Did You Know Acupuncture Has Been Used For Over 3,500 Years As A Soothing Therapy?
Today, acupuncture is used across the globe as an effective therapy for pain and to alleviate symptoms of a wide array of health conditions, including migraines and arthritis. The therapy is also successful in helping people quit smoking or overcome the aftermath of chemotherapy.
What Does Acupuncture Do?
There is a life-force-energy within the human body. It is called “Qi” (pronounced as “Chee”). This qi flows through the various meridians in our body. Each meridian has a corresponding organ or a group of organs. These organs require an optimal amount of qi. Too much of it, too little of it, or insufficient supply of it can lead to health problems as diverse as the benefits of qi.
It’s the same as something hindering the flow of a stream. When water is blocked, it starts gathering force though pressure. Eventually, there comes a point when the water spills over and floods the surroundings with its force – at times, killing the animals and plants around it in the process. Acupuncture keeps the stream flowing.
How Does It Work?
The process uses thin needles that are pierced into reflex points found along the affected meridians. This stimulates and disperses the qi, allowing it to flow freely.
Research reveals that inserting the needles into reflex points on the meridians stimulates specific brain activity. It releases endorphins that naturally relieve pain. Research also shows that acupuncture can be used to liberate muscular trigger points that may be the cause of myofascial pain and inflammation.
