Acpuncture

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

    It’s great that acupuncture can relieve people of chronic pain. Like you said, it can really help if the right size of needle is used and put in to the right depth. Something like that would be perfect for my grandmother. She often complains about her arthritis — I wonder if acupuncture would be able to help her feel relief from that. I’ll call a few places in my area and ask!
