    testing procedure and a healthy history,
    evaluation of movement, posture, and flexibility
    of joint motion, muscle, or performance.

    chronic obstructive cystic fibrosis, pulmonary
    diseases, or post-myocardial infarction.
  • Conditions like spinal cord injuries, stroke,
    multiple sclerosis, Parkinsons disease,
    traumatic brain injuries, and vestibular
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction and womens health, such
    as lymphedema and urinary incontinence.

Acupuncture A Traditional Medical Practice
  • Chinese traditional medical practices explain the
    results of acupuncture as a harmonious balance of
    extremes yang and yin of the life force which
    is known as qi. This illness is caused by the
    imbalance of the forces. These energies and
    meridians flows are accessible through more than
    300 acupuncture points in the human body.
    Inserting the needles into these points with
    suitable combinations which can bring the flow of
    energy back to the proper balance. There is no
    scientific proof that acupuncture points exist
    but many studies suggest that this practice is
    effective for some conditions. Some of the
    experts have used the science behind the nervous
    system to explain acupuncture. The points of the
    acupuncture covered those areas where muscles,
    nerves, and connective tissues can be motivated.
    This motivation will increase the flow of blood,
    while at the same time triggering the activity of
    the natural painkillers of the body.
  • Because of the invasive nature of acupuncture, it
    is difficult to set up the investigation using
    the scientific control. Some of the studies have
    claimed that acupuncture provides the same
    benefits as placebo which is a clinical practice,
    but others have claimed that there are many
    benefits of acupuncture.

Acupuncture Ways to Improve Health
  • Reducing Migraines and Headaches
  • According to a research, acupuncture is a
    valuable but non-pharmacological tool in the
    patients with regular chronic tension-type
    headaches. After multiple clinical trials, the
    researcher found out that this treatment is
    effective for headaches and migraine.
  • Improves Arthritis Pain, Chronic Pain, and Neck
  • Acupuncture proves to be effective against
    chronic back pain. In Berlin, many patients with
    chronic back pain are treated with acupuncture
    and a significant difference in pain is reported
    after eight weeks of treatments in the patients.
  • Insomnia Treatment
  • A report from Chinese Medicine University shows a
    beneficial effect of acupuncture in reducing the
    symptoms of insomnia, compared with no treatment.
    The overall analysis founds out that patients who
    are taking herbal treatments of medications to
    help with the sleep showed much better effects
    after taking acupuncture treatment.

Acupuncture Ways to Improve Health
  • Chemotherapy Recovery
  • According to many studies, acupuncture can help
    in boosting immunity and speeding up the recovery
    process after chemotherapy. It is also by a
    researcher that the treatment of acupuncture
    improves the platelet count and immunity.
  • Prevent Cognitive Decline
  • Studies on the topic also claimed that
    acupuncture is effective at reducing Parkinsons
    disease. Studies also suggest that acupuncture
    can also relieve the symptoms of age-related
    cognitive decline as it creates a neural response
    in certain areas of the brain such as the
    thalamus, and putamen.
  • Labor Pregnancy
  • Many of the doctors are now suggesting
    acupuncture as a treatment to reduce the pain of
    labor and pregnancy, balance hormones, and reduce
    stress. It is considered to be a safe treatment
    in pregnancy because it reduces emotional strain
    and physical symptoms experienced by mother.

Benefits of Acupuncture
  • Lower Chronic Pain
  • According to the latest research on the topic,
    acupuncture can reduce the pain up to 17 when it
    is used for a number of different types of pain,
    but primarily focused back pain that may result
    from poor sleeping habits, physical stress, old
    injuries, pregnancy, and tightness of muscles.
  • Arthritis Treatment
  • Acupuncture provides different options for
    reducing the debilitating and painful effects of
    arthritis. Inserting the needles in the meridians
    the nerve ends communicate with the brain and
    tells it to feel full or aching. This process
    will release the endorphins, which is normally
    released during stress and to block the receptors
    of pain.
  • Reduce Migraine Pain
  • Some past studies have shown that the patients
    who are treated with acupuncture had a greater
    chance of showing a reduction in the pain rather
    than the modern medical treatment.
  • Vomiting and Nausea
  • To reduce vomiting and nausea there are certain
    acupuncture pressure points near the wrist and
    the underside of the forearm. Acupuncture is also
    effective in reducing nausea and vomiting that is
    caused by chemotherapy treatment.
