I have already had 8 sessions of acupuncture and I can admit that this procedure works really great for me.The acupuncture sessions help me to get rid of lower back pain,eliminate insomnia,to get more energy,decrease migraine.I have made a huge research for two months and would like to share it.
No objection to the fact that acupuncture is used for several thousand years, has a long history of development.This is a learning method in different directions and approach. There are detailed maps of the human body with the biologically active points that really have a huge impact on the human body and help with variety of diseases. Mandatory requirement to perform this procedure is should be the highly qualified expert.By the way in China, this art taught for 20 years.But there is very interesting a learning process.
The practice of acupuncture is based on the theory of meridians. Acupuncture, according to this theory, qi (vital energy) and blood circulate in the body through a system of channels called meridians, connecting internal organs with external organs and tissues. Through acupuncture treatment stimulates specific points on the body surface, the points located on meridians that regulate the flow of qi (vital energy) and helps to improve the medical condition of patient. These points are called stimulated acupuncture points, or acupoints.
There are many biologically active points in the human body where the nerves come together with the vessels,and acupuncture specialist puts the needle exactly at this point. Acupuncture point of application causes a reaction in the body. This method is unblocking this point, and biological energy begins to flow through it, thus before the passage of this manipulation of the energy here was impossible. Thereafter, organ function starts to get a flowing energy and improve a medical condition.As a result of this method, acupuncture improves a stimulation of blood,blood circulation and metabolism,increases immunity and ability to fight various infections as well. Acupuncture also regulates the activity of the heart muscle, aligns vascular tone and blood pressure.
At the clinics acupuncture practitioner first selects the appropriate acupuncture points along the meridians different, that are based on the identified health problems. Then put in these acupuncture points are very thin special needles as I mentioned above. The needles are made of stainless steel and have a different length from 3.2 cm to 8.10 cm, all needles and sterile disposable. Selecting a needle, usually determined by the location of acupuncture points and achieve the desired effect. If the needle is placed correctly and in the required depth, the patient is usually (but not necessarily), feels pain, heaviness and numbness.In mostly,my acupuncture session I feel light pain.The needles remain in place during the injection of about 15-30 minutes. During this time, the needle can be manipulated to achieve the effect of toning Qi. Manipulation of the needle is usually associated with the rise, pushing, twisting and rotation, it all depends on the specific treatment of a disease.The whole acupuncture treatment includes 10 to 15 sessions.In addition,it is better not to take any medication while acupuncture treatment.
