Acupuncture has been around for a thousand of years already. It originated in China and has spread rapidly to Western Europe, the United States of America and even to Canada. Acupuncture is a process that involves having to insert very thin needles onto your skin.
Usually, practitioners of acupuncture insert needles in the back, on the face or to any other body part that somehow needs relief. The insertion of the needle can vary greatly in depths and the needle also varies in size. Acupuncture is said to have therapeutic effects like pain alleviation and relief from nausea.
Practitioners and patients of acupuncture have claimed numerous health benefits although no scientific study has yet proven the validity of such claims. Some of the health benefits are the following:
- Relief from chronic pain
Patients say that acupuncture can help relieve pain in areas of the body that they complain about. It can bring in great relief most especially if the correct needle size and correct depth of puncture of the needle.
