Acupuncture – A Gateway To Health And Wellness!

 

Acupuncture
The main aim of acupuncture is to promote health and give relief from pain and suffering.

It is one of the three main branches of traditional Chinese medicine; the others are herbal medicine and tui na.

It is the method that has been in use over 2000 years.

 




What is acupuncture?


what_is_acupunctureIt is the practice of inserting needles into acupuncture points of your body to achieve pain relief and healing.

For thousands of years, the Chinese have developed this unique system of medicine. No one knows exactly how acupuncture came about. Some say that it began when the ancient medicine men of China observed that when sharp objects pierced the flesh the ailments suffered by individuals were relieved or cured. Over the centuries, the Chinese have mapped the channels of energy (Qi), which cover the body. Points along these channels were found to have specific health benefits when pierced by fine needles. There are in excess of 360 points on the 12 channels. During a treatment session, anywhere between 2 and 20 points may be punctured. In the main, acupuncture treatment is painless, although some patients do experience various sensations associated with the stimulation of the Qi energy.

Chronic Headaches


chronic_headacheIs Acupuncture Effective For Chronic Headaches?

A new study suggests that acupuncture may bring some added pain relief to people with chronic headaches.

The study, the largest to date on using acupuncture to ease headaches, adds to a conflicting body of evidence: Some research has suggested that adding acupuncture to standard headache medication brings patients additional pain relief; other studies, however, have found that "sham" acupuncture - using blunted needles that do not pierce the skin - is as effective as the real thing.

Cupping Therapy


Cupping_TherapyCupping therapy is the method of using glass or plastic cups to create localized pressure by a vacuum. The Chinese have been doing this since ancient times by using heat inside glass or bamboo cups. Nowadays, cupping sets use suction to create the vacuum. The vacuum inside the cups causes the blood to form in the area and help the healing in that area.

Ancient Chinese medicine have believed that the body contains "Meridians". These meridians are pathways in the body which the energy of life called Qi ("chi") flows through. It flows through every body part, tissue, and organ. Cupping therapy is mainly performed on one's back because there are five meridians on your back. When these meridians are opened, the internal energy is able to flow through the whole body.

Moxibustion


MoxibustionIn addition to needles being inserted in to the body, moxa and cupping may be employed as part of a treatment plan. Moxa is a herb that is both placed on the needle and burnt or used generally to heat a specific area of the body. Moxibustion is employed to strengthen the body's natural healing mechanisms.

Moxibustion can treat joint pain, muscular pain, and the pain of injuries, menstrual pain and even generalised pain. Some people who use it to treat pain swear it works better than the pain medicine that is available on the market today. Part of the reason moxibustion works so well for pain is that it increases blood flow to the painful area, which acts as an analgesic and promotes prompt healing. Back pain is often very difficult to treat, but you can use moxibustion to do it successfully.

Yin And Yang


Yin_And_YangAcupuncture, Yin And Yang And Modern Medicine

The basis of Chinese medicine revolves around the basic principle of yin and yang which are two opposing energy forces that reside inside the body.

Once the two forces are balanced then the body is able to achieve both wellness and health.

One way to reach this balance is through the practice of acupuncture which is the practice of placing needles into meridian points along the body.

Acupuncture also can involve the manipulation of the needles and the use of heat therapy as heat is supposed to allow energy to flow freely throughout the blocked body allowing for better energy and less disease.

After a successful career as a Home Economics and Health Education high school teacher, Kate discovered the age-old practice of traditional Chinese medicine which aims to utilise the body's innate ability to heal itself.

This compelled her to return to tertiary education to study traditional Chinese medicine with the aim to integrate both perspectives intuitively to help others.
