How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture is a medical treatment that involves the stimulation of points on the body with the insertion of thin, disposable needles. It has become much more accepted in the U.S.; however, many healthcare consumers are still not aware of this relatively painless and effective treatment so useful in treating conditions such as migraines, stress, obesity, and addiction, to name but a few. Some consumers are apprehensive about acupuncture because of a fear of being “needled”. However, unlike the needles that are used to give shots or take blood, acupuncture needles are extremely thin. Most patients report that they feel no pain. In some cases, there might be a slight pricking or tingling sensation and in areas where the body has experienced pain, this pricking or tingling sensation may be more noticeable.
The absence of pain and effectiveness of this ancient medicine has helped acupuncture and Oriental medicine become more a part of mainstream healthcare. Research from the National Institute of Health supports this movement showing that acupuncture is effective for use in pain management, osteoarthritis, postoperative or chemotherapy-
The American practice of acupuncture incorporates medical traditions from China, Japan, Korea and other countries. Susan Nissle, L.Ac. had studied Traditional Japanese Meridian Therapy, Kiiko Matsumoto (KM) style acupuncture, Auricular Acupuncture and Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM) style acupuncture, in addition to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
