Acupuncture is a very old Chinese science, which was practiced

successfully and very popularly some 10000 years ago.

During that time, many of the ancient civilizations were practicing

this type of healing as one of the main medicine practices.

Acupuncture became popular in the US in the early ’70s.

Over thousands of years the Chinese have used acupuncture

for a variety of health ailments.

For many years, long before any one of us came to existence,

acupuncture was used as a health remedy for a variety

of ailments.

According to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine

(TCM), which is based on the concept that there is a continuous

flow of energy (Chi, or Qi in some books) that moves in the human

body, illness is caused when Chi does not flow properly

throughout the body.

This network is continuously “communicating” with the rest

of the body keeping all the functions in complete harmony.

In this way, the nervous, digestive, muscular, etc systems all

coordinate with each other through these network points.

Acupuncturists determine whether Chi is weak, stagnant or

otherwise out of balance, which indicates the points to be

stimulated.

Stimulating these network points actually promotes healing

of the body in the most natural manner. It has been proved

and documented throughout the history of science that

acupuncture has really benefited mankind far more than

all the medicine practices put together.

With traditional acupuncture, needles are inserted on specific

points along the body. The insertion of these needles stimulate

vital points that are found throughout the entire body. Any good text

on natural medicine and acupuncture can give you detailed

analysis of vital points and what the benefits /therapeutic

effects it will give when stimulated.

One of the benefits of acupuncture is pain relief.

Many people use this form of therapy to help relieve a

variety of pains caused by different ailments. When pain

medication is not enough or they simply do not want to

resort to medication, people turn to acupuncture.

Acupuncture is a great way for those who suffer disabling

and chronic diseases or ailments, to finally get some pain

relief.

Acupuncture has been regarded as a fast acting

pain relief mechanism that has a long lasting effect. It has

also been shown to promote and accelerate the repair of

tissues. There are some 160 plus conditions that can be

successfully treated by using acupuncture.

There are many benefits involved with using acupuncture

as opposed to other pain relief methods. Possibly the most

popular benefit is that it is drug free. Acupuncture does not

carry the side effects that some pain killers have, such as drowsiness.

Furthermore, it is much safer than other methods as you will not

have to worry about being aware of your surroundings or an overdose.

Acupuncture is used to improve blood circulation to the entire

lumbar region and spinal cord. The increased blood flow

provides greater nourishment to the whole body.
