Acupuncture is an ancient Asian healing practice that uses very fine needles, inserted into specific points of the body, to block pain signals and improve health. The principle behind acupuncture is how energy flows through “meridians” in the body. Scientifically, these meridians relate to intersections of nerve pathways and how natural pain-relieving chemicals are released in the body. The needles used serve to block these pathways and stimulate the release of these chemicals.
Chronic Pain Conditions Acupuncture Can Help
Acupuncture can be helpful in managing chronic pain from back or neck conditions. This Asian treatment method can also be used to manage arthritis pain, when medications and other treatments don’t achieve relief or when they are inadvisable for medical reasons. Conditions that cause chronic body pain, such as fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome can benefit from acupuncture treatment. But acupuncture can also help such problems as irritable bowel syndrome, asthma, anxiety, and fertility issues. Acupuncture is even used to manage cancer pain. Health professionals of all types are recognizing the benefits of acupuncture for a variety of health conditions.
What Happens During and Acupuncture Session?
You will be asked to lie on a surface, such as an examining table in a quiet room. Your practitioner will then insert the sterilized, fine needles into the area of the body that is related to your health problem. Acupuncture is generally painless, but you may feel a slight pinch as the needles are positioned. These needles will remain in place for a period of time, without discomfort. Your acupuncturist will determine the appropriate length of time for your needs. After time has passed, the acupuncturist will remove the needles, painlessly, and you can continue your day in greater comfort.
