In Taiwan and China today, almost a quarter of a million traditional Chinese medical doctors are also practicing acupuncturists.  The United States has over 8000 qualified acupuncturists.  Acupuncture Miami is a natural form of treatment practiced the whole world over.

A lot of people think that acupuncture is only good for pain relief where the needles that are inserted disrupt the neural vessels that convey pain signals to the brain. Acupuncture is actually much more than this concept.  It is created to answer all maladies of the mind and body and addresses the energy balance of the body as well.  Research has shown that acupuncture can treat many kinds of muscle, neurological , digestive, mouth and eye and respiratory disorders.  It’s quite potent for back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, migraines and headaches.

Acupuncture has also been known to help stop the smoking habit, lessen skin problems, treat asthma, allergies, insomnia, anxiety, constipation, high blood pressure, obesity and cigarette smoking.

Acupuncture treats all sicknesses by removing blockages in the meridians and virtually has not negative side-effects to the body.  The “side effects” it claims is deeper breathing, more energy and better sleeping.

Acupuncture uses flexible, fine needles which are as thin as human hair.  The needles are inserted into points that lie along principal energy vessels of your body.  The human body has an invisible network of energy.  The energy vessels of your body are called ‘meridians’ where chi flows. A meridian is often related with a particular major organ.  12 main meridians exist and each one comprises 350 and more acupuncture points.  Acupuncture points just lie a little above the meridians.  The needle’s purpose is to remove the energy blockage that will release chi and improve chi as well as blood flow.

Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM and uses specific of tongue and pulse diagnosis.  An acupuncturist will likewise observe the palpation of the acupuncture points or meridians.  A review of your medical history is also done by your acupuncturist.  The treatment process itself does not cause pain and the needle pricks more or less may feel like a tiny insect bite. Sometimes, a technique called moxibustion is added to the treatment to enhance the effect of the treatment.  Moxibustion is moxa set on the holding tip of the needle and lit.  The heat improves blood flow and takes away negative energy forces in the body.

The body has all the ability to heal itself. However, the healing process begins with an adept diagnosis and the correct treatment at the precise acupuncture points.  Acupuncture more often than not is combined with the other types of traditional western medicine.  When performed by a qualified acupuncturist, this treatment is 100 safe and for a lot of people, it is a very pleasant and enjoyable treatment.
