Acupuncture is a form of treatment which involves inserting thin needles through a person’s skin at specific points of the body and to various depths. According to research, it is one of the forms of therapies that can help relieve pain - and one that is used for a wide range of other complaints as well.

 

Even though the scientific side of the story behind acupuncture still remains unclear, many people believe that it is a technique which balanced vital energy - and others believe that it has a massive neurological effect.

So, what is acupuncture and how does it work?

Basically, acupuncture involves the process of inserting needles into a person’s body with the aim of balancing their energy. This can help boost wellbeing as well as potentially cure some illnesses. The conditions it is used for include different kinds of pain - from headaches to blood pressure problems as well as simple disorders such as whooping cough etc.

 

Acupuncture is also a form of traditional Chinese medicine, dating back to centuries ago where people used it in line with the harmonious balance based on the “yin” and “yang” principles of the life force known as “qi”.

 

As the science itself promotes, there are 350 acupuncture points in the body - and inserting needles into these points with appropriate combinations is how the technique establishes proper balance, curing various disorders.
