Acupuncture Miami is a vital part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Acupuncture together with the rest of the modalities offered by TCM believes in a universal energy force known as chi. Chi is the energy that gives, sustains and strengthens life and is present in all living things including humans. The normal constant flow of chi engenders good health and brings humans in good coexistence and harmony with life and the environment. When chi flow is disrupted in our body or in the environment sickness and chaos respectively is inevitable.
It is acupuncture’s job to restore normal constant chi flow in the body causing the resolution of pain, illnesses and disorders. Acupuncture needles, which are as thin as human hairs, inserted at specific points in the body restore normal chi flow at chi vessels in the body known as meridians. Healing starts when blockages of chi are removed. Adherents of acupuncture treatment attest to its ability to clear their thoughts and make them think better, make them relax and tranquil and enable them to live productive and healthy lives.
To better appreciate how acupuncture works for endometriosis, it is best to understand the cause of endometriosis.
A woman’s menstrual cycle partly entails forming a lining in the uterus called the endometrium. This lining is responsible for nursing a fetus after fertilization of the female egg with the sperm. If there is no fertilization, the lining will be removed through menstruation from the body. However, sometimes, the lining goes to other body parts instead of going straight out of the vagina causing injury, bleeding, disruption and scarring to those other body parts. This problem is called endometriosis, and it brings severe pain to the woman.
