Acupuncture Miami is a medicinal tradition that has originated in ancient China.  Its basic principle is that a life force in the body called vital force or chi in Chinese, flows throughout the body of a person giving that person energy, health and life.  Acupuncturists and other practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine consider blockages that hinder the normal glow of chi in the body as factors that cause diseases and illnesses.  When this happens, symptoms start to manifest internally and externally.

Practitioners of TCM including acupuncturists believe that specific points on the body called meridian or acupuncture points associate with various major organs and other vital body parts. The Chinese were able to formulate acupuncture for over a few millennia and believe the body and the whole person is one and interconnected with the universe.  Sadly, Western medicine has no such connection to the universe nor is it similar at all to acupuncture.

The body possesses hundreds of acupuncture points scattered throughout the body.  Identifying the right acupuncture point to treat a certain condition is a must for anyone who wants to be a practitioner of acupuncture.  When a diagnosis is formulated by the acupuncturist, the diagnosis automatically indicates what specific acupuncture points are to be treated.

Acupuncture is very effective for a huge array of painful conditions including mental conditions such as depression and anxiety back pain dental pain and headaches to name just a few.  The therapy either induces a tranquil calming effect or revitalizes a person giving him/her more energy than before.  A lot of people with chronic pain have found acupuncture helps them manage pain much better allowing them to live a relatively normal and independent life.

As mentioned acupuncture treatment can be a blissful and relaxing experience.  This often happens because acupuncture has the ability to stimulate the production and release of endorphins in the body.  Endorphins are actually the body’s “feel good” chemicals or the body’s own natural painkiller.  The patient may feel so relaxed during the whole treatment session that he/she usually sleeps during the rest of the procedure. Acupuncture can also aid in treating insomnia since it allows the person to feel all peaceful, relaxed and comfortable; all essential factors for a good sleep.

Western science has still not been able to scientifically prove that acupuncture really works, although the burden is on them to persuade people to believe that acupuncture does not work.  Good luck to them.  With thousands of years of use and countless people who attest to its effectiveness, Western science may be the only one incapable of proving something that is true and real.  Evidences of acupuncture’s potency have been there for thousands of years especially when it comes to relieving painful conditions, nausea, insomnia and others health problems.
