Acupuncture Miami helps restore equilibrium to the body. The practice of acupuncture today is not much different than it was done in ancient China although some modern techniques have made acupuncture quite appealing and more efficient than before. This magnificent modality is very helpful in addressing ailments and pain. Acupuncture needles are applied at certain sites known as acupuncture points or acupoints. Wherever one is experiencing pain, there are specific acupoints that can address the pain. Acupuncture is extremely effective in treating many kinds of chronic pains that may have been caused by repetitive motion, surgery, injury or a medical condition. Some pain may be localized while others may radiate the sensation around the problem site or even to other parts of the body.
Studies record that acupuncture enhanced the chances of pregnancy for women undergoing IVF or in vitro fertilization. Though IVF may be quite a stressful experience, acupuncture makes IVF a procedure to consider because of its high chance of success thanks to acupuncture. Acupuncture is about the invasive application of needles, which at times can be scary for a child (this is mainly because of the needles), especially the autistic child; however, once the effect of the treatment begins to be felt, the child will feel at ease and sleepy during the whole session.
Based on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the heart and tongue are connected through energy networks called meridians, which are dispersed to all major body organs. TCM believes that acupuncture points on the tongue can have an effect on the other body organs. This belief can be seen as a way to find relief for the symptoms of autism of a child. Western medicine’s way of treating pain is by prescription or over-the-counter medications. We all know that these medications cause side effects and some can be habit forming. When used for a long time, these medications can become ineffective and large doses than are required for the same potency. These medications merely mask the problem; they never were meant to address the root of the problem. Acupuncture do not cause side effects and can promptly relieve the pain faster. The effectiveness of acupuncture lasts for a long time and sometimes become permanent unlike the fleeting effect of medications. Acupuncture can also be applied as a therapy for losing weight.
The aim of acupuncture is to treat the root one’s health problem, not simply the symptoms, to enable the patient to have permanent relief.
