What Is Acupuncture?
If you’re new to acupuncture, you should know that it is a major aspect of traditional Chinese medicine.
Essentially, acupuncture is a way to balance the life force flow, which is referred to as “qi,” and is seen as flowing through meridians, or pathways, in a person’s body. It involves inserting sterile needles into the meridians to re-balance the flow of energy.
The practice of acupuncture has changed over the years. Today, practitioners often employ acupuncture to help treat pain. It also has seen use in stress management and promoting wellness.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
The process begins by consulting with a professional acupuncturist about what you hope to get out of the service. You’ll describe what is troubling you, such as pain in a specific area of your body.
You can anticipate the acupuncturist may check your pulse, examining the color of your face as well as the appearance of your tongue. Then, to commence your appointment the acupuncturist will determine the points on your body to insert acupuncture needles.
Once inserted, the acupuncturist may move or rotate the needles (gently) or apply electrical pulses or heat to the needles to enhance treatment. You will remain lying down calmly while the process continues to rebalance your flow of qi.
Within about 15-20 minutes, the acupuncturist will remove the needles. Depending on the results, it will be determined if you require more treatment, it will then be time to set up a follow-up appointment.
