Researches in the UK have mapped the effect of acupuncture on the brain and have found out that the therapeutic method changes some neural structures, deactivating a few areas in brain that is associated with processing of pain. What I have found out is that people who have come to into the emergency department in pain and tried out acupuncture, have been relieved of pain in a very short span of time.
This treatment is even safe when combined with most of the treatments and conventional drugs. It has no side effects.
Today, acupuncture is the most accepted therapeutic treatment in Northern Beaches.
But when should it be demanded over the mainstream medical treatments? Like all other modalities of treatment, an individual must first consult with his or doctor or an acupuncture specialist and discuss with the expert his or her conditions. Only if the specialist thinks that the treatment will be effective, it should be done because acupuncture cannot help treat every kind of problem. However, there are a few cases, where people have had a lot of medicines, had no relief and then it was acupuncture that had given significant relief.
But remember one thing-acupuncture needs to be done in the hands of a specialized therapist.
How does it help?
- Acupuncture can calm down the dental patients and help in the post-operative pain.
- Researchers have also found out it to be an alternative treatment to antidepressants for depression at the time of pregnancy. It is even being used in cases of psychiatric disorders increasingly.
- Acupuncture can lessen tension and headaches by ½ and ensure fewer headaches after 3-4 months.
- When women are treated with acupuncture at the time of embryo transfer, rates of pregnancy increases. Rates of pregnancy in Northern Beaches can thus be improved with this therapeutic process.
Many people who have undergone this treatment and have been able to get relief are very much satisfied with this process.
