Acupuncture treatment and its effectiveness

Acupuncture treatment is a method which spreads its roots of origin to around 2500 years ago in China. It has gained popularity due to its unconventional ways of treatment. It is based on the hypothesis that pain or illness is caused due to disruption of the pattern of energy flow in the body and therefore, acupuncture treatment aims at rectifying this energy flow. It does so by applying pressure or heat on specific anatomic sites which are commonly known as acupuncture points. It is believed to heal a myriad health issues including back pain, joint pain, neck pain etc. It is also said to cure mental issues like depression, anxiety and insomnia. Not only that, it has been proved to be a fruitful solution to the frequent nausea and vomiting tendencies experienced by patients undergoing chemotherapy and also the problems associated with infertility. Besides, some people use acupuncture to relieve from stress.

Known to be a single solution to most health problems, acupuncture treats people with different methodologies depending on the illness or the condition of the body. It uses different treatment procedures to cater to individual health needs. Most common methods include needling, heat therapy, manual massaging, cupping and applying natural and herbal medicines. Also, the frequency of therapy is customized at a personal level. For some people, two to three treatment therapies every week is prescribed which continues for several weeks while for some eight to ten treatment therapies suffice.


However, it must be noted that acupuncture must be carried out only under the guidance and supervision of experienced and trained practitioners as wrong treatment procedures can cause accidents resulting in serious injury and infection. Besides, certain acupuncture points especially near the abdominal region should be avoided during pregnancy. Therefore, though helpful and cost effective, little care must be taken while going through acupuncture treatment.
