Acupuncture is an ancient treatment known from a long time ago in China. This kind of ancient treatment is relatively safe and natural. It is based on a holistic approach where the emphasis is put on the cause and prevention of the illness.
This treatment works by inserting needles at specific points in the patient’s body. These needles are inserted up to a certain depth under the skin. The concept of how this method works is by finding a balance between the “Yin” and the “Yan”, or the “Gi” and “Chi”. These are also known as the body’s energy zones. There are 350 points from which this energy flow can be accessed.
It is believed that when a person gets sick it is because of an imbalance that has occurred in his body. Through accessing these points the balance is restored again throughout the body. Nerves, connective tissues, and muscles are stimulated during this process.
Some other conditions treated by acupuncture are:
· Stress and Anxiety
· Low back pain
· Migraine Headaches
· Weight loss
· Women’s Health Concerns
· Post Orthopedic Surgery
