Acupuncture is a science based on Energy management technique. There is a constant interchange of energy between the exterior and interior of the body through energy pathways embedded in the skin. These pathways carry the energy of the individual organs and create a balance in a healthy individual. According to the Chinese philosophy any disturbance happening in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual part of a person is due to functional disturbance of the internal organs. So whenever there is a disease which is a reflection of disturbance in the interior or exterior, the energy flow manipulation corrects the disturbance and brings in harmony in the energy levels which leads to restoration of health in a sick person.

Myths about Acupuncture

There are a lot of misconceptions about acupuncture, but the truth is that this practice has been around for more than 3,500 years and provides relief to people around the world.


Myth 1 : Acupuncture hurts – after all, we’re talking needles

Fact: Although we use needles, they are very slender and fine (about the size of a cat whisker). You may or may not feel an initial prick, sometimes described as a mosquito bite. Any discomfort will either fade on its own or ease up as your acupuncturist adjusts the needles. You should experience a Qi (pronounced “chee”) sensation, often described as heaviness, throbbing or an electrical sensation. That’s your body’s healing energy doing its work

 

Myth 2: Acupuncture is ancient folk medicine; no legitimate healthcare professional would recommend it

Fact: Acupuncture is a treatment option that many medical institutions recommend. Even the United States military uses acupuncture. Both the NIH and the World Health Organization (WHO) recognize acupuncture as a valid treatment for a wide range of conditions.

 

Myth 3: Acupuncture may conflict with medication, physical therapy and other ‘mainstream’ conventional medical treatments

Fact: There is no conflict between acupuncture and conventional medicine; they complement one another. Acupuncture works nicely as an adjunct to your conventional treatment plan.

 

Myth 4: Acupuncture is only useful in treating pain

Fact: It’s true that acupuncture helps relieve joint pain, including knee pain; back pain; headache; stomach pain and menstrual cramps. However, acupuncture is also used to treat nausea/vomiting, chemotherapy side effects, morning sickness, hypertension (high blood pressure), allergies, depression, infertility and other conditions.

 

Myth 5: Acupuncture has a lot of side effects and you’ll need time off work

Fact: Acupuncture has few to no side effects. After your acupuncture session, you can usually carry on with your day without any restrictions.

 

Myth 6: Acupuncture’s effects are psychological. It doesn’t really do anything

Fact: Acupuncture and its effects are far from psychological. Studies show that during acupuncture, our brains begin to release chemicals such as endorphins (natural painkillers) Acupuncture also has an anti-inflammatory effect and helps people’s immune system.

 

Myth 7: Once you start acupuncture, you’ll always need acupuncture

Fact: For most conditions, acupuncturists strive to improve your main problem so you do not have to return for more treatment. For chronic conditions, some people stay on a maintenance schedule, however, such as returning once a month, because acupuncture continues to help.

 

Myth 8: If you do not see results in one or two treatments, then you’re unlikely to benefit from acupuncture

Fact: The response to acupuncture is always an individual one. Some people respond quickly – within one, two or three treatments. Others need a full course of eight to 10 treatments. Acupuncture’s effects are cumulative, building with each treatment, so the acupuncturist will assess its effects after you complete a full series of treatments. Acupuncturists use a variety of styles and techniques, so if you do not see results discuss with clinician and seek his guidance to combine it with nutrition therapy and possible life style changes. Very rarely people don’t respond to Acupuncture.

 

Myth 9: Acupuncture may transmit diseases from one patient to another

Fact: The Always Acupuncturists will only use disposable needles and other materials for treatment. So there is absolutely no chance of any disease transmission from one person to another.
