What is it?
Acupuncture is a very old treatment, dating back thousands of years. It is a type of traditional Chinese medicine that focuses on bringing the energy flow of the body back. It is based on the idea that there are blockages within the pathway of the body that stop energy from flowing through the body effectively. The thin needles are supposed to target specific points on the skin that restore the flow of the body’s energy. This increase in energy flow can also help with healing and make you feel at peace.
There are many possibilities as to why acupuncture is so effective. It is most commonly thought that it boosts the autonomic nervous system (the system which is in control of bodily function) and releases chemicals that stabilize blood pressure and reduce inflammation.
What Can It Be Used to Treat?
Acupuncture is used for a number of physical ailments, and can simply be used to give yourself an energy boost or spend some time in complete relaxation. Regardless of your reasons for undergoing the treatment, here are some common conditions that it can work on:
High or low blood pressure
Tension headaches & migraines
Lower back pain
Certain gastric disorders
Acupuncture has also been believed to treat other more serious ailments, but there is not enough substantial evidence to prove that it can as of yet.
