Acupuncture is now widely using for pain relief; some people even notice a difference in their condition after a single session of acupuncture. The treatment is not pain free. However, it is not as painful as ordinary injections or blood tests. As a guide, it is better to produce a little sensation to achieve improvement but some people feel nothing at all. In fact, many people find that acupuncture makes them feel relaxed and happy. Acupuncture is also associated with Cupping, Guasha (toxicscraping), TuiNa, Acupressure and Moxibustion therapies, which are almost painless manipulations, to improve blood circulation and remove blood stasis. These can be used for improve immune system, soft tissue/joints injury or relaxing therapeutic. After acupuncture, patients will feel relaxed or even slightly sleepy so it is not advisable for patients to undertake anything strenuous for a few hours after acupuncture treatment.
According to Chinese medicine theory, the body has 14 meridians (or channels). They form a network /or a highway system that carries and passes all information and Qi(vital energy) in the body. It is believed that Qican be enhanced, improved and nourished. On these meridians, there are many points (pressure points) that have important functions. Each point may be considered as a switch that controls energy flow. Direct causes of some illnesses are due to switches being out of control, such that Qi is blocked.
The principles of acupuncture are to tune and to repair those switches in order to bring the energy flow under controland thus treat illness. This is achieved by applying single-use sterile needles to these pressure points.
