The Popularity of Acupuncture Orlando Treatment

without comments

Medical science “experts” in the West often belittle traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).  Now the consensus is changing over its efficacy especially with acupuncture Orlando (a part of TCM), which is slowly but surely garnering more and more adherents in the Western world over time.

For over 5,000 years, acupuncture has been a treatment for various kinds of maladies by people in East Asia.  Contrast this fact with the existence of major Western places such as the United States (230+ years old), London (2000 years old or even Rome (2,700 years old) one can see how long acupuncture has been in existence and through several millennia has benefited the health of countless numbers of people.

Acupuncture and TCM is based on the notion that a person has life-giving energy that flows along energy vessels throughout the body.  When the energy vessels become obstructed life energy stagnates, the body’s health deteriorates producing symptoms.  The healing art of acupuncture is applied to remove any obstructions to energy flow.  The life energy flowing inside all human beings is called Qi or chi by the Chinese, which means vital force or vital energy.

The main problem for people in the West regarding acupuncture treatment is its necessity to use needles.  No one wants to be pricked with needles because they cause pain.  Almost everyone in the Western world have been exposed to needling in one way or another especially during vaccination.  However, the needles used by acupuncture is not as big as those used for vaccine shots.  The needles are as thin as human hair and non-hollow since they are not meant for injecting substances or for extraction or infusion of fluids in the body.  Compared to the standard hospital needles, acupuncture needles do not elicit a painful sensation.

Acupuncture needles are used to remove the obstructions that may have been caused by a number of factors.  Once the obstructions are removed, normal energy flow is restored leading to the treatment of the disorder and the relief of its symptoms.

Acupuncture can give so many health benefits to a person.  It is used for the treatment of  obesity, sinusitis, sciatica, headaches, acute and chronic low back pain, acute and chronic neck pain and body aches to mention just a few.  Researches all over the world have validated the efficacy of acupuncture in relieving the atrocious side effects of chemotherapy in cancer patients.

Once ridiculed by most mainstream Western medical science “experts” as quackery or pseudo medicine, acupuncture is now getting the respect it so rightly deserves.  A lot of mainstream physicians are now licensed acupuncturists and they are practicing a modern version of acupuncture called medical acupuncture whose theory lies more on medical and biological science rather than on the concepts of TCM.  The theory may be different from TCM but the results are the same as acupuncture treatment based on TCM.
