What is Acupuncture Treatment?
Acupuncture is a system of healing which comes from the ancient art of traditional Chinese medicine treatments. It involves placing fine needles along specific points along your body’s meridian channels.
The idea is to stimulate the flow of energy, called Qi (pronounced “Chee”) throughout your body. This helps your body heal a wide range of ailments.
Is Acupuncture Treatment Safe?
Yes, in the hands of a skilled practitioner in a sanitary environment, acupuncture treatment is entirely safe.
Does Acupuncture Treatment Hurt?
Unlike hypodermic needles used to take your blood for testing, acupuncture needles are extremely thin.
Often, people feel very little when the needles are inserted into the skin. Sometimes, the needles tingle and you may feel some very slight pain.
In general, though, acupuncture treatment is followed by a sense of relaxation.
How Can Acupuncture Help Me?
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are many different ailments which can be treated with acupuncture.
These include drug abuse, asthma, alcoholism, stroke, feminine issues, gastrointestinal issues, sexual issues, and even smoking!
