Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that is a popular alternative form of healthcare. Practiced for thousands of years, its widely acknowledged benefits include pain relief (chronic back pain, migraines, etc) and alleviation from allergies, etc.
And although the medical community per se is not in conclusive agreement about how the therapy works, in a nutshell, acupuncture is a therapy that is based in herbal medicine, a well planned diet, therapeutic massage and exercise.
Miami’s Top Acupuncture Clinic receives many patients that make their first appointment more as a leap of faith after hearing about how this form of alternative medicine has helped so many people across the world.
Many are first time patients who are curious to know how a particular disease or pain can disappear simply by the insertion of tiny needles through a patient’s skin.
Others often have the misconception that acupuncture is based on creating or improving ‘mystical energy’ to solve ailments. This couldn’t be farther from the truth as acupuncture is based on real physical medicine that has its basis on a body’s anatomy.
Keeping The Body Healthy
In general, there are four aspects of the body that need to function well to keep healthy — the organ system, the Qi (which is oxygen) that is delivered to the tissues, the vascular system and the nervous system. Acupuncture impacts all four of these aspects.
When there is improper blood flow or impaired blood to parts of the body, that area cannot function properly, such as in the case of trauma or any internal disorder. Acupuncture therapy causes the body vessels to dilate and improves the flow of blood to the specific area of the body leading to pain relief and improving organ function.
As we age, we our bodies start to have reduced blood flow from the nervous system and what acupuncture essentially does is stimulate the release of endorphins to reduce pain by inserting very fine needles at specific points thus accessing the body’s Qi which then sends signals to the nervous and immune systems. These meridians or channels are through the blood, lymph or through the nerves where there are several acupuncture points.
At the same time, acupuncture also stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal itself treating an endless number of conditions either on its own or in conjunction with Chinese herbal medication. The points for acupuncture are very precise stimulating the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord and brain to change their experience of pain further triggering the chemicals to influence the body’s internal cellular system.
