Acupuncture is a form of natural medicine that has been used for centuries to treat many conditions. Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) help balance the flow of energy or Qi in your body, which helps promote healing and pain relief. Acupuncture is a safe form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). It’s used by millions of people to treat many conditions, including:
-Anxiety and stress
-Low back pain
Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years, but many people don’t know how it works. It’s a form of natural medicine that uses very thin needles to stimulate specific points on your body. The needles are very thin and they’re usually made of stainless steel. They’re not sharp, but they may feel like a quick pinch when they go into your skin. The acupuncturist uses these needles to stimulate certain points on your body, called acupoints.The stimulation can help block pain signals from reaching your brain. Acupuncture may also release endorphins (natural painkillers) in your body. The stimulation from the needles also causes tiny changes in how your body functions. These changes can help relieve many health problems, such as back pain and headaches.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to medication. It comes with many benefits, such as: reduce the chance of needing a surgery, reduce pain, increase mobility and flexibility, restore normal function to injured body parts and increase blood flow to the injured area. So if you’re suffering from any medical condition and are looking for an alternative treatment option, acupuncture is it!
