Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny, sterile, disposable needles into precise points on the body to regulate bodily functions. This practice aims to enhance blood circulation, adjust the nervous system, and boost immunity. Existing evidence suggests that acupuncture may be an effective treatment for various symptoms.

Acupuncture works through a combination of physiological, neurological, and psychological mechanisms. While more research is needed to fully understand its effects, acupuncture is increasingly recognized as a safe and effective treatment option for various health conditions, particularly for pain management, stress reduction, and adjunctive therapy in integrative medicine approaches. 

There are many different types of Acupuncture
Traditional Chinese Acupuncture: This is the most well-known and traditional form of acupuncture. It involves inserting needles at specific points along meridians, or energy channels, to balance the flow of Qi (life force energy) in the body.

Japanese Acupuncture: Japanese acupuncture often involves shallower needle insertion and a more gentle approach compared to traditional Chinese acupuncture. Practitioners may also use palpation techniques to locate acupuncture points.

Auricular Acupuncture: Also known as ear acupuncture, this technique involves inserting needles into specific points on the ear that correspond to different parts of the body. It's often used for pain management, addiction treatment, and stress reduction.

Scalp Acupuncture: Scalp acupuncture involves inserting needles into specific points on the scalp. It's commonly used to treat neurological conditions such as stroke, Parkinson's disease, and multiple sclerosis.

Five Element Acupuncture: Five Element acupuncture is based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine but emphasizes the balance of five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water) within the body. Treatment aims to restore harmony and balance to these elements.

Subtypes of Traditional Acupuncture

Electroacupuncture: Electroacupuncture involves attaching electrodes to acupuncture needles to deliver a small electric current. This technique is often used to enhance the effects of traditional acupuncture and may be particularly beneficial for pain relief.

Trigger Point Acupuncture: This technique focuses on identifying and treating trigger points, which are tight bands of muscle that can cause pain and discomfort. Needles are inserted directly into these points to release tension and alleviate pain.
