Acupuncture is the usage of super thin needles that insert the body and targets certain areas in the body to provide good circulation and energy among stagnated areas in the body. In simple terms, our body is like driving on the highway, if all the mechanisms are correct like there is no traffic or accidents, driving on the highway is a pleasant activity. However, if there is traffic or an accident, it takes a very long time to get from destination a to destination b. In the same way, acupuncture provides the same benefits where your body’s circulation is going at a steady pace without any blockage. It guides the blood and other body fluids from going to point a to point b. And in doing so, the organs in our body have an easier job doing their part by providing the body its best efforts in keeping it running without breaking down.
There are many benefits to acupuncture. First of all, it is less costly than visiting a hospital or doctor’s office. It has no side effects because it is completely natural and in essence, better for the body than continuous intake of chemical drugs. Ailments that western medicine cannot treat are treated with Acupuncture. It is effective because Oriental Medicine is all about finding the root to the disease whereas Western medicine just sees the problem itself and doesn’t take into consideration previous medical history. Because the treatment plan is individualized for each person, a more accurate diagnosis can be found and therefore, getting acupuncture is effective.
