Acupuncture - An Outline: The procedure in which thin needles are inserted in the patient's skin for therapeutic reasons is called acupuncture, and is a traditional Chinese therapy which has been practiced for 1000's of years. A practiced therapist in acupuncture will help to lessen conditions in connection with migraine headaches, arthritis, chronic pain, postoperative pain, sleeping disorders and stress in situations where conventional medical avenues have failed. A pseudoscience and alternative medicine which is practiced around the world, acupuncture is a leading element of traditional Chinese medicine alongside things like massage (tui na), dietary therapy, exercise (qigong), bonesetter (die-da), cupping therapy, herbal medicine and gua sha.

Practiced for more than three thousand yrs, acupuncture was adopted as a methodology for opening up your energy channels to release the flow of life force (Qi), to assist with pain relief. Concentrating on stimulating the nerve endings positioned just under the skin surface, modern medical acupuncture therapy improves the release of endorphins to soothe pain around the body. No matter which option you pick, the benefits of acupuncture have been examined and acknowledged for a wide variety of medical conditions. Acupuncture is also useful for "relaxation" based procedures that are applied to alleviate the impact of stress related problems like depression, anxiety and panic attacks.

Before the first treatment session, you can discuss with a consultant acupuncturist your symptoms and you'll be asked a handful of typical questions concerning your lifestyle and overall health and wellness. This helps the acupuncture therapist to formulate a treatment plan designed exclusively for your needs. The recommended plans of treatment could be quite different even when there are two patients suffering from similar issues. It is feasible that you will be aware of another individual in Stubbington with quite similar ailments to you who's being given a totally different acupuncture treatment plan.

Once the treatment starts, small needles will be introduced into the body's meridian lines which are relevant for the sufferer's symptoms. Quite often these might be in places that do not, at first, seem associated with the problem area. For example, a needle could be inserted into a meridian point on a patient's hand to ease a migraine headache. A lot of the commonly used treatment points are found in the lower limbs and legs, therefore when heading off for an acupuncture appointment, wearing loose clothing to facilitate quick access is always wise.

These feelings of lethargy can often continue for an hour or more, therefore you need to factor this into any work plans.

The Credibility of Acupuncture

Countless scientific studies and tests have been held which have sought to prove or disprove the credibility of acupuncture as a treatment for pain and the findings of these tests have mostly been inconclusive. In the opinions of many medical professionals acupuncture is mere "quackery" with no place within conventional medicine and absolutely no scientific basis for why it is of any help to sufferers. The "placebo" effect is what others suppose is responsible, thinking that when there's been a positive outcome to treatment it is because the client believed that it was going to work, so it did. Therefore, the so called "cure" was psychological and not really medically based. Trials have also been carried out in an effort to bypass the "placebo effect", with one group of people treated with fake acupuncture treatments and the other group given the genuine article. Typically the outcomes of these kinds of trials have indicated that changes are more likely to be the placebo effect rather than any real medical benefit.

The truth is, as with most things in life, you will only find out if you try. Therefore, you have very little to lose by having a bash at acupuncture if you've got a health issue that conventional medicine has has been treating. Should you get some respite, regardless how small, even if it's purely attributable to the "placebo effect", then it could be regarded successful.

Acupuncture Points and Meridians

Acupuncture Needles Stubbington - Acupuncture Points

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the body of a human contains more than 400 acupuncture points and pretty much all of those points are located on one of the pathways (meridians) which carry the life energy (chi) and affect health and wellness. Though there are approximately twenty meridians in total, for the purpose of this brief post there are twelve primary meridians used in acupuncture that are relating to the internal organs of the body, these meridians are the bladder, the liver, the spleen, the gallbladder, the small intestine, the lung, the triple energizer, the heart, the kidney, the large intestine, the stomach, the pericardium, the other pathways are referred to as the "extraordinary" meridians. Each and every one of these points are distinguished by the meridian upon which they're positioned and their numbers correspond to their place on that particular channel. These acupuncture points are given some quite interesting names, for instance there are eleven acupuncture points related to the lung and their names mean Middle Palace, Channel Gutter, Maximum Opening, Supreme Abyss, Cloud Gate, Broken Sequence, Cubit Marsh, Clasping the White, Fish Border, Palace of Heaven, Lesser Shang, and they're numbered LU-1 to LU-12 (but not in the order shown).

Acupuncture - Does it Really Work?

Does Acupuncture Work?

Sufferers who are contemplating trying acupuncture therapy will clearly have certain doubts and queries about the treatment, and one of the most common of these questions is "Does acupuncture work?" It would be a brave person who would answer that categorically as it is a somewhat subjective query and is dependent upon who exactly you are asking. A number of acupuncture patients will say "it doesn't work" given that it failed to work for their specific condition, whilst other patients might proclaim "acupuncture is incredible and transformed my life", as it clearly had positive results on them. There is often considerable doubt about the veracity and credibility of any procedures, especially alternative and complementary therapies. Therefore these differences are not at all surprising.
