What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves treatment by stimulation of anatomical points on the body, known as Acupuncture Body Pointsor Acupoints, with the help of specialized thin, solid, metallic sterilized needles. These acupuncture points are distributed along the meridians, which are interconnected throughout the body, and are over a hundred in number. Originated in China some 2000 years ago, Acupuncture developed in Japan, Tibet, Korea, and other East Asian nations with minor variations.

How does Acupuncture work?Treatment by Acupuncture is based on the theory that bodily ailments are a result of energy imbalance in the body. When the needles are used to stimulate the acupoints, the vital energy gets regulated and proper amount of energy flows to the proper place within the body. This procedure helps the body to heal itself.

Modern acupuncturists also use magnets, lasers, and herbs instead of needles, but the idea remains the same and the results are achieved in a more or less similar fashion.

According to the World Health Organization, the following are amongst a number of diseases that are known to be responsive to acupuncture: acute and chronic pain control, arthritis/arthrosis, anxiety, fright, panic, drug detoxification, frozen shoulder, persistent hiccups, constipation, diarrhea and abdominal distention/flatulence.
