Acupuncture Orlando is an ancient Chinese medical treatment used by the Chinese as a remedy for a number of illnesses for millennia. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that good health is based on the delicate balance and natural flow of chi (meaning energy) throughout the body. A blockage or stagnation in the flow of the chi along the pathways called meridians results in emotional/mental distress and/or physical illness or pain. This blockage or stagnation can be removed by inserting very thin sterile needles into acupuncture points at various sites. The responsibility of the acupuncturist is to restore balance and correct chi blockage or stagnation, which will restore health and wellbeing in return.
The World Health Organization lists more than forty different health problems and conditions that acupuncture can be effectively utilized. Acupuncture Orlando is beyond mere pain management. It has healed not only physical but emotional disorders like anxiety and depression, as well. Some of the conditions which acupuncture has proven to be effective are muscle and joint pain; sexual problems, male and female reproductive issues; allergies; stress; insomnia; stomach pain; immune deficiency; hormonal imbalances; skin conditions; etc. Acupuncture is safe and effective and does not have any side effects. Oftentimes, a euphoric, light, relaxed feeling is felt during and after treatments.
Upon consultation with the acupuncturist for the first time, the patient undergoes a complete history taking of the medical problem, and then a physical and sometimes diagnostic exam. After exam, the acupuncture practitioner may “tweak” or manipulate needles at strategic points to generate the desired effects. Manipulating the needles to strengthen, nourish, or even to control the chi. Almost all people associate needles with pain. People who have undergone acupuncture have said that acupuncture is virtually painless. Tingling sensations, numbness or changes in temperature can be experienced during the treatment; this is a good sign that acupuncture is effecting beneficial changes to the body though it is not to say that not feeling anything during treatment means the acupuncture does not work, it does. People react differently to acupuncture therapy. Once the needles are removed, so too do the sensations cease.
The most common experience of acupuncture therapy is its ability to induce a sense of calm and wellbeing. Patients leave less stressful, with less discomfort and feel more invigorated than when they entered. Normally, though after 5 to 10 treatments improvements become more visible. Registered acupuncturists have been thoroughly trained and educated. They have studied and know human anatomy very well, and trained very well to insert and manipulate needles in a safe way. Needles should be clean sterilized and disposable to prevent the spread of infectious disease. If ever bleeding or bruising occurs, the extent of these occurrence should be very minimal and in no way dangerous to the patient.
