Benefits & Advantages of Acupuncture

 

 

There are 12 main meridians or channels of energy throughout the body and at least 400 different acupuncture points.  When there is a disharmony in the body, there’s either an excess or deficiency of energy (or Qi) in the one or some of the meridians and/or related organ systems.  The needles are used to assist in having a smooth flow through the meridians of what is called Qi in Chinese Medicine.  Any disharmony or dis-ease is a blockage or a deficiency, an imbalance in the meridians.

One analogy that can be used is like clearing the pipes.  If we have clogged pipes in our homes and water isn’t able to move smoothly through them, we know this creates problems.  Optimal health is when Qi is flowing freely.  Ultimately, the needles are stimulating the neurotransmitters and hormones, reminding the body how to heal itself, which can get out of whack as we live life and encounter internal, environmental and dietary factors.   When harmony in the body is reestablished through acupuncture, the body can then function properly and heal itself.  The body just needs a boost sometimes.

Has anyone had success with acupuncture for allergies/asthma?

I am thinking of starting acupuncture for my environmental allergies (pet dander, pollen, dust) and asthma. Has anyone had success with this? I would to love to hear someone's personal experience with it. Thanks!


Yes. Once, while having an extremely horrible asthma attack, I managed to get into my doctor's office. He told me to go to E.R., immediately. Instead, I went to my accupuncturist, from China, and, within moments, he had me breathing with NO problems!

I see a chiropractor that uses an acupressure method, which has helped me quite a bit.
