What is acupuncture?

What is acupuncture? It is a form of holistic health care, which is used to prevent for the treatment of certain diseases and relieve pain and beautiful patients for surgery. Research shows that this started in China and has been practiced for over 5,000 years.

The earliest account is this in the book titled NEI Jing, i.e. in the English section of the Yellow Emperor's classic of internal medicine. The content in this book date somewhere around 200 BC. At that time, do not use metal needles and instead that stone used moxibustion and herbs for the treatment of a patient.

Acupuncture and treated diseases by inserting fine needles into the skin on the anatomical points on the body.

The principle behind this concept is that diseases as an imbalance in your life force, also known as qi. It is believed that these 14 channels in the human body that are known, which branch of physical bodies flowing and functions as meridians. If it is this, blockade or disability in any of you, if you have a disease or a disease succumb.

The lack of balance in the qi can go one way or another because of yin and Yang. The person can only be normal, harmony between the two is that what is trying to reach of acupuncture. This can only by this stimulating acupuncture points are reset so that your qi can be customized, balanced and harmonised.

Apart from the use of needles, practitioners also use friction, heat, pulses of electromagnetic energy and pressure to promote these points to reduce the movement of energy in the body to health offset.

An example is Sonopuncture where transfers an ultrasonic sound waves these points in the body. Some use a tuning fork and other devices of vibrations.

Acupressure is another example, and here, the finger used to the pain. This can be used alone or with other manual therapies.

Pulses of electromagnetic energy be used because our bodies generate but electrical discharges affect the function, the growth and maturity certain types of cells tiny. By the insertion of needles in these areas, it stimulates and changes the neurotransmitters in the body, making the patient feel better after the treatment. This is also sometimes used for Diagnostics and testing.

Here is a list of some diseases where acupuncture according to the World Health Organization or the WHO is using. These include acute bronchitis, cold, cataract, toothache, gingivitis, hiccups, ulcers, constipation, diarrhea, headache and migraine, Meniere's disease, arthritis and more. Acupuncture is often for the treatment of chronic pain conditions and mind body disorders in the United States.

Acupuncture is not risk free. Haematoma can arise if the needle is that a cycle structure punctures. It is also possible that pneumothorax can occur when the needle is inserted too deeply. There is also the risk of HIV and hepatitis if the needle was not properly sterilized.

Now that you know what acupuncture is, must not forget that it is only an alternative and no adequate form of medical treatment. This means that you still by a professional in the medical field should be examined that the serious illness or a disease can determine.
