What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an essential part of Traditional Oriental Medicine, a comprehensive system of health care with a continuous clinical history of over 3000 years.

An Acupuncturist will place fine, sterile needles at specific point on the body (Modern science has been able to measure the electrical charge at these points). Needling these points stimulates the flow of life energy (Qi), removes blockages and restores balance throughout the body. Qi helps to animate the body and protect it from illness, pain and disease. Qi circulates through specific pathways called meridians. Each meridian is associated with particular physiological system and internal organ. Disease is considered to arise due to a deficiency or imbalance of Qi in the meridians and their associated physiogical systems. Acupuncture treatment can activate the body’s Qi and promotes natural healing by enhancing recuperative power, immunity, physical and emotional health. It also can improve overall function and well-being.


What Should I Expect?

Where the acupuncture needle has been inserted, you may experience a vague numbness, heaviness, tingling or dull ache. This is called “Qi sensation.” All these reactions are normal and a sign that the treatment is working. After treatment , you may feel energized or may experience a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.

How Safe is Acupuncture?

The answer relies in the skill of the practitioner. When practiced by a licensed, trained acupuncturist, acupuncture is extremely safe. Acupuncture needles are sterile, disposable, used once, and then discarded. The importance of seeking an appropriately and comprehensively trained acupuncturist cannot be overstated.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments will vary from person to person. Some people experience immediate relief, others may take months or even years to achieve results. As in any form of healing, the patient’s attitude, diet, determination and lifestyle will affect the outcome of a course of treatment. Patients are encouraged to actively participate in their healing progress. In most cases, it usually takes 4 to 6 weeks of treatment to see significant changes.

美国医师学会最新腰痛指南

  • 美国医师学会推荐多种非药物疗法为治疗腰痛的一线疗法
  • 急性腰痛(三个月以内):热敷,按摩,针灸,整脊
  • 慢性腰痛(三个月以上):锻炼,康复,针灸,心神疗法,太极拳,瑜伽等
  • 注:在各种被推荐的非药物疗法中,针灸是唯一被推荐为治疗急性和慢性腰痛的一线疗法,而吗啡类镇痛药被列为最后的选择。指南中没有提到手术疗法。有关专家还表示,影像扫描诊断腰痛不仅没有价值,还会显示与疼痛无关的结构异常,对医患产生误导。显然,美国医疗界的这个指南是在付出了沉重的“滥用止痛药”代价后推出的。
