You and I both know that it works, here’s further proof.
Acupuncture is a great medical procedure that can cure everything from pain relief to helping people quit smoking. It really does help, we both know that. It is a form of alternative medicine, and is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine. I understand it can be pretty intimidating at first as it involves inserting thin needles into your body at acupuncture points. The reality is, despite how painful it looks, acupuncture really is relaxing.
Read the proof below.
For more than 3,500 years, acupuncture has been providing relief to people around the world. Originally developed and practiced in China, this soothing therapy is today embraced by patients who seek to alleviate symptoms caused by ailments that range from arthritis to migraines to the aftereffects of chemotherapy. It has even been proven effective in helping people stop smoking.
Acupuncture draws on the belief that an energy called Qi (pronounced chee) circulates through our body, from the top of our head to the soles of our feet. When we experience good health, this energy flows unobstructed along pathways in the body called meridians. Each meridian is believed to be connected to a specific organ system, and when an energy flow is disrupted by a disease or an injury, illness or pain occurs. Acupuncture is then used to balance the flow of Qi and stimulate our body’s natural ability to heal.
