Acupuncture TCM Singapore
Acupuncture is one of few ancient Chinese medical technique procedures which is predominantly used to help provide pain relief as well as treat diseases by restoring the
normal flow of energy through the body.
A typical acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of very fine, hair-thin
needles into specific points on the body to cause a healing response from your body.
These needles are disposable, means that they are never used before/reused; and so fine that most people feel
nothing more than a slight tingling sensation when they are inserted - some people never feel them at all =)
The acupuncture points are mostly found along the meridians through
which Qi (bodily energy) flows. Acupuncture moves this energy by techniques of
ascending, descending, reinforcing, reducing, warming and clearing to
create the desired healing response.
Each treatment lasts approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Heat stimulation
and cupping may be used together with the needles in order to boost the
efficacy of healing.
Benefits of acupuncture
Researchers have identified several physiological mechanisms that highlights the healing effects of acupunture treatments to the human body.
What acupuncture does is that it stimulates electromagnetic signals in the body, which are
relayed/transmitted at a greater rate than normal. Some of these signals activate
the flow of pain-killing biochemicals such as endorphins, while others
mobilise immune system cells to specific sites that are injured or
vulnerable to diseases.
Research shows that by placing needles at certain acupuncture points also
causes an activation of opioids in the brain that relieve pain and promote sleep.
In addition, acupuncture also promotes the release of
neurotransmitters and hormones that affect the organ systems in
beneficial ways. Some of these chemicals help boost the immune system.
Others help to regulate basic metabolic functions such as blood
pressure, blood flow, body temperature and blood sugar levels.
How many acupuncture sessions will I need?
The number and frequency of treatments will vary from patient to
patient depending on their health conditions. Some symptoms may be
relieved after the first treatment, while others may take 10 to 20
treatments. In general, a disorder such as having an ongoing pain for
many years requires two to three treatments a week for the first few
weeks. Gradually, the frequency can be reduced to once or twice a month.
