Acupuncture

Originating in ancient China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is now widely practiced in the West.

 

It is a form of Holistic Medicine that involves pricking the skin or tissues with needles, used to alleviate pain and to treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions.

 

Acupuncture is considered to be a culmination of procedures. All acupuncture practices involve the stimulation of specific points on the body using a variety of techniques with needles. The type of acupuncture that has been studied most so far in clinical, scientific research utilized thin, solid, metal needles to lightly puncture the skin.

 

It is usually performed by hand, with a trained practitioner carefully inserting the needles into specific points in the body very shallowly into the skin. Normally about 10 to 20 thin needles are used at one time. The needles are small enough to fit inside of a normal-sized needle that would be used to take blood, making the process pretty painless for most people. Although needles are used in acupuncture, treatments are relatively pain-free.

 

Acupuncture is usually recommended as a complimentary treatment method — as something to try in addition to other pain management techniques, such as physical therapy, exercise and reducing inflammation through a healthy diet.
