For over a decade, a lot of acupuncture clinics have risen to provide acupuncture services for individuals with certain health conditions. One of these conditions is the difficulty of women to conceive. Most people have no idea what the needling process of acupuncture is all about. This article will show what needling is all about and how you will feel during the session among others.
The needles used in an acupuncture treatment are entirely different from the needles used by hospitals and medical clinics. These needles are hollow tubes utilized to introduce liquid inside the body. The needles used in acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) are non hollow and solid. The western type of acupuncture uses really ultra thin needles. Skilled acupuncturists only avail of packaged, sterile and disposable needles and they are inserted into certain parts of the body connected to the ailing body part. When these sterile clean fine needles are in place, it may take 20 to 45 minutes for them to stay inserted in the body. Most people during this time fall asleep.
When the needles are introduced into the body, the patient often will feel a pinch sensation that is not painful at all. This odd sensation goes away quickly and there are some who don’t feel anything at all. One other odd experience is that the inserted needles help stimulate the production and release of endorphins. Endorphins are the body’s natural “feel good” chemicals. This is why most patients fall asleep. There are some who instead of feeling sleepy, may feel a tingly and warm sensation in the area of treatment. These are some of the effects you may experience when the needles are inserted. You should always ask your acupuncturist about any questions you need to know about acupuncture. If you regularly go for acupuncture therapy, you will eventually get used to these experiences.
Whatever therapy you undergo, it will take time to see their results. Talk to your acupuncturist in your initial consultation and know how many sessions you need to have to address your problem. Sometimes there is an initial treatment that may entail more than one or two sessions. A good acupuncturist will never give the patient unrealistic promises or any fast fantastic results. If you think that one session is all you need you might not get the best results your body needs.
Acupuncturists today have bins nearby to throw away the used needles after they have been removed from the body. These practitioners may utilize cotton wool to wipe the blood on the needled site. This occurs rarely since acupuncture does not entail bleeding although sometimes little blood may come out of the body. Knowing about needling, the sensations felt and the procedure itself you may now be able to feel a little bit more confident in trying this treatment.
