Acupuncture Demystified

Acupuncture is one of the more misunderstood medical treatments available today. People are curious but wary of this age-old technique. It has actually been around for centuries and originated in the Orient. It is still used in Chinese medicine today mainly because it is so effective. Americans have been more reluctant to try Acupuncture though.

Acupuncture stimulates acupuncture points and by doing this, the flow of Qi is restored. The flow of Qi moves through channels called meridians and these can be blocked by various things. When the flow of Qi is blocked, it results in discomfort, pain or even disease. When it is in balance, then we feel healthy and whole.

Ancient Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been used to alleviate all types of suffering from migraines and sports injuries to post-operative nausea and Arthritis pain. Thin needles are inserted into acupuncture points, thereby stimulating these points and releasing the body’s energy to flow freely. Ancient Chinese doctors believed that humans sometimes got sick because the flow of Qi was blocked and began this practice centuries ago in order to restore the body’s flow of energy.

There are other benefits from acupuncture and it is completely safe when performed by a licensed clinician. When you think about it, this type of therapy makes perfect sense. Our bodies are alive with many systems and energy is always flowing from one organ to another. If that flow of energy, for instance, from your heart to your lungs were to be blocked, imagine the harm that could be done. By removing blockages, we make that energy flow freely and achieve optimal health.

Before there were ever doctors or hospitals, many cultures cared for the sick using the natural methods, treatments and medications available in their locale. Often, these included native plants. In Peru, Maca Root was used to cure everything from a headache to infections. In Mexico and other countries, various types of peppers containing capsicum are still used for sore muscles, aches and pains. Drink chamomile, ginger, or peppermint teas to cure your upset stomach.

Acupuncture is like that. It’s an all natural cure that can restore your good health without the harmful side effects of many medications. Roth Wellness & Chiropractic can provide you with this treatment and it is both affordable and safe.
