What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine that has been used for thousands of years. Acupuncture uses tiny needles that are placed on the top layer of skin to help with many conditions. Over 3 million Americans use acupuncture yearly.
Acupuncture works by releasing the nervous system, or energy flow in the body. There are 14 energy pathways that are stimulated with acupuncture. Illness or other conditions can disrupt this energy flow. Placing needles on these pathways can realign the energy and let it flow freely throughout the body.
There are some variations of acupuncture, such as using heat, electrical stimulation on the needles, and even laser needles to further stimulate the nervous system in the body.
Health Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture is mainly used to relieve pain, although it has other health benefits as well. Health benefits of acupuncture include relieving lower back pain, relieving tension headaches and migraines, reducing pain from fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, dental work, and a variety of other sources. Acupuncture has been shown to relieve nausea and other effects of cancer treatment as well.
