Chinese Acupuncture Birmingham For Acute And Chronic Conditions

As a practitioner of Chinese acupuncture in Birmingham, I find I am treating all manner of ailments, both physical and emotional.
Many people have heard about acupuncture and most of them cringe at the thought of tiny needles being poked into their body. However, you need to get past that and understand exactly what acupuncture is and especially what it can do for you.
Chinese acupuncture Birmingham Acupuncture has its origins in China and is a part of the Taoist system of medicine. This method of healing takes into account all parts of an individual, the spiritual, physical and emotional all connected, always moving, changing and affecting their counterpart. Chinese acupuncture is used to support the body and to help with the natural healing process. Inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimuli at exact acupuncture points is how this is accomplished.
The human body has 365 principal acupuncture points and also many other minor points. Channels, known as meridians, of energy, connect these points. This energy or vital force as it is called, flows through your body in these meridians and connects all of your major organs. This energy is known as your “Qi” (pronounced as chee). Chinese medical premise is that illnesses happen when the natural flow of Qi in the meridians becomes out of balance or blocked.
A famous Chinese saying, “Bu tong ze, tong ze bu tong” meaning “free flow - no pain, no free flow - pain” is a perfect expression of what acupuncture means. More simply put, acupuncture restores the normal free flow by moving the Qi.
Specific acupuncture points have been mapped out and used by the Chinese for over 2000 years. These points have been shown to be effective in the treatment of specific health issues. Although the most common areas usually discussed with an acupuncturist tend to be problems associated with pain such as neck and back pain, shoulder and knee pain, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and sciatica, these are not the only areas that acupuncture can help.
Chinese acupuncture and medicine are also very successful in the treatment of a number of other conditions. Unfortunately, a lot people who have a serious medical problem will wait to try acupuncture and Oriental medicine. They use it as a "last resort" only to discover that it can help them where other treatments could not.
