Can Needles Heal?

acupuncture-1.jpg

Acupuncture has its roots deeply planted in China. In fact, authorities agree the science is between 5,000 and 7,000 years old. Its use spread throughout ancient Egypt, the Middle East, the Roman Empire and later into Western Europe as merchants and missionaries to China told of the amazing discoveries the people of the Orient had developed. Acupuncture did not become known on a national level in the U.S. until 1971 when diplomatic relations between China and America were relaxed.

At first glimpse, acupuncture appears strange, as its primary notoriety is the utilization of needles placed in the skin at various locations to relieve pain or affect a body part.

Chinese physicians theorize there is an energy network traversing just below the surface of the skin which communicates from the exterior to the internal organs and structures at over 1,000 "Acupoints" on the body. They believe this energy works in harmony with the body's circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, and genitourinary and all other systems of the body. These physicians also believe that when this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, an effect in a body system or anatomic location becomes evident. Stimulation of one or a combination of key "Acupoints" on the body is said to restore harmony to the affected area.

Historians have stated, "More people have benefited from acupuncture over the course of fifty centuries than the combined total of all other healing sciences, both ancient and modern."

HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?

In recent years, science has determined that human beings are complex bioelectric systems. This understanding has been the foundation of acupuncture practice for several thousand years.

Classic acupuncture states that energy circulates throughout the body along well-defined pathways, called meridians. Points on the skin, along these pathways, are energetically connected to specific organs, body structures, and systems. If this energy circulation is disrupted, optimum function is affected and this results in pain or illness. Acupuncture points are stimulated to balance the circulation of energy, which influences the health of the entire being.

The modern theory of acupuncture is that there is a connection via the central nervous system that induces the production or secretion of chemicals in the body such as endorphins, neurotransmitters, hormones, lymphokines, etc. Though most of these chemicals are used fairly quickly, clinical experience indicates that acupuncture generally has cumulative effects. Thus, acupuncture must provide some training of the autonomic mechanisms that control the patient's pattern of physiological function.

In short, acupuncture works with a person's internal pharmacy, rather than putting in chemicals from the outside. This approach has several advantages over pharmaceutical medicine.

Far too often in the medical professions, a patient is told after extensive examination, "There is nothing wrong." "It is all in your head," or "Sorry, you'll have to learn to live with it." The examining doctor unable to find the cause of the problem has little else to tell the patient. Fortunately, many medical physicians are now referring their patients for an acupuncture evaluation as a last resort.

Medical research continues in this country and others to attempt to explain in western scientific terms what the ancient Chinese many centuries earlier described. Today, many theories have been postulated as to why acupuncture is so effective in pain control. However, as more discoveries are made, more research is indicated.
