Acupuncture is Powerful Medicine|
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. Dating back over 3000 years as a primary health care system in China, acupuncture is widespread in Asia, Europe, and now in the U.S.
What is the Function of Acupuncture?
While the effect of Acupuncture is symptom relief, it is far more than this. Acupuncture has served over the centuries to intercede and re-attune a person to his source. Those who receive acupuncture often not only heal physically, but experience new and profound states of peace, clarity and harmony through treatment, which often has lasting impact.
How Effective is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is highly effective, not only as preventive medicine, but as a drug-free treatment.
Studies indicate that acupuncture influences the central and peripheral nervous system. Evidence shows it releases endorphins from the brain, which makes acupuncture particularly effective in pain control.
Among the host of factors, acupuncture affects sugar, cholesterol, and the triglyceride levels in the blood, the functioning of the gastrointestinal system and the activity of the endocrine system.
Acupuncture works with the body, strengthening and balancing energy. It improves circulation and allows the body to heal itself more quickly and more completely.
What Does Acupuncture Feel Like?
Acupuncture needles are gently placed at the specific gateways of the body. They may not be felt at all, or may be felt as a mild initial sensation upon insertion followed by tingling, numbness, ache or traveling warmth. Acupressure on these same points is often successfully used with children.
What Can I Expect With Acupuncture?
Most people are surprised at the depth of relaxation, the intensity of energy, and the sense of well-being and healing which occur from the rebalancing of energy.
Often relief from symptoms is felt immediately, although relief may occur in the following days (or weeks) depending on the severity of symptoms. You will find you will look forward to treatment for the many benefits that are received from acupuncture.
Many people who have lived with their condition for many years believe they will just have to make do. Others live with pain thinking that "someday" it will go away. Acupuncture has succeeded in many cases where other treatments have not. You can optimize your health.
