Acupuncture & Moxibustion Treatment is an ancient Chinese method of treating different diseases by inserting one or more very thin pins at certain points on the body. It has been practiced in China and the orient for more than 5000 years.
Acupuncture & Moxibustion Medical science is practiced based on keeping or restore balance of vital energy in the body and treating accordingly. The imbalance can be caused by physical or emotional difficulties. The acupuncture & moxibustion doctor restores the balance by inserting fine sterilized pins in to the points of the channels of energy, through stimulating the body’s own natural healing mechanisms. So, Acupuncture & moxibustion is the process of encouraging the body to promote natural healing. The general theory of acupuncture is based on the principle that there are patterns of energy flow through the body that are essential for health. Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease. Acupuncture & moxibustion corrects imbalances of flow. Throughout its long history, acupuncture treatment has established a solid reputation as an excellent alternative for health care and is very effective to treat some diseases, where other methods of treatment could not achieve good result or failed.
Today, acupuncture & moxibustion is an effective, natural and increasingly popular form of health care that is used by people whole over the world. The modern scientific explanation about the effectiveness of Acupuncture treatment is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain, including endorphins, enkephalins and other neuro-transmitters. Either these chemicals will change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones that influence the body’s own internal regulating system. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
Acupuncture pins are so fine that there is no discomfort when they are inserted. The pins are usually left in for approximately twenty minutes to more. The doctor may also stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods, such as Moxibustion (a traditional technique that involves application of heat through the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb used to facilitate healing), Hammering, Cupping, Auriculotherapy and Electro-stimulation etc. in order to re-establish the flow.
This method of treatment is recognized and recommended by WHO and National Institutes of Health-USA as a scientific, free from side effect, complimentary, simple and very effective method of treatment for various diseases.
