Acupuncture is a word of Latin origin. It is formed by combining the words “acus” meaning needle and “punctus” meaning to prick. Acupuncture is a treatment method based on the stimulation of these points by inserting very thin needles into certain points on the skin.
HOW ACUPUNCTURE EFFECTS
Acupuncture points have different properties from other points in terms of structural, electrical and temperature on the body. By stimulating the acupuncture points, the levels of substances effective in nerve transmission such as beta endorphin, enkephalin and serotonin increase in the plasma and central nervous system.
These substances act by spreading throughout the body through the circulation. In addition, the body initiates the repair mechanism against the micro-trauma caused by the insertion of the needle into the acupuncture point and a therapeutic effect is created. Acupuncture, which is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, balances the body's energy flow and acts by stimulating the organism's own healing power.
Acupuncture, which is preferred for the integrity of physical, mental and spiritual balance, is a treatment with thousands of years of history. After the energy becomes stagnant or blocked in the energy meridians, which are scientifically proven in the body, some dysfunctions occur in the relevant organs. These dysfunctions are also encountered with complaints about the related organs.
With acupuncture treatment, the fluidity of the impaired life energy and its imbalance, if any, are corrected.
