What is acupuncture?

The practice of acupuncture dates back to 2,500 years in China. It is based on the theory of patterns of flow of energy in the human body (also known as Qi).The energy is highly essential and disruption in the flow of this energy leads to diseases. Acupuncture has the potential to correct this imbalance.  Acupuncture is the practice of inserting thin needles at specific points in the body. The belief goes as certain points in our body correspond to certain body parts. By stimulation of pressure at these points, the pain at the corresponding parts can be reduced. According to scientists, needles cause the body to release endorphins which boost blood flow and change the brain activity.

Acupuncture and treatment of diseases

Acupuncture claims to treat neck pain, muscle pain and menstrual cramps. The World Health Organisation (WHO) lists 28 conditions that are sometimes treated with acupuncture. Not only these but acupuncture can help cure migraine, dental pain after extraction, lower back pain. The WHO also claims that it can help treat many infections including the urinary tract infection.

What are the benefits of acupuncture?

Lifestyle change has been one of the prime factors of increasing health issues in today’s generation. When acupuncture is combined with weight-loss treatments it helps yielding better result within the first three to four sessions. Apart from these, acupuncture helps treat a range of disorders. They are:

  • Plantar faciitis
  • Different kinds of joint pain
  • Fibromylagia
  • Muscle sprain or strain
  • Arthritis and many other

Acupuncture treatment causes very less to no pain at all. The side effects of this treatment are also very few. It can effectively be combined with different treatments and help yield better results. However there are certain types of people who cannot undergo an acupuncture treatment like people with electrical devices or pacemakers because the electrical stimulation from needles may cause a problem. Pregnant women must always take medical consultation before the treatment. Although acupuncture is well equipped with healing properties, it is very important to know that acupuncture alone cannot help cure major diseases. It can just act as a stimulant to pain but the conventional treatment is the one that can help to improve the condition.
