Alternative Medicine - Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the oldest method of alternative medicine. It was first used by Chinese doctors. The theory behind it is that a life force flow through the body along a network of so-called meridians quite distinct from the nervous system. Acupuncturist corrects the energy imbalance by inserting very fine sterilized needles into the skin at specific points along the meridian lines. The needles are are then manipulated or, more rarely, a weak electric current is passed through them. When performed by a professional or expert, the procedure is seemingly painless.

This method is specifically used to relieve chronic pain and stress. First session will be painful but if you do it on a periodic basis to relieve pain and stress, it becomes painless as your skin allows to expand and accept pain.

Most of wellness centers, spa and massage centers now includes acupuncture in their services. This is because acupuncture relieves pain and helps our body to relax. Visit your nearest wellness center now and go for a round of acupuncture and see the wonder of needles.
