What is Acupuncture Really?
Acupuncture is the strategic placement of fine, sterile, single-use needles on the body to conduct and regulate Qi. Qi is the natural bioelectric energy that flows through our cells, tissues, and organs and ensures proper function. Health issues will arise when this energy is not flowing smoothly and becomes blocked. By regulating the flow of the body’s natural bioelectric energy, acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of ailments.
What Conditions are Treated with Acupuncture?
Acupuncture benefits from the NIH National Institute of Health include:
Is Acupuncture Painful?
Most people report a minimal amount of pain as the need is inserted. Most often, pressure or ache sensations are reported. Moreover, the location of the body and injury will also make some points more prone to sense and feeling than others. Sometimes if it is your first time, it may be more painful than subsequent treatments. It’s essential to relax and loosen your body during your acupuncture treatment. When the needle is embedded to the point, most people report feeling a sensation of muscle strain or momentary vibration.
Facial Acupuncture Edmonton
Facial acupuncture primarily focuses on enhancing skin health and appearance. However, given its basis in traditional Chinese medicine, which believes in the interconnectivity of the body’s systems, it may indirectly influence other aspects of health, including respiration. Certain acupuncture points on the face correspond to pathways, or meridians, that are related to the respiratory system.
For instance, acupuncture theory links points on and around the nose to the Lung meridian. Stimulating these points may help enhance nasal breathing and relieve symptoms like sinus congestion or rhinitis.
Acupuncture on the face also stimulates collagen production, reducing fine lines and promoting skin elasticity for an anti-aging effect. Boosting blood circulation improves skin texture and gives a radiant glow. Balancing the body’s energies can alleviate inflammatory conditions like acne. It also promotes lymphatic drainage, reducing facial puffiness. Regular sessions can even tighten facial muscles, offering a natural facelift. Beyond aesthetics, facial acupuncture can enhance overall well-being, reducing stress and improving sleep. This alone can help with anti-aging. Please note results vary, and regular sessions are recommended for sustained effects. Consult our acupuncturists in Edmonton today for more info.
How Does It Really Work?
Numerous studies have been done on this topic, and acupuncture has been a traditional part of Eastern Medicine for thousands of years. Our body has more than 2000 pressure points connected by energy pathways. As the practitioner inserts the need, it stimulates the body’s central nervous system. This results in biochemical changes (restoring balance) as the body produces chemicals such as serotonin and endorphins responsible for stress relief, improved mood and well-being.
Many Canadians seek acupuncture treatments for various reasons, including lower back pain, chronic pain and arthritis. It has slowly gained the recognition it deserves in the West as an effective and valid form of treatment by many Western institutions, including the NIH and John Hopkins Medicine. At Soul2Sole, our acupuncturist in Edmonton can design a holistic treatment plan that targets relevant points throughout your body, not just on your face, to provide more effective relief.
