Default Acupuncture/Acupressure

I am a huge fan of Acupuncture. I resonate with it and feel it work almost immediately.
Here is some info on Acupuncture and Acupressure.

ACUPUNCTURE
Acupuncture is an ancient oriental healing technique based
on balancing energy meridians within the body, thus allowing
the body to heal itself. Fine needles are painlessly inserted at
key points corresponding to body organs to relieve pain and
cure disease and dysfunction. Related techniques include the
use of low voltage, electric current (electro acupuncture) or
massage at key points (acupressure).
ACUPRESSURE
Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers
to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate
the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these
points are pressed, they release muscular tension and
promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force
(sometimes known as qi or chi) to aid healing.
Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but
acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses

the gentle, but firm pressure of hands and feet.
Acupressure, continues to be the most effective method

for self-treatment of tension-related ailments by using the
power and sensitivity of the human hand.

Acupressure and Acupuncture can be effective in helping
relieve headaches, eye strain, sinus problems, neck pain,

backaches, arthritis, muscle aches, tension due to stress,
ulcer pain, menstrual cramps, lower backaches, constipation,
and indigestion. Self-acupressure can also be used to relieve
anxiety and improve sleep. There are also great advantages
to using acupressure as a way to balance the body and
maintain good health. The healing touch of acupressure
reduces tension, increases circulation, and enables the body
to relax deeply.
By relieving stress, acupressure strengthens resistance to

disease and promotes wellness.

In acupressure, local symptoms are considered an expression
of the condition of the body as a whole. A tension headache,
for instance, may be rooted in the shoulder and neck area.


Thus, acupressure focuses on relieving pain and discomfort,
as well as responding to tension, before it develops into a
disease—before the constrictions and imbalances can do
further damage. The origins of acupressure are as ancient as
the instinctive impulse to hold your forehead or temples
when you have a headache. Everyone at one time or another
has used their hands spontaneously to hold tense or painful
places on the body.

This is a big interest of mine.

I wanted to train for it but it is so hard to find schooling around here.

Glad you enjoy it. Any one I have talked with about it have always spoke highly of the results.

I respond so well with it that I hardly need chiro adjustments. Not everyone responds as well,or as quickly, but they noticed a difference in subtle ways.
We have a couple of schools here. It would be well worth it to go for it. My son is actually going to take it, he is finishing up his prerequisites. I thought about going back to do Chinese Herbal medicine, we'll see....

Interesting. It's meant to be painless then?

A physiotherapist once used acupuncture on my lower back. It hurt a little at times as the needles were going in. Is that normal, or was the person not doing it right?

My girl is doing her licenciate in Traditional Chinese Medicine and I would say that the needles being painlessly inserted thing is really subjective lol

Though it does have to be said that Accupuncture in various forms is a part of the healthcare system for a large part of the population of our planet. So its proper medicine, no question, and while it realistically does hurt getting well with accupuncture doesnt involve pain to anyone but yourself.

It doesnt involve animal testing, testing on prisoners, or giving money to uber powerfull drug companies with their uber powerfull addictive *legal* drugs who are more interested in money and ways of getting people to live with diseases then finding cures.

I know its a value judgement but still... its good stuff.

Well it depends on your pain threshold, which varies for each person. The insertion of the needle itself should not be painful, you might feel like a dull ache while the energy is trying to flow again in the area. If you hit a vein that can be a painful pinch. I explain it to patients as a mosquito bite pinch.

Hm okay. I'm usually pretty good with pain. It was sort of like a mossie bite, but deeper, as she tapped it in. And then for a few of them there was a sort of tenderness/ache around the needle while it was left in.

It wasn't enough to stop me from having it done again, anyway.

Ive had accupuncture from a wide range of practitioners of various skill levels practicing various styles of accupuncture and in my experiance as a guinea pig I would say not every point hurts and the more skilled the practitioner the less you feel the needle but... really its not kittens licking you, accupuncture hurts.

There are accupuncture points on the soles of your feet, between your legs and on the tips of your fingers... how would being jabbed with a needle there not hurt?

I see, thanks. As I said, it didn't really bother me, once I got my head round the 'there are needles sticking out of me!' thing
