Acupuncture has been around for many thousands of years – since the Vedic times. It was one of the earliest forms of practices that would apply pressure or use needles on acupressure points around the body, hands, feet and ears to relieve tension around certain parts of the body and help the blood flow effortlessly.
This alternative medicine has been scientifically tested and is appreciated alongside western medicine today. There are many different forms of acupuncture depending on which country and philosophy is followed.
Acupuncture is a safe method of treatment, normally carried out by a trained professional using clean needles and acupressure point techniques. Acupuncture is the insertion of thin needles in to the skin that can be left in place for ten to twenty five minutes. Acupuncture can also be associated with heat or laser light treatment.
Acupuncture can be performed on all ages, just different techniques and needles are used for children. Traditional acupuncture uses cupping and moxibustion therapy as well as inserting needles in to the skin.
