How Does Acupuncture Work And Can It Help Me?

Aug 17, 2007
Let's start off with the fact that it is one of the ancient methodologies for over 5,000 years; it is a primary health care function in China. It is used extensively and I mean that anything can be addressed with acupuncture.

A variety of medical purposes start with prevention and treating to relieving pain or getting patients ready for surgery. Its main thing is on prevention but once something does happen to you, like a broken bone, things in combination with it can help you heal better. Muscles that has atrophied and that have started to exercise again there are various layouts that they use to gain their potency back.

How is it that they do this?

They use the chakra system that exists in each human being. There are seven main ones. It starts at the top of the head and goes to the groin area. Then if you look at the arms and the hands and the elbows and the shoulders that is a nerve juncture, look at the body, hips, knees and feet, the hands and the feet have pressure points on them for every organ in the body, every function in the body can be found there. The needles would then go in there.

Throughout the body are lines called meridians, let's say that you were an electrician and you ran a line and made a join an then you made two or three off of that junction that would be called a meridian. Where those meridians are, and in various combinations, is where you would stick the needle. And it will be painless. The only time when you may feel something is when there is an imbalance in the body in the specific meridian. The pain and the pressure that you are feeling is the pressure being released and normalcy being replaced. No pain, no gain and when the needle goes in and you feel the pressure the pain is being released.

You can use it for diet or weight control, either gaining or losing weight, repairing vision or hearing, stopping smoking, getting off drugs, it can be used to treat alcoholism and your body is a map and you can take an addicted person and there is something that is missing in their makeup that makes them need this and you can take this and override their own flight or fight mode even to overeat.

This is just a brief overview of some of the ways acupuncture works and some of the maladies that can be treated with it. Acupuncture is one of the most under used of all the holistic health methods.
