Acupuncture Treatment from our Orlando Chiropractor
Your east Orlando chiropractor offers acupuncture as part of your total natural health program. Acupuncture is the insertion of thin needles just under the skin on strategic energetic points on the body. It is a fundamental part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The theory behind acupuncture is every living cell has a north and south magnetic force, just like the Earth. One force is positive and one is negative. Together, these forces create a force field of energy around the body that is called Qi. The Qi around the body is in constant motion.
There are different points on the body where energy from the Qi enters and exits, and by placing needles in these places, the energy can be manipulated and used to heal pain, as well as successfully treat and cure a number of health conditions.
Some of the health conditions acupuncture therapy is used to treat include:
- Muscle pain
- Mood disorders
- Asthma and allergies
- Cardiovascular conditions
- Urinary conditions
- Digestive conditions
- Injuries of a minor to moderate nature
- Inflammatory conditions
- Strengthening immunity
In fact, scientific studies have shown that acupuncture is highly effective for treating around 117 different health conditions. If your health needs improving in any way, chances are acupuncture in Orlando can help you heal.
There are a few different varieties of acupuncture, depending on your preferences and unique individual needs. There is regular acupuncture (which is the type associated with TCM), ear acupuncture, laser acupuncture, Korean acupuncture, Japanese acupuncture, French acupuncture, and even cosmetic acupuncture (for those who want cosmetic surgery results without the surgery). Your east Orlando chiropractor can offer you the type of acupuncture that is best for you.
Acupuncture Really Works
In TCM, the way acupuncture works is explained by stimulating an energetic point with a needle, which sends a message through the body along energy pathways called meridians. Meridians connect to every part inside you. If you are healthy in both body and mind, your Qi has to be present in abundance and flowing freely through all of your meridians. When your body is in this state, it is balanced, and balance brings health. If the flow of Qi is out of balance, it brings illness, depending on which meridian(s) is affected. Acupuncture restores balance to the flow of Qi in the meridians, bringing health back with it.
Recent scientific studies have actually shown this ancient theory is not too far off. The stimulation of the energetic points where the needles go actually releases chemicals in the brain that boost mood, improve immunity, reduce inflammation, boost fertility, and much more.
