Acupuncture Treatments


Acupuncture is a healing art of inserting a needle into an acu-point in a meridian to correct an imbalance of the energetic pathways relating to the organs, muscles and nerves of the human body’s surface. Acupuncture is a good alternative natural therapy that replaces most of the pharmacological intervention. There are 20 meridians in total in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM); Acupuncture and Moxibustion.The meridians connect the interior of the body with the exterior. There are 309 acupoints totally on the 12 Primary Hand-Foot Meridians. Most acupuncture points relate to the meridians, each acupuncture point has a defined therapeutic action. Acupuncture involves piercing the skin with very thin needles at specific points along the body. This stimulates the energy and begins the healing process. Those points are chosen according to Traditional Chinese Medicine which will promote natural healing of the body and improve its functioning.

When done by a trained professional, acupuncture is safe and completely natural practice. The needles used for acupuncture are very fine indeed, with a diameter as small as 0.2mm- almost like a hair. Fine imported needles are allowed to insert the body at particular points so as to redirect the energy flow. The needles are sterilized and never used more than once so they remain incredibly sharp- hence almost no pain as they pass through the skin. The sensation of inserting the needle may resemble a mosquito bite. The needle may be applied with an electronic or heat source to further stimulate the points.

Acupuncture has been proven by clinical use for thousands of years and it is a preferred treatment for many types of illness. The World Health Organization recognizes the use of acupuncture in a wide range of medical problems. I use Chinese acupuncture in another way, indicating that it balances the yin and the yang of the body. I have adopted and synthesized a general balance of all the channels, created by treating all 12 acupuncture channels, but alternating yin and yang channels by limb. It equalizes and tonifies the essential qi of the body, but in addition, it robustly circulates the qi. In this way the yin (the organs) and the yang (the structure) are brought into balance. In the taiji balance of both the primary channels and the eight extraordinary channels, we alternate chosen points on each limb ā€” one leg uses only yin channel points, the other leg uses only yang channel points; one arm uses only yin channel points, the other arm uses only yang channel points. In this way, the energy is forced to spiral through the body. This approach enhances the immune system, restores vitality, and promotes healing throughout the body. Patients feel the benefits immediately. Generally, people describe acupuncture as relaxing, providing an overall sense of well being.Some patients feel the benefit sometime over the next 24 hours, as enhanced vitality and well-being.
The successful curative measures as increased the important of acupuncture in order to treat most of chronic diseases.

Cupping refers to an ancient Chinese practice in which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced (by using change in heat or by suctioning out air), so that the skin and superficial muscle layer is drawn into and held in the cup. This treatment has some relation to certain massage techniques, such as the rapid skin pinching along the back that is an important aspect of tuina. Cupping is applied by acupuncturists to certain acupuncture points, as well as to regions of the body that are affected by pain (where the pain is deeper than the tissues to be pulled). Generally, the cup is left in place for about 10 minutes (typical range is 5ā€“15 minutes). The skin becomes reddened due to the congestion of blood flow. The cup is removed by pressing the skin along side it to allow some outside air to leak into it, thus equalizing the pressure and releasing it. In some cases, the cup may be moved while the suction of skin is active, causing a regional pulling of the skin and muscle (the technique is called gliding cupping).

The Benefits of Acupressure Cupping:

1. Safe: The needles are punctured under skin while the cups are just sucked on skin. Avid any infection or injury by needles.
2. Simple and Easy to use: Acupuncture needles use hand or electricity and need more experience or supplies while the cupping uses its negative pressure to stimulate acupoints and meridians and simple, easy to use.
Cupping is mainly recommended for the treatment of pain, gastro-intestinal disorders, lung diseases (especially chronic cough and asthma), and paralysis, though it can be used for other disorders as well. This ability to ensure nerve responsiveness creates a natural enhanced and accelerated healing response in the body.
