Welcome

Welcome, and Thank You For Visiting Our Website

lady's faceChances are: if you are reading this is because you are dissatisfied with the results you have been getting from Western Medicine, and you are looking at Acupuncture as an alternative treatment approach. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine have gained a lot of popularity in the past decade, and there are several reason for this phenomenon.

If you are trying to decide whether Acupuncture is right for you, I list here three points I believe to be the reasons why more people are using acupuncture to fulfill their health care needs: Acupuncture is natural safe and effective, Acupuncture works very well as adjunctive form of therapy, and Acupuncture has been shown in studies to be very effective in the treatment of pain.

Let us look at this 3 points further:

Acupuncture is natural, safe and effective. Acupuncture was developed by the Chinese thousands of years ago. Thru the insertion of small needles in specific points through out the body, the Chinese believed that an internal energy called Qi (pronounced Chee) could be manipulated and harmonized in order to relieve pain, enhance recuperative powers, and strengthen the immune system.

  1. Modern research has show acupuncture to be effective in the treatment of pain. Acupuncture treatments can cause the release of endorphins, natural pain relieving substances found in the brain and spinal cord. When a needle is positioned, the brain responds by increasing blood cell counts and various other immune system elements, and lastly, by activating neurotransmitters. Endorphins and enkephalins are well known neurotransmitters that stop pain and increase a feeling of well-being.
  2. Acupuncture causes the release of these natural, morphine-like substances from the brain. Aside from the well-studied effect on pain, researchers are still exploring exactly how acupuncture aids the immune system. Further research is being done in an attempt to find out the mechanism by which acupuncture stimulates the body’s immune response.
  3. Acupuncture is extremely safe. The risks of acupuncture are low if you have a competent, licensed acupuncture practitioner. Licensed acupuncturists are required to use sterile, disposable needles, which brings the risk of infection to near zero. Other possible side effects are bruising of the site, soreness of the needle site, and fainting or nausea if you have a preexisting fear of needles. The positive effects of acupuncture far outweigh the small physical discomfort that can be associated with the use of acupuncture needles. Some people say not to feel the needles at all and often fall a sleep during treatment.

Acupuncture produces a relaxing analgesic effect has the ability to stimulate the recuperative powers of the body. Since pain, and the stress that it causes in the body, is a main obstacle in the road to recovery, acupuncture is an excellent candidate to be used in conjunction with other restorative treatment modalities.

Acupuncture works very well as an adjunctive form of therapy. Studies have shown that when acupuncture therapy is performed at the onset of symptoms, recovery time is improved and pain is decreased.

  1. As an adjunctive therapy to other pain treatments, acupuncture therapy can help stimulate blood flow to the injured area, and can help produce valuable endorphins that may be used by the body in the healing process. These endorphins help reduce swelling which may reduce pain. Acupuncture can be used also in as an adjunctive therapy for post surgery recovery. Acupuncture Practitioners are able to use distal points, around bandage or casted areas, helping to promote circulation, drain lymph, reduce swelling, increase immune system and control/lower pain-levels. These treatments performed early in the recovery process can make it easier, if and when a patient starts physical therapy, by supporting blood flow to the ligaments and tendons, reducing stiffness and maintaining the maximum range of motion of the joints.
  2. At one time acupuncture was looked at as a form of anesthesia used for patients during operations or after traumatic injuries. Today modern practitioners see acupuncture more as an analgesic and pain reducer, which allows the patient to navigate through the difficult recovery process. And in some cases it has been shown to reduce the recovery period because its effectiveness at blocking pain.

Acupuncture is very effective in the treatment of Chronic Pain. Besides having an analgesic effect on the body, acupuncture stimulates the natural healing process in the body.

  1. One of the most reported effects of acupuncture, besides reducing pain, is that it produces a relaxation state similar to that achieved with mediation. Since chronic pain creates a state of stress and anxiety on the patient, a form of therapy that creates mental relaxation is of great benefit.
  2. It has also been reported that acupuncture treatments reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, and reduce the body’s biochemical response to stress. It is believed that this happens because of an increasing secretion of natural opiates in the body.

For a long time now the first choice in the treatment for Chronic Pain has been pain medication. But with the current concern over the addictive nature of painkillers, and the recent findings of a survey by the American Academy of Pain Medicine which shows that only 58% of the people using pain medication see a significant improvement on their condition. It makes sense to look to a natural alternative that besides offering a reduction in pain, can help promote the body’s own healing process. Acupuncture has a lot to offer to patients suffering with chronic pain.

Some of the Painful conditions successfully managed with acupuncture are:

• Headaches
• Sciatica
• Neck and Back pain
• Arthritis
• Shoulder pain
• Myofascial pain syndrome
• Carpel tunnel syndrome
• Fibromyalgia

Whether you believe as Chines Medicine explains, that there is an energy called Qi which flows through predetermined pathways (meridians) in your body. And that this Qi can be balanced and harmonized by insetting needles along these meridians, thereby bringing health and wellness to the body.

Or, as many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points, as places in the body where you can stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue. And that this stimulation appears to boost the activity of your body’s natural painkillers and increases blood flow.

The fact remains that: Acupuncture is Natural, Safe, and Effective, Acupuncture produces analgesic effects and stimulates the body in a positive way, Acupuncture is a good choice as an alternative mode of treatment for chronic pain, or even as an adjunctive form of therapy for those that are in recovery from corrective surgeries or other injury.
