Acupuncture is defined as the stimulation of a specific method, resulting in a therapeutic homeostatic effect. The specific point on the body is called “Shu-xu” or acupuncture point (acupoint). The ancient Chinese have discovered 173 acupoints in animals.
Acupoints may be stimulated in a variety of ways. These techniques include dry needling, moxibustion, aqu-acupuncture and electro-acupuncture. Numerous studies have shown that acupuncture stimulation induces the following physiological effects:
- Pain Relief
- Regulation of gastrointestinal motility
- Anti-inflammatory effect
- Hormone and reproductive regulation
- Anti-febrile effect; microcirculation promotion
Acupuncture is a very safe medical procedure when administered by a qualified practitioner. Very few side effects have been found in clinical cases.
