Acupuncture is powerful medicine which aids in strengthening the immune system and serves to prevent disease, control pain and increase both the ability to function and quality of people’s lives. Acupuncture is a well developed whole health care system based on natural energetic laws.
Does Acupuncture Hurt? :
Most people are surprised (and relieved!) to learn that acupuncture needles are very thin – not like hypodermic needles which are big and hollow. An d there is more good news! The needles are usually inserted only several millimeters in depth – again, very unlike hypodermic injections. After the needle is inserted you may feel noting or sometimes a vague numbness, “heaviness” or slight tingling. The treatment is effective whether this is sensed or not. After treatment, many experience a euphoric feeling – and often profound peace.
Is it effective? :
Acupuncture is highly effective not only as a preventative medicine, but as a drug free treatment of signs and symptoms. Studies indicate that acupuncture influences the central and peripheral nervous system. Evidence shows it releases endorphins from the brain which make acupuncture particularly effective in pain control. Among a host of factors, acupuncture affects sugar, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels in the blood, the functioning of the gastrointestinal system and the activity of the endocrine system.
How does it work? :
As a system of medicine it uses natural laws and energetic principles rooted in Taoism with the application of thin needles, energy and pressure to specific points on the body. Each point provides a specific function in the body in regulating the free flow of vital energy for health and well-being. Acupuncture accesses the source of life itself.
Are there any conditions in which Acupuncture is not recommended?
It is strongly recommended that you first seek immediate medical attention at a nearby hospital for such conditions as difficulty in breathing or shortness of breath; dizziness; fainting or feeling faint; pain or pressure in the chest or upper abdomen; sudden weakness or severe pain; sudden bleeding; injuries; falls; suicide attempts; and when surgery, tests, x-rays and life support equipment may be needed. Acupuncture is not generally recommended for the primary treatment of severe infection, cancer, and heart failure. However, acupuncture has been found useful in studies for easing the effects of chemotherapy and of pain in advanced cancer patients.
Can Acupuncture be effective when other treatments have failed?
Yes. Each system of medicine has its own areas in which it has its greatest effectiveness. Acupuncture’s advantage is its diagnostic and treatment system with a broad and deep understanding of our energetic nature and the impact of energy in healing. It is not limited by western medicine’s assumption that disease is based in biochemistry. Acupuncture is powerful medicine, which works, despite belief or unknown factors.
