Acupuncture - Medicine in Ancient China

March 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 173

The history of acupuncture began 5000 years ago in ancient China. It uses small, sterile needles that are different from medical needles. Ends are not so sharp and smooth, so as not to injure the skin. They are so thin that you just push the tissue without stabbing it. Ancient Chinese acupuncture combined with herbal treatment is used in the most prestigious spas today.

Best effect is achieved by a series of sessions, although improvement may occur after the first procedure. This depends on the person of his health and problem.

The idea of acupuncture is to stimulate different parts of human body for therapeutic purposes. Usually the method is piercing the skin with a needle, but therapists use heat, pressure, rubbing, pulling or stimulation with electromagnetic energy.

Over the past 40 years, acupuncture has become well-known and reasonable treatment in developed and developing countries. Modern theory of acupuncture is based on laboratory studies conducted over the years. Acupuncture points have certain electrical properties and stimulating these points correct chemical neurotransmitters in the body. Physiological effect of acupuncture on animals is well documented, and the last 20 years is established as a practice to treat health problems such as osteoarthritis, vomiting in chemotherapy, asthma, back pain, enuresis, migraine, painful menstruation. Studies have shown that acupuncture can help with drug addiction.

What to expect: You'll be amazed at the ease with which small needles are driven. Putting them has nothing to do with the beating of injection. When an experienced specialist put them, you will experience a very light touch or are unlikely to feel their placement. You may feel a slight warmth, pressure, or do not understand that a needle is inserted. When you put the first needle, you will know that you fear nothing.

For what else helps: It can help relieve pain and discomfort under different conditions, skin problems such as rosacea, acne, allergies, arthritis, fibromyalgia, insomnia, joint pain, rheumatism, neurosis and other conditions. Needles can be placed throughout the body. Needles that are placed on the face helps to balance energy, improve muscle tone, remove bags under the eyes. In combination with herbs, healing and Oriental massage techniques, acupuncture will have a good effect on skin tone.

Who is suitable: If you are open to alternative medicine, and are willing to try a wide-spread non-surgical intervention to improve their health, do not hesitate to join the 15 million people who try acupuncture for the first time each year.

Who is not suitable: Pregnant women should first consult a doctor, this applies to each treatment and each drug. If you have a disease or fear that acupuncture can affect your current treatment or medications need to be consulted in advance. If you have any doubts regarding the experience and expertise of specialist acupuncture is better to stop treatment and seek other professional.
