|How can Acupuncture give my body a healthy tune-up!
Acupuncture can correct the malfunction, by inserting
needles into acupuncture points, which will send a message of stimulation
or sedation to the organ or system causing the malfunction responsible
for undesirable symptoms.
A well- balanced, smoothly-operating internal radio
transmission system maintains the body in such good health that it is resistant
to invasion from noxious factors in the external environment. A well-balanced
system will also promote the rapid healing of wounds and retard the process
of decay or aging.
Is the treatment painful?
Since acupuncture treatment involves the insertion
of needles on various parts of the body, one might imagine a painful hypodermic
needle that they might have received at a doctor's office hospital. By
comparison, Acupuncture needles are very fine and the technique of a skilled
acupuncturist inserting needles could be compared to less than a mosquito
bite. Acupuncture is the safest and most painless treatment an individual
could have for correcting a health problem.
How safe is it?
It is virtually impossible to contact AIDS or VIRUS
or any other type of disease, when only disposable needles are used. These
needles are perfectly sealed, package and are never used on another patient.
They are "Disposable Needles" meaning exactly that, they are disposed of
after each treatment on every patient.
How many treatments will I need?
Each individual is different, depending on your present
health condition, age and how long you may have suffered with your present
ailment. Whether you are presently taking medication or have had radical
surgery. Generally speaking an individual's body doesn't become ill overnight,
and one cannot expect an immediate overnight cure. Acupuncture usually
requires a series of 10 treatments to correct a problem or more in chronic
cases. In milder cases it is possible that 1-7 treatments may be all that
is needed to recover.
Patience is a virtue and in most cases, patience
is all an individual might need to correct one's health problem. Acupuncture
has accomplished marvelous results when all other available methods have
failed. Fantastic results have been obtained by using acupuncture for various
health problems, as an anesthesia for surgery and many uses in veterinarian
medicine for animals.
Does it really work?
The answer to this question is very simple. "If acupuncture
didn't work and doesn't work and doesn't help, then why is it that for
the last 5,000 years, it has been used as a truly scientific medical treatment
in the orient and in other parts of the world. History proves enough!"
How does it work?
Acupuncture stimulates your body's own healing power.
"Hypocrites", the father of medicine pointed out earlier that "Nature heals
and a physician treats".
What this means simply is that regardless what kind
of medical treatment you receive for any health problem' the reality is
your own body heals or cures the ailment Medicine or medical treatment
regardless of which form can only help or stimulate your body's own natural
Acupuncture is one of the best and safest treatment,
with no side effects, with a 5,000 year old history to prove it. In the
human body there are twelve basic meridian lines (natural energies flow
in the body) and another eight which are extraordinary, two of these extraordinary
meridians being the most used of eight. These meridians are manipulated
by needles, moxa or other different types of instrument to create an even
flow of energy throughout the body.
The meridian system may be thought of as a radio
network in which the acupuncture points are transmitters and the vital
organs, receivers. The meridians are invisible, tangible lines along which
messages are sent from the acupuncture points to various parts of the body.
When one organ or body system becomes overactive or inactive, it upsets
the functioning of other parts of the body. The various parts of the body
are interdependent and must all work together harmoniously if good health
is to be maintained.
