Acupuncture and it`s benefits
Acupuncture is an ancient method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and improve functioning. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points..The techniques used have yielded fantastic results for many patients worldwide and is recognized as being one of the most effective methods in the treatment of many difficult-to-manage medical conditions.
It is also widely thought that it decreases pain by increasing the release of chemicals that block pain, called endorphins. The Chinese origins of Acupuncture can be traced back in history for at least 2,500 years and is now more popular than ever throughout the world.
Acupuncture is often used for conditions in which conventional approaches have failed, or sometimes just to compliment traditional treatments.
There are over 1,000 acupuncture points on the body and when administered properly Acupuncture rarely causes any serious side effects other than maybe a brief stinging sensation, like a pinprick, during insertion of the needles and some people may experience a dull ache around the needle after it is inserted.
There are currently many hundreds of clinical studies being undertaken on the benefits of acupuncture with many of them taking place where it originated,China, it is clear that Acupuncture has been used successfully in the treatment of conditions ranging from back pain, neck pain, nausea, migraine headache, anxiety, insomnia and many others.
Acupuncture is very likely to be around for another few thousand years.
