Acupuncture originates from China and has been practiced there for thousands of years. There are over 1,000 acupuncture points on the body. These points are combined as “interwoven networks” to connect the body as an integrated whole. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through the patient’s skin at specific points on the body – the needles are inserted to various depths. One major hypothesis is that acupuncture works through Neurohormonal pathways. Basically, you put the needle through specific points in the body and stimulate the nerve.
Acupuncture is used to treat many different diseases, disorders and pain conditions. Acupuncture include: Tendinitis, Arthritis, Headaches, Chronic pain, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Respiratory disorders, Skin problems, Dysmmenorhea and Digestive disorders.
