Acupuncture: How It Works, Who Benefits and What to Expect?
Status: Say goodbye to pain with acupuncture.
Acupuncture originated 2,500 years ago in China, and has been effective in diagnosing, preventing and treating a number of ailments. It’s also used to improve the overall health of patients. Acupuncture is the process of inserting very small needles through a person’s skin at precise points. Our providers will insert the needles at varying depths to provide several therapeutic benefits, including pain relief to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.
How Does It Work?
There are pathways or meridians found in the human body. Through the 350 acupuncture points in your body, these pathways and energy flows are accessed. Our providers will insert tiny needles into these points using the right combinations. Disproportion of the forces causes various diseases. And, with acupuncture therapy, energy flow will be restored to provide the right balance. Your muscles, nerves and connective tissues are stimulated, improving blood circulation and increasing your body’s natural ability to fight pain.
What Can You Expect?
Depending on the type of the ailment, you will experience complete, partial or instant relief from painful symptoms once the initial treatment is over. You may feel relaxed or experience a sudden boost in your energy levels after the initial treatment.
Who Can Benefit?
Acupuncture before or after a surgery may benefit patients in alleviating pain. Studies show that there is a significant reduction in the use of strong painkillers required by patients following a surgery. It helps in lessening indigestion symptoms in pregnant women. And, if done on a periodic basis, acupuncture also benefits people suffering from respiratory conditions, neurological issues, gynecological problems, fatigue, emotional problems, asthma and sinusitis.
Duration of Treatment
An acupuncture session may last for 20 to 30 minutes. However, it may last a little longer depending on the ailment and the specific condition of a patient.
