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.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions


What is special about Acupuncture?

One of the oldest healing Sciences, documented treatments dating back to 5000 yrs.
According to a British researcher (1993) total number of people taken Acupuncture treatment so far is more than the number of people treated by all other treatment systems put together.
Safe with no side effects.
Cost effective with no expensive investigations or tests required.
No hospitalisation and requires only outpatient treatment facility.

Acupuncture Needles Sizes
Does it hurt or is it painful?

Unlike the Intramuscular injections no medicine is involved to create pain. Needles are Hair thin & only 1/4 – 1/10 the thickness of Intramuscular needles and so very minimal discomfort.

 

Any Electrical stimulation or other methods involved?

Sometimes Yes. Some Acupuncturist use electrical stimulation to the inserted needles for some pain condition. Otherwise generally electrical stimulation is not required.


There is a Heating Herb treatment called Moxibution where a cigar like roll is lighted and used for heating some specific Acupuncture points which gives excellent results.

Sometimes a technique called “Cupping” is used where on specific areas of the body a cup made of glass/ plastic/ wood is attached by creating a vacuum inside using candle fire which produce a suction feeling over the skin.


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.

Acupuncture For Fertility And Better Health

AcupunctureToIncreaseFertility

Are you trying to get pregnant?

Acupuncture Will Help You!

Now a days, many women have turned to acupuncture for fertility issues and gynecological disorders. Acupuncture is one of the most popular forms of alternative treatment for infertility, and for good reason: Studies have shown it to be as effective or even more effective than infertility medications like Clomid at inducing ovulation. This is remarkable because ovulation disorders are the number one cause of fertility issues. In addition, acupuncture helps improve uterine blood-flow, improve quality of eggs and sperm, and it balances hormones. It does all this while reducing stress, which is essential, as increased levels of the stress hormone cortisol are known to inhibit pregnancy. There are a variety of factors that go into infertility and we specialize in assisting both men and women in overcoming fertility set backs in a natural way.

According to Acupuncture, we have several rivers in the body called meridians in which vital life energy, or qi, flows. An imbalance in these rivers can cause the qi (chi) to back up or even stop flowing, and cause the body to experience physical and emotional illness. By placing needles in specific points, Acupuncturists are able to reestablish the free flow of the vital life energy and coax the body back into balance. From a medical perspective, acupuncture causes the body to release hormones and blood cells that help regulate body processes related to things like reproduction. No matter which way you look at it, acupuncture has been shown to be a safe, effective, and drug free treatment for infertility.

we recommend a course of fertility acupuncture treatment for at least 3 months before you try to conceive, either through natural or assisted.

I sincerely pray to God to give her enough strength and support to extend her services to all needy people.

Top 10 Conditions We Treat Most Frequently – Chennai Jayanth Acupuncture

Top 10 Conditions We Treat Most Frequently

ChennaiJayanthAcupuncture

The Top 10 Conditions We Treat Most Frequently – Chennai Jayanth Acupuncture

Sometimes people ask us what health conditions we treat most frequently at Chennai Jayanth Acupuncture, or how acupuncture can help them. It’s also good for people to know that they aren’t alone with their health challenges, that these conditions are quite common and that we are experienced at helping people with these every day.

Here are the conditions that people seek acupuncture for most commonly in our practice, all of which tend to get good results when received with the frequency recommended by us

1
IVF IUI Support – Acupuncture Used as a complementary form of treatment for women undergoing other fertility treatments like IVF, IUI and ICSI, acupuncture has been proven to be especially beneficial. And acupuncture works by helping women stay more relaxed through stressful fertility treatments. In particular, studies have shown that acupuncture definitely increases the rate of pregnancy in women undergoing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).

2
Infertility – So many hopeful parents-to-be come to us seeking help with fertility. Acupuncture helps to gently regulate hormones and can be used as a stand alone treatment or concurrently with fertility treatments such as Clomid, IUI and IVF to boost chances of conceiving. It’s also beneficial for stress reduction and overall health, and can relieve the uncomfortable side-effects of fertility medications. Some of our patients decide to begin working on fertility before they try to conceive, while others decide to give acupuncture a try after they’ve been trying for awhile. No matter the situation, we’ll do our best to help. We’re delighted to have seen many of our patients become pregnant naturally and go on to have healthy babies!

3
Headaches & Migraines – We’ve seen many patients who were experiencing debilitating migraines experience positively dramatic results with acupuncture. Some patients who have missed days of work or leisure time, forced to go lay down in a quiet dark room, have been able to avoid those types of days and live happier, more productive lives, when they receive acupuncture on a regular basis. Acupuncture can help reduce the frequency and severity of migraines and other headaches, such as tension headaches and sinus headaches, as well.

4
Musculoskeletal pain conditions (neck, jaw/TMJ, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, finger/thumb, carpal tunnel, low back, sciatica, hip, knee, ankle, foot/plantar fasciatis, toe and more) – Acupuncture is a great treatment for all types of joint and muscle pains, whether it’s due to arthritis (Kneepain), bursitis, tendinitis, autoimmune diseases or other conditions such as Morton’s Neuroma, Baker’s cysts, De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis, etc.In particular, low back pain is probably the number one most frequently treated condition of all. Acupuncture is widely known as an effective treatment for low back pain, and for pain in general. MDs often suggest to their patients that they try acupuncture for musculoskeletal pain, and we find that many of our patients are able to reduce or eliminate pain medications and sometimes even avoid surgery when they’ve been treated with acupuncture.

5
Insomnia – Whether it’s difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep, we’ve got some great treatments for you! Acupuncture is generally helpful for sleep, and there are specific points that we use for particular sleep problems (such as stress related or menopausal related sleep disturbances). Many of our patients who don’t even request treatment for sleep mention to us at follow-up appointments that they’ve been sleeping better after receiving acupuncture. If you’ve been having difficulty sleeping, definitely give acupuncture a try!

6
Stress – In our modern, fast-paced world, who doesn’t experience some degree of stress? Whether it’s related to work, school, family, health problems or rush hour traffic, most people feel themselves experiencing some stress and tension. For many people, stress can be the root of other troubles such as insomnia, muscle tension and digestive problems. acupuncture is awesome for stress relief! It calms the nervous system, and as it works to reduce your stress, it can help to solve other stress-related symptoms, too.

7
Anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) – Much like stress, anxiety and PTSD are big challenges for many people. Some people experience panic attacks, difficulty sleeping, a racing heart and/or inability to focus. Acupuncture is excellent for relieving anxiety, calming the “fight or flight” response and reducing associated symptoms.

8
Fibromyalgia – Experiencing widespread chronic pain is very challenging. Acupuncture is very good at pain management and reduction. We focus on generalized pain and also use points to target any particularly bad spots. Regular acupuncture alleviates the discomforts of fibromyalgia and can also help improve mood and sleep, so you feel a sense of overall wellness

9
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Acid Reflux/GERD, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and other digestive symptoms – Digestive problems can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Acupuncture can help regulate and improve digestive function so you feel more comfortable, less distracted by symptoms and better able to enjoy life

10
Allergies – Seasonal and environmental allergy symptoms such as sinus congestion and pressure, runny nose, sneezing and itchy/watery eyes can be alleviated with acupuncture. It can be used for prevention/maintenance as well as for symptom reduction when the season/exposure is at its peak.
There are other conditions for which acupuncture can be helpful, so if you’re curious about being treated for something that isn’t listed above or on our conditions treated  page, please ask! You are welcome to call us at +917708211515

Acupuncture Help Relieve Indigestion, A New Study Suggests

Acupuncture Treatment For Digestion Problem

Acupuncture Treatment For Digestion Problems

Feelings of bloating and fullness were relieved by use of acupuncture needles.

by By

Acupuncture help relieve indigestion, a new study suggests.

Chinese researchers did a controlled experiment to test acupuncture as a treatment for postprandial distress syndrome, or P.D.S., a common type of chronic indigestion characterized by an unpleasant sense of fullness after eating, sometimes accompanied by pain and burning in the throat and stomach. It has no obvious cause.

The study, in the Annals of Internal Medicine, randomized 228 otherwise healthy patients with P.D.S. to receive either acupuncture three times a week for four weeks, or a sham treatment that looked similar but did not involve the accurate placement and manipulation of needles. All the participants completed questionnaires about their symptoms — fullness, bloating, pain, burning, and so on — before and after the treatments.

In the acupuncture group, 83 percent had some benefits from the treatment, compared with 52 percent of the controls. In the treatment group, 28 percent achieved complete elimination of post-meal fullness, bloating and early satiation, compared with 17 percent of those who received the placebo treatment.

The senior author, Dr. Cun-Zhi Liu of the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, said that there are drugs to treat P.D.S., but their efficacy is limited and their side effect sometimes intolerable. If patients get acupuncture treatment from a trained / experienced professional,” he said, “they may feel improvement within two to four weeks.”

Acupuncture Reduces Cancer Pain and Lessens Chemotherapy-Induced Neuropathy | Research

Acupuncture Reduces Cancer pain and lessens chemotherapy

Acupuncture Reduces Cancer pain and lessens chemotherapy-induced neuropathy :: Research

3 Recent studies of cancer patients showed acupuncture to be effective in various ways. The first study showed that Acupuncture reduces cancer pain and painkiller use (1). A second study showed that Acupuncture lessens chemotherapy-induced neuropathy (2), and a third study showed that Acupuncture reduces radiation-induced dry mouth. (3)

Although these studies were specific to cancer patients and side-effects of cancer treatments, we’d like to elaborate on these findings. Acupuncture is helpful for all types of pain, peripheral neuropathy and dry mouth. We have first-hand experience treating these conditions in our own patients, and it would be beneficial for you and others to know about this as well.

When it comes to pain, acupuncture is effective for all types: musculoskeletal pain, arthritic pain, headaches and migraines, menstrual pain, abdominal pain, fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome and more. Many of our patients try acupuncture with the goal of pain relief and many are able to reduce or eliminate the need for painkillers/over the counter pain relief medicine. Acupuncture is always worth a try for pain.

In terms of peripheral neuropathy (pain/tingling/numbness in hands/fingers and feet/toes), we have patients who have experienced a substantial reduction in severity of neuropathy related to chemotherapy and diabetes, as well as neuropathy without any specific underlying condition. Our patients are pleased when they have less discomfort and greater function (i.e. walking more easily, using their fingers/hands with fine motor skills more easily/comfortably). Although acupuncture is helpful for all types of neuropathy, we do want to point out that when there is an underlying condition such as diabetes, it is extremely important to effectively address that condition (i.e. working with a physician/dietician to ensure blood sugar levels are healthy/stable) in addition to the use of acupuncture for the neuropathy.

Finally, acupuncture is helpful for dry mouth and also for other symptoms of dryness such as dry eyes. Certain points are useful for stimulating the salivary glands and tear ducts, and for overall dryness in the body. We have seen this in patients with conditions such as blepharitis, Sjogren’s syndrome and dry mouth related to the use of medications.

We are pleased to see many cancer centers offering acupuncture for their patients to help manage their symptoms, and it is also fantastic that research is being done in these settings. Acupuncture Treatment is gaining in popularity due to its efficacy in a wide variety of health conditions.
