Acupuncture is the practice of penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metallic needles which are then activated through gentle and specific movements of the practitioner's hands or with electrical stimulation.
Acupuncture is done using hair-thin needles. Most people report feeling minimal pain as the needle is inserted. The needle is inserted to a point that produces a sensation of pressure or ache.
Acupuncture points are believed to stimulate the central nervous system. This, in turn, releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These biochemical changes may stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.
National Institutes of Health (NIH) studies have shown that acupuncture is an effective treatment alone or in combination with conventional therapies to treat the internal and external diseases.
Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin.
Through suction, the skin is drawn into the cup by creating a vacuum in the cup placed on the skin over the targeted area.
The goal of cupping therapy is to relieve pain by promoting blood circulation on the area.
Acupuncture is commonly used for treating pain, deep scar tissues in the muscles and connective tissue, muscle knots, and swelling.
Electro Acupuncture is a modern variation of acupuncture. It uses electricity to enhance the benefits of this traditional therapeutic treatment.
Like traditional acupuncture, electroacupuncture uses needles placed in the same spots. Then, a small electrode is attached to the needles. A small amount of electricity runs through the electrode and gives a slight vibration or soft hum during treatment.
With electro-acupuncture, it circulates the bloodstream for longer and it provides a longer period of time for pain relief when compared to acupuncture.
When you get electroacupuncture, it activates your sympathetic nerve fibers. By activating these fibers, your body releases endogenous opioids such as endorphins, which help to reduce inflammation. The activated nerve fibers may also help to reduce feelings of persistent pain.
There are many uses and applications of electroacupuncture. Some uses are to treat pain, arthritis, chemotherapy-related nausea, stress, addiction and even tinnitus.
Traditional medicine is “the knowledge, skills and practices based on the theories, beliefs and experiences indigenous to different cultures, used in the maintenance of health and in the prevention, diagnosis, improvement or treatment of physical and mental illness”
The use of plants for healing purposes predates recorded history and forms the origin of much of modern medicine. Many conventional drugs originate from plant sources: a century ago, most of the few effective drugs were plant-based. Examples include aspirin (from willow bark), digoxin (from foxglove), quinine (from cinchona bark), and morphine (from the opium poppy). The development of drugs from plants continues, with drug companies engaged in large-scale pharmacologic screening of herbs.
The use of herbal remedies is more prevalent in patients with acute illness, chronic diseases and improving well-being
