Robina 7 Day Doctors and Acupuncture recommends this article.
Ever wanted to find out what are the practical applications of acupuncture?
Acupuncture has many modalities, the meridians of energy in the body have many acupuncture points
where the needles can unblock and release the energy to flow in the meridians which reduces pain.
As well the points have an end point in the brain, where brain centres such as thalamus / hypothalamus,
pituitary and muscle control nuclei can be stimulated to release brain hormones such as cortisol, endomorphines, melatonin and GABA.
The overall effect is to “normalize”the body. If there has been an injury or an imbalance in the system
acupuncture can help to restore normal function.
In general acupuncture is good for any pain condition, be it due to muscle, ligament, tendon or nerve injury.
It is also good for hormonal imbalance.
Also depression, anxiety, stress can be alleviated by acupuncture.
However acupuncture is not effective for cancer treatment, and is not done if patients are immuno-suppressed.
