There has been a trend toward finding holistic solutions to health issues for some time. The fact of the matter is that there has been an increasing wariness of Westernized medical treatments. This may be for good reason. People are becoming increasingly wary of the apparent over prescription of drugs that have their origins in laboratories.

The reliance on many of these drugs can mean addiction – and in many cases, they have some side effects that can negatively impact the quality of life of those that are taking them. However, acupuncture does not replace the need to consult a Western medical practitioner and usually is recommended as a complementary treatment for a variety of conditions.

Holistic approaches such as acupuncture are therefore attracting more and more attention and to boost natural healing of your body. Acupuncture has been practiced in China for well over 3,000 years to treat a variety of ailments. This natural treatment methods starts with a diagnosis of the underlying issues affecting the health of the patient based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The acupuncture treatment is based on rebalancing the energy that flows through the body – known as Qi. There are two approaches to rectifying imbalances in the Qi. The first of these is acupressure and the second, which receives more attention is acupuncture. Acupuncture consists of the insertion of sterile needles and facial needles into acupuncture points, of which there are hundreds that run along the 14 major meridians – which carry energy throughout the body. It is worth noting that the needles themselves are hair-thin and cause little to no pain when being inserted by a skilled practitioner of acupuncture.


Although the use of acupuncture is traditionally associated (at least in the western mind) with the relieving of pain it does have numerous other applications, such as relieving stress, and tension and helping to alleviate the symptoms of sub-par emotional states.

However, when it comes to the relief of medical conditions it can be used to treat arthritis, headaches and migraines, pain in the knees and back and help to alleviate the pain associated with menstrual cramps. Although research is ongoing there are indications that it can also help to control nausea and discomfort that is often the result of cancer treatments. It has also been claimed to help with immune system disorders and infertility.


It is worth emphasizing that acupuncture is not a replacement for other treatments. It is a complementary approach. A common effect of acupuncture makes natural healing process good and it is a deep sense of relaxation and a reduction in pain levels. It is tempting to rely on it exclusively, however, it should be used in conjunction with other medical approaches and body health treatments.
