Thousands swear by Acupuncture for Back Pain
Traditional Chinese medicine describes acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy in the body. Today, this centuries-old traditional Chinese treatment is used by millions. The treatment begins with you lying comfortably on a cushioned table. Then your acupuncturist will carefully place fine needles into specific areas of the body to create harmony and balance your flow of energy. Acupuncture is commonly used to treat pain, although it’s also successfully used as a stress management technique and to treat various ailments such as: migraine headaches, menstrual cramps, low back pain, neck pain, sports injuries, and sometimes even depression and insomnia. In some instances, acupuncture can help lower blood pressure, relax muscles, increase circulation, and balance your breath. Many people consider acupuncture an integral part of their wellness routine. When dealing with back pain the practice of acupuncture garners great results.
There are some things to know about the history of acupuncture:
-Acupuncture and traditional healing practices are believed to have originated in China, over 3,000 years ago.
-The earliest recorded instruments used in the practice of acupuncture were actually sharpened stones instead of needles
