Acupuncture and Pain

Acupuncture works by helping to re-align a body’s “chi”, or “Qi”. This is a Chinese term that generally refers to an energy force which permeates the human body. It is also thought that Qi could be interpreted as oxygen and therefore relating to circulation within the blood vessels of your body. It sounds incredibly non-scientific, until you learn that today scientists are finding human bodies do have an electromagnetic force.

In fact, there’s an entire scientific discipline called bioelectromagnetics which studies this phenomenon. Knowing as much, suddenly the wisdom of ancient China becomes more intriguing.  It’s interesting to wonder how thousands of years ago these ancient medicine people in China were able to identify these concepts.  They understood that Qi, oxygen and blood circulated throughout the body.

When the energy in the body becomes stagnant, it creates an imbalance. Acupuncture needles placed at various points help to unblock the stagnation and harmonize the different organ systems of the body.  Professionally conducted case studies in Europe and the United States have shown that, whether the “QI” involves electromagnetic forces or not, acupuncture statistically reduces pain.

There are many places to find acupuncture for pain in Santa Rosa. The trend is developing and seems likely to maintain as more and more realize the benefits of this Eastern medicinal technique.

If you haven’t tried acupuncture before, you should. Whether or not you believe in Qi, studies have proven that this practice reduces pain and nausea, and you may find that chronic pain disappears entirely.

Of course results will vary between patients, as patients are themselves unique, but I would recommend exploring this pain-relieving technique. If you’ve tried everything else, what do you have to lose? Acupuncture for pain in Santa Rosa is readily available, statistically reliable, and generally more affordable.
