Acupuncture: What is it?
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points.
How does acupuncture work?
The classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up.
The acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions, and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body to correct imbalances improving overall health.
How often should I do acupuncture?
The recommended number of treatments for best results varies widely, based on the severity of the ailment as well as the individual response to treatment. To maintain the end results, periodic applications of acupuncture therapy are recommended. A checkup every three to four months can ensure proper flow of energy.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Fear of pain from acupuncture needles is one of the most common reasons people miss out on acupuncture’s health benefits. Generally, acupuncture does not hurt. Some people feel the needles as they go in, and some people feel nothing. Some common sensations that people feel are heaviness, achiness, electric pulse, tingling and warmth during the treatment.
