What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture involves insertion of very thin needles into specific points of human body in order to elevate pain and other symptoms, from nausea to arthritis. This is one of the forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine and had been practiced in China for thousands of years. It had been scientifically proven that acupuncture stimulates the nerves in brain and spinal cord releasing “feel good” chemicals in order to achieve specialist’s objective. There a few styles of acupuncture besides needles, such as cupping, using glass cups, electro-acupuncture, using very low frequency electric current.
Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as chi or qi (chee) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.
In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body’s natural painkillers.
