Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a very sophisticated therapeutic technique that requires careful consideration of a selection of factors such as placement of hair-thin needles in the appropriate vessels (nodes), types of manipulation, depth and duration of needle, and other factors. These factors will depend on each patient's exterior and interior conditions.

Acupuncture is shown to affect hormone levels, blood pressure, the sympathetic and para-sympathetic nervous system, pain receptors, the brain, limbic, immunity, as well as the cardiovascular system of the body.

Needling often produces an immediate response, where it feels similar to small and quick cramping or electrical sensation. One scientific explanation of the natural healing power of acupuncture is that the needling can help trigger the body’s own neurovascular-immune system that sends signals to the nervous-system of the particular site that needs healing. These defensive function can be manipulated by proper needling techniques. Superficial stimulation along the nodal(Acupoint) or vessels can influence internal organs by stimulated Central Nerve System(CNS), which caused by neuron on the skin, blood vessels and muscle distribution.

There are many acupuncture techniques including local needling, meridian needling, navel needling and various combinations of the above methods.
