What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a treatment that promotes natural healing, reduces or eliminates pain, and improves the function of the body’s damaged areas. It is a safe and effective treatment option that is used mostly instead of medicine or surgery. When established medical treatments have failed, comfort is typically observed by acupuncture.
There are hundreds of conditions and diseases that a trained acupuncturist may effectively treat although pain and stress alleviation are the most popular reasons for visiting an acupuncturist. Please note that major diseases such as cancer, liver, lung, and heart, and brain-related disease are not treated by acupuncture.
An acupuncturist will first look for the details regarding your health. It is essential to inform your acupuncturist about your medicines and diseases if any. Be thorough and open to share your medical history with the acupuncturist. After that, your condition is being assessed thoroughly and a treatment plan is devised based on your needs. Small thin needles are inserted into the skin and tissues at precise places on the body are known as acupuncture points. Note that there is no material injected, and the procedure itself is relatively painless.
How does it feel when the acupuncture needles are inserted into the body?
You might not feel any type of needle insertion because the needles are small and gentle. However, faint, dull discomfort or a small tingling sensation is expected when a needle achieves its appropriate depth. This could indicate that the acupuncture treatment is effective and the acupuncture point on the body is being stimulated. Some patients experience this as a light electric sensation in the body.
Where to get the acupuncture treatment?
Acute and chronic injuries or conditions are effectively treated by incorporating acupuncture treatment. However, it is crucial to obtain this treatment from a certified professional in a safe and control environment. It is essential to get a consultation from your primary doctor if you have any medical concerns and continue the medical treatment as recommended by your doctor in case of ongoing medical treatment.
