What is acupuncture and how does it work? Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that involves inserting thin needles into specific points within the body to help treat ailments. This wellness practice, stemming from Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), is based on the concept that humans have an energy or life force flowing within them called the qi—and according to TCM, the qi can fall out of balance or cause blockages within the body, and in turn manifest itself as a range of different illnesses. The qi is said to flow throughout the entire body, and it can be accessed through 350 different pressure points, so the main premise is that your acupuncturist can rebalance your qi and clear out any existing energy blockages using the right combination of pressure points. The procedure itself entails using very thin needles to reach the desired pressure points, which are then oftentimes gently manipulated and twisted throughout your acupuncture session, and then left in place for between five to thirty minutes. For a single treatment session, usually between five and twenty needles are used, however because the needles are so fine, most patients rarely report feeling any discomfort. Overall, acupuncture is considered to be a safe and suitable treatment option for a variety of conditions, including but not limited to headaches, migraines, back pain, sprains, high and low blood pressure, anxiety, sciatica, morning sickness, insomnia, allergic rhinitis, depression, and even chemotherapy induced nausea. However, if you have a bleeding disorder or take blood thinners, you should consult with your doctor before scheduling an acupuncture session, as there could be additional dangers and risks involved.
