The History of Acupuncture:
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical system where fine needles pierce the skin to a depth of usually a few millimeters to a few centimeters with the aim of treating or curing diseases and disorders of the body. It has been a standard form of medical treatment in China for at least two thousand years.
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that in the normally healthy organism, there is a continuous circulation of energy or life-force. Where the energy fails to circulate as it should, vital organs may suffer from a deficiency or a disturbing excess of this life-force. Illness then results and this, in turn, can cause disorder in the circulation of this energy. Acupuncture re-directs and normalizes the flow of energy.
This is possible because the limbs, trunks and head are lined with invisible channels known as meridians which are related to the various organs of the body. On these meridians are located certain peculiarly sensitive points. A needle inserted at one of these points will exert an influence on the organ related to the meridian on which the point lies.
By pricking at a number of selected points, the normal circulation of energy is re-established and the patient is brought back to health. Acupuncture can be used to cure or treat a very wide range of diseases and disorders. It can also be employed to tone the body, improve sleep, relaxation and to give an enhanced feeling of well-being.
Reported benefits for the face include:
Acupuncture can also help smokers who wish to give up the habit.
Quitting smoking cigarettes, or taking other addictive drugs, can be difficult. As you may have experienced, withdrawal from an addictive substance can cause anxiety and intense cravings, and may disturb your eating or sleep patterns. The cravings and anxiety are the most difficult obstacles you need to overcome in order to quit successfully.
Acupuncture calms anxiety and gives you a sense of contentment. The endorphins that are released during acupuncture, the same chemicals that relieve pain, give you a sense of relaxation and contentment. This is a natural “high” that lingers for a few days, during which the anxiety and cravings will be diminished. This is the easiest time to quit.
Acupuncture is one of the most effective treatments for stress. Acupuncture does not simply calm the mind and relax the muscles temporarily but brings lasting balance to various systems of the body and breaks the cycle of imbalance.
Stress is a major reason for health problems, especially in large cities like New York. The mental strain and anxiety of a fast-paced work environment often leads to headaches, insomnia, muscle tension, panic/anxiety disorders, palpitations, fatigue, emotional disturbances, weight gain, digestive disorders and countless other problems.
Acupuncture is a safe and proven effective treatment of chronic pain. The exact mechanism of action in biomedical terms is not fully understood, but it releases endorphins (natural painkillers), interacts with the pain signals going to the brain, reduces inflammation and triggers a healing response in the body, which leads not only to decreased pain and inflammation, but healing.
Successful long term weight loss is incredibly difficult for most people to achieve. Many people have tried diets that may cause some weight loss and then they gain back the weight they lost plus some additional pounds. This is why more and more, people are turning to acupuncture weight loss treatments to try to handle their weight problem once and for all.
Acupuncture stimulates the body to release endorphins, the body's own "feel-good" pain-relieving chemicals. It may be that one way acupuncture weight loss treatments help control appetite is by releasing endorphins.
A benefit of acupuncture weight loss treatment is that unlike certain medications, there are no harmful side effects and no chance for addiction. It is a perfectly natural means of boosting the patient's weight loss efforts. If you've been struggling with a stubborn weight problem, consider acupuncture weight loss treatment to give your weight loss efforts a boost.
