8 Things You Should Know About Acupuncture

 

1. What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the most ancient and natural healing procedure that has been used for more than thousands of years. Up to this day, Acupuncture and Herbal medicine therapy is used as a primary medical tool in many Asian countries such as Korea, Japan, China, Vietnam and India to prevent and treat disease.

2. How does Acupuncture work?

Let’s say that you fall down and get a cut on your leg. It may bleed for a while but most likely your body will start its natural healing process on its own. You can do many things to help it heal better but your body has the ultimate power to heal on its own. In the same manner, Acupuncture treatment uses the body’s natural healing ability already embedded in you. It helps the body focus on the areas of illness and fasten the process of healing. Acupuncture points are carefully selected, inserted, manipulated and taken out with certain orders to bring out therapeutic results.

However, it is also used to bring out therapeutic benefits such as relaxing muscles, bring more blood and white blood cells to the injured area, decrease inflammation, increase range of motion, stimulation of the nerves to decrease pain or increase sensation, and promote blood circulation

7. Why are some points more sensitive than others?

Many reasons can allow this to happen. Different texture or the thickness of the skin cause different sensation to the patients. For example, areas in the head or the face may be shallower compared to the arms and legs. Usually the palm and sole of the foot have thickest texture in the body. Also, at time patient have more tension on certain areas than others. This allows the muscle to grab on to the needle stronger and may lead to discomfort for a short period of time.
