Acupuncture Terms for North Americans

Over the past few decades, Americans have become more open to the concept of natural and traditional treatments for ailments like chronic pain and infertility. One of the most common and most commonly misunderstood practices in this category is the traditional Chinese practice of acupuncture. Acupuncture is, at its most basic, the application of needles to certain key points in the body that are believed to alter the flow of energy and relieve pain. This practice is used to treat everything from cancer to back pain. But it is a mysterious and intimidating treatment. If you're considering acupuncture here are some terms you should be familiar with.

  • Acupressure - This treatment is frequently confused with acupuncture, but is quite different. An acupressure practitioner uses pressure from his hands instead of needles to relieve back pain, depression and even infertility.
  • Electro acupuncture - This practice involves sending a mild electric current through acupuncture needles. It's frequently used to relieve nausea in chemotherapy patients.
  • Meridians - These are the traditional Chinese medicine equivalent of neural networks through which energy is believed to flow. Meridians are where the acupuncture points are located and there is one for each major system or organ.
  • Qi - The Chinese belief that energy flows through our bodies and, when properly balanced, can bring tremendous health benefits.
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine - The theory of medicine, originating from China, which emphasizes the balancing of two diametric life forces, Yin and Yang.
  • Yin and Yang - The two opposing forces within each person that, according to traditional Chinese medicine, must be balanced to maintain good health. An imbalance of these forces is believed to be the cause of everything from arthritis to anxiety.

    Acupuncture is a holistic Chinese therapy used to cleanse the body, treat diseases, and reduce pain without resorting to medicines. Many people find that they can get a host of benefits from this alternative medicine, and they prefer it over modern medicines because they worry about the side effects of prescription drugs. Acupuncturists often provide a range of treatments that can heal the body. This includes using small needles to stimulate the body's nervous system, but many also use massage, herbs, acupressure, and chiropractic services. The types of treatments offered by acupuncturists depend on their training and interests. Some people claim that acupuncture and massage can treat everything from infertility to neck and back pain. Modern scientific research has not confirmed all of these assertions, but many people have found that they benefit physically and emotionally from acupuncture therapy. This is especially true for those in search of a natural way to relax and reduce pain. Traditional Chinese medicine may or may not remove toxins from the body, but it does help some people relax tight muscles and enter peaceful states of mind. You can find more information about acupuncture and other alternative medicines by searching the internet for practitioners in your area. If you have a serious disease, then it is important to meet with a trained medical doctor before making any decisions about your health treatments. You should also talk to several acupuncturists before you choose one. This will help you choose someone who knows how to focus on toxin removal, reflexes, pain management, or any other ailment that concerns you.
