Transcript: n very few cases, the acupuncture needles end up penetrating through the minute blood capillaries. While receiving the treatment, some of the patients might experience a temporary drop in blood pressure levels, i.e. suffer from low blood pressure, along with fatigue. In rare cases, the blood pressure might drop to the point that the patient ends up fainting also. The use of electro-stimulators in acupuncture might result in nerve damage, especially if the electricity is passed on for extended periods of time or is set at a high frequency. It is true? According to Traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of qi through channels known as meridians. Scientific research has not found any histological or physiological correlates for qi, meridians and acupuncture points, and some contemporary practitioners needle the body without using the traditional theoretical framework. Acupuncture Contours of acupuncture Conclusion What is Acupuncture? TheWorld Health Organizationand the United States'National Institutes of Health(NIH) have stated that acupuncture can be effective in the treatment of neurological conditions and pain, though these statements have been criticized for bias and a reliance on studies that used poor methodologyReports from the USA'sNational Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), theAmerican Medical Association(AMA) and various USA government reports have studied and commented on the efficacy of acupuncture. What people fink? With this work we learn that : - Acupuncture can be a good fight or a bad fight. - That is very important to some people who believes in this tip therapy. I've developed a beautiful and nurturing relationship with my acupuncturist, Mona Chopra and believe that she always has my best interest at heart when treating me. Over the course of the past four months, and seven sessions, she's provided me various resources like alternatives to coffee drinking and research on meditation including possible locations I might want to consider in New York. She's made recommendations for teas, books, supplements, and a myriad of health related products, some of which I've adopted into my daily routine. How does it work? Acupuncture is an alternative medicine methodology originating inancient China, that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles that have been inserted into acupuncture pointsin the skin.
