What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that has been a part of Chinese holistic medicine for over 2,500 years. It is based on the idea that the body is composed of a natural interplay of forces. These forces or energy fields, similar to those of gravity and magnetism, trace routes and paths across and through the body. When they get blocked or jammed up, extreme discomfort, pain, and other physical symptoms can result.
Acupuncture seeks to work with these energy fields. To do this, the practitioner inserts extremely fine tipped needles along the thresholds of these energy fields. These areas are known as meridian lines. By inserting needles into these areas at varying depths, the practitioner can loosen up and reorient the flows of these energetic forces.
Many contemporary studies suggest that what the ancient ideas of acupuncture explained as energy fields and forces of nature are in fact neurohormonal pathways. When you insert the needle in one of these nerves it stimulates the release of hormones such as beta-Endorphins. The release of this and other hormones might go some length to explaining the impressive treatment of symptoms that acupuncture patients have noted.
What Symptoms Does Acupuncture Treat?
Acupuncture is typically practiced as a form of pain and stress relief. It relaxes the muscle tissues and even has anti-inflammatory effects. Many patients also seek it out as a way to combat insomnia because it is so relaxing. Others claim that it helps with digestive, respiratory, reproductive, urinary and cardiovascular issues.
Modern research has shown that acupuncture may have anti-inflammatory effects because of its connection to the neurological make-up of the human brain. It is for these same reasons that research has shown it can release the body’s own pain relievers and, therefore, have a relaxing effect on the muscle tissue, blood pressure, and more.
Does Acupuncture Hurt?
Although the idea of willingly sticking needles in your skin might seem crazy, acupuncture typically doesn’t hurt at all. It is the job of the professionals at Matrix Dry Needle Physical Therapy LLC to ensure that clients feel pain dissipate rather than increase. Of course, there may be a feeling here and there, but it won’t be uncomfortable.
