), acupuncture can treat more than 120 common diseases and conditions. However, some diseases and conditions can be more effectively treated by acupuncture than others.
A partial list that might be suitable for acupuncture treatment follows:
• Cervical Spondylopathy
• Sprain
• Sciatica
• Arthritis
• Shoulder Pain
• Lo
