Practiced for 5000 years or more, acupuncture Miami is now a worldwide treatment for many types of pain and ailments.
Acupuncture has its roots in naturalism and Taoism. It believes that all living things have an energy called Qi or chi, (vital energy or life force) which gives life to all creatures. Chi travels on 12 pathways called meridians, which are invisible networks that connect on one end to points in the skin called acupuncture points or acupoints and on the other end connect to the major organs and tissues of the body. Acupuncture states that disease happens when chi becomes imbalanced.
With the use of ultra thin, stainless steel needles punctured into specific acupoints, acupuncture reestablishes smooth unhindered flow of chi throughout the body balancing and harmonizing body functions once again. Patients feel a relaxed and revitalized feeling after the treatment.
Acupuncture treatment is endorsed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is even widely incorporated by health care providers, dentists and doctors in their practices all over the US.
The National Health Interview Survey released in 2002 a report showing the increase of acupuncture treatments rising from more than 2 million patients in 2001 to more than 8 million patients in 2002; a dramatic increase, which signifies not only the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating a host of illnesses but also in its natural and safe approach to health.
Every year, there is growing dissatisfaction in the results of conventional medicine towards health issues especially the problematic side effects pharmaceutical medications cause that sometimes are more toxic and destabilizing to the body than the illnesses they profess to cure. This is one major reason why alternative treatments such as acupuncture are getting popular by the day. One would rather opt for a non-toxic and safe relief from pain than anything else conventional medicine offers nowadays.
Acupuncture uses the body’s own chemicals like endorphins and enkephalins to relieve pain. It controls the nervous system and the electromagnetic energy running through the body and uses them to treat common aliments and conditions. The ailments and conditions that acupuncture effectively addresses includes: asthma, carpal tunnel syndrome, obesity, arthritis, menstrual cramps, back pain, infertility, tennis elbow, cold, migraines, sinusitis and behavioral and chemical addictions among others.
The lethality of prescription drugs can be observed by the number of them being taken out of circulation every day due to many complaints of their toxicity and by the number of lawsuits filed by patients and their families against the companies that make these drugs. The realization that these drugs cause more harm than good have begun to sink in, in this day and age and people have started to realize that there are better natural alternatives around that give better results.
