Does It Hurt?
Unfortunately when many people think of “needles” they
viscerally recall experiences of needle-headed syringes
either injecting drugs or withdrawing body fluid.
Fortunately, this has absolutely nothing to do with
acupuncture. In fact, acupuncture needles have a
completely different design, are super thin and insert
without harming skin. The only medicine they “contain”
is the ability to stimulate your body’s inherent healing
capacity. Subsequently the placement of acupuncture
needles is typically painless and actually relaxing.
Is It Only For Pain Relief?
While acupuncture is most well know for its ability to
relieve pain, it is also an ideal way to compliment a
patient’s overall health. Many people continue care
even after their initial complaints resolve. Moreover,
conditions not associated with much pain, (and some not
helped by usual approaches) can also be effected
through Oriental Medicine. Digestive difficulty, infertility,
macular degeneration, asthma, irritability, and even the
common cold, are examples.
What Factors Determine Whether
this Type of Therapy Will Help?
There are 4 main factors that need to be considered
when determining the likelihood of success in each case.
1- How long you've had the problem.
2- Your overall health.
3- Your age.
4- How severe the condition is.
