What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the oldest known forms of alternative medicine popularly attributed to the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It entails the use of extremely fine needles to stimulate specific nerves and tissues in the body. The needles are sterilized before use to minimize the risk of infections and/or disease transfers.

Acupuncture has been a popular treatment for several conditions including:

  • Neck pain, backache, and joint pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Headaches
  • Dental pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Postoperative complications like nausea and vomiting
  • And other medical problems

Is Acupuncture a Surgical Treatment?

It is a non-surgical mode of treatment. It does not involve an incision or internal manipulation. Consequently, it is safe and relatively risk-free.

Does it Enhance the Effectiveness of Drugs?

Patients administered a low-dosage medicine with acupuncture showed a similar response to those administered with the full dosage. This enables you to prevent dependence on drugs and to control their side effects as well.

What are the benefits?

If you are experiencing persistent headaches, back aches or neck pains, acupuncture will be able to help you tackle it in a better way. In most cases, the underlying cause of pain relates to muscle tension, stress, and/or muscle knots. Acupuncture helps in stimulating these pressure points, relieving the stress in order to unwind the muscle.

Does Acupuncture help Weight Loss?

Acupuncture can help you achieve your target weight. Although its effectiveness in a standalone format cannot be judged, it does help you lose weight quicker when used in combination with diet and exercise routines. It holds massive implication for those suffering from obesity.

Does Acupuncture help overall Health and Well-Being?

Although acupuncture is popularly associated with pain relief, it offers other greater benefits as well. For instance, it helps you overcome depression and mood swings, seasonal allergies, migraines, digestive problems, minor heart problems, insomnia, and several other common ailments. It boosts your immune system naturally to help you remain fit and healthy.

It offers a holistic medical benefit to help you sustain a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle!
