Definition of acupuncture

Acupuncture is an alternative healing method that originally comes from traditional Chinese medicine. It is based on the idea that there is energy railways in our body, along which the life energy flows. Diseases arise when the harmonious flow of energy is disturbed. By setting thin needles at certain points on these energy channels, the balance is to be restored.

This technology, which has been practiced for centuries, has become increasingly important in the western world in recent decades. Acupuncture is used to treat various symptoms these days. It can be used in pain, such as back, head or joint pain, but also with stress, sleep disorders or symptoms of the vegetative nervous system. In addition, acupuncture is also used in addiction therapy or in birth preparation.

Scientific studies have shown that acupuncture can actually have a positive effect on certain diseases. It is assumed that the needles stimulate certain nerves and thus relieve pain or promote the release of endorphins, the body's own pain -relieving substances. Nevertheless, there are also critical voices that doubt the effectiveness of the treatment method. The exact mechanisms of action are not yet fully understood and further research is necessary to further examine the effectiveness of acupuncture.

History of acupuncture

The history of acupuncture goes back to the beginnings of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Already over 2000 years ago, the Chinese healers discovered that the balance of the body and its health are closely related to the flow of life energy, the so -called "Qi". This knowledge led to the development of acupuncture.

In acupuncture, thin needles along the meridians, the energy railways in the body, are placed. By stinging these needles, the Qi is stimulated and should be able to circulate freely and freely in the meridians again. In this way, the optimal functioning of the body is supported and its inner balance is restored.

Acupuncture is used in a variety of symptoms and diseases. Typical areas of application are headaches, migraines, cervical syndrome, trigeminal neuralgia, dizziness, squash, back pain, ischialgia, postdiscotomies syndrome and cervical spine complaints.

The history of acupuncture is closely associated with traditional Chinese medicine. The concept of the Qi and the meridian are fundamental principles in Chinese medicine and form the basis of acupuncture therapy. Nowadays, acupuncture is used worldwide as an alternative therapy method and is enjoying growing popularity.

Principles of acupuncture

The principles of acupuncture are based on Chinese medicine, which assumes that there are energy channels in the body in which the life power flows. By setting needles at certain points on these energy channels, the energy flow can be regulated and imbalances can be remedied in the body.

Acupuncture, also called needle therapy, is used for the treatment of various diseases. Thinner needles are placed on specific points of the body in order to stimulate or calm the energy flow. The aim is to restore the Qi for flowing and the balance in the body.

Treatment is often based on defined treatment guidelines based on centuries -old experiences and traditions. Not only the symptoms are treated, but people as a whole are considered. Therefore, the patient is dealt with individually and the needle placement is adapted.

The main application of acupuncture lies in pain relief, especially in chronic pain such as headaches, back pain or arthritis. However, it can also be used for other symptoms such as stress, sleep disorders, digestive problems or menstrual complaints.

Overall, acupuncture is a holistic treatment method in which the inner balance is restored and the self -healing powers are activated by setting needles on specific points in the body.

Techniques and tools of acupuncture

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese healing method in which special needles are inserted at certain points of the body. This technology is known for its ability to relieve pain and treat various symptoms. In addition to classic acupuncture, there are also various special techniques that are used.

One of these special techniques is moxibustion, in which dried mugwort herb (moxa) is burned to heat the acupuncture points. The burning of the moxa creates a pleasant warmth that compensates for the energies in the body and supports the healing process.

Another special technique is laser acupuncture, in which a laser is used instead of needles to stimulate the acupuncture points. The laser sends out bundled light that activates the energy channels in the body and thus promotes the self -healing process.

Acupressure is a technique in which pressure is exerted on certain points of the body. Instead of needles, the fingers, the thumb or special tools are pressed onto the acupuncture points in order to influence the energy flow in the body.

Finally, there is electrical acupuncture in which electrical impulses are sent via the acupuncture needles. This electrical stimulation actually activates the acupuncture points, which leads to an increased effect.

Various tools are used in acupuncture, such as needles, moxa, laser devices and special tools for acupressure. These tools are responsible for regulating the energy flows in the body and thus improving health and well -being.

Fine needles

When performing acupuncture, fine needles are used to stimulate specific acupuncture points in the body. Depending on the acupuncture point, needles of different lengths are used. The puncture depth also varies and depends on the thickness of the tissue at the relevant area.

In the head area, the needles are only stabbed slightly because the fabric here is less thick. This means that the needles do not penetrate as deeply as in other parts of the body. The acupuncture points in the head area are mostly easily accessible and therefore require less stitching depth.

In contrast, the needles are pierced deeper in areas with thicker muscles. This is necessary to achieve the desired effect on the corresponding acupuncture point.

Fine needles are specially developed for acupuncture in order to cause the most minimal pain as possible and to minimize the risk of side effects. By using fine needles, the acupfunker can work precisely and optimize the stimulation of the acupuncture points.

All in all, fine needles enable effective and precise implementation of acupuncture, whereby the puncture depth is adapted depending on the acupuncture point and thickness of the tissue.

Sterile disposable needles

Sterile disposable needles are medical instruments that can be used for different applications. They usually consist of stainless steel or plastic and have specific sizes that depend on the use. The sizes vary from very thin needles with a diameter of just a few millimeters to larger needles with a diameter of several centimeters.

These disposable needles are used in medical practice, for example to inject medication, take blood or take tissue for biopsic examinations. They are hygienically packaged and sterile to minimize the risk of infections.

There are different types of disposable needles that have been developed for specific purposes. The common species include, for example, injection needles, cannulas, infusion needles and blood sampling needles. Every kind has its own characteristics and use.

The use of sterile disposable needles offers numerous advantages. One of the most important advantages is to reduce the risk of infection. Thanks to their sterile packaging and the one -way character, they minimize the risk of cross contamination. In addition, they are easy to use and enable precise dosage of medication or efficient blood sampling.

Overall, sterile disposable needles are indispensable instruments in medical practice. Your use guarantees security for both medical specialist and patients.

Set needles

In acupuncture, the needles along the meridians and acupuncture points are set. Meridians are energy channels in the body, along which the life energy, also called Qi, flows. The acupuncture points are located along these meridians and can regulate the flow of energy through their stimulation.

The choice of needle placement depends on the clinical picture or the patient's symptoms. Depending on which meridian or which acupuncture points are affected, the needles are set at the corresponding places. Each meridian has different acupuncture points, and the selection takes place individually according to the needs of the patient.

The number of needles that are set per session generally varies between 5 and 20. This also depends on the therapist's treatment strategy. The depth of the staircase also varies and can range from a few millimeters to several centimeters. The exact location and depth of the needle setting is determined by a qualified acupunctor who takes into account the specific meridians and acupuncture points of the patient.

Acupuncture uses this specific placement of needles to compensate for the flow of energy in the body and to promote well -being. Due to the targeted stimulation of the acupuncture points along the meridians, various health problems can be treated.

Application of acupuncture

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese healing method that has been used for over 2000 years. By inserting thin needles at certain acupuncture points on the skin, the energetic flow in the body is to be regulated.

The application of acupuncture includes a variety of symptoms and illnesses, such as pain, allergies, digestive problems and stress. By targeted setting the needles at the corresponding acupuncture points, the metabolism is stimulated and regulation therapy is supported.

The acupuncture points, of which there are over 400 in the body, lie along the so -called meridians, in which the life energy, called Qi, flows. By inserting the needles at the right points, the energy flow in the body can be harmonized and strengthened.

The effect of acupuncture is based on the activation of the body's own healing mechanisms. By stimulating the needles, the body is stimulated and the blood circulation and energy flow are improved. This leads to a relief of pain and compensation for disorders in the body.

Acupuncture has established itself in Western medicine as an effective addition to conventional treatment methods and is estimated by many patients as an effective and gentle form of therapy. However, it is important to have acupuncture carried out exclusively by qualified specialists in order to ensure safe and effective application.

Acupuncture points in the body

Acupuncture points in the body are specific areas where the needles are inserted into the skin in order to treat certain health problems. In traditional Chinese medicine, these points are referred to as "meridians" and they are distributed along the entire body. Each point on a meridian has specific use and can be used to treat various disorders.

Some of the most important acupuncture points in the body are the "Yintang", which is located between the eyebrows and is used to reduce stress and relieve the headache. Another important point is the "Neiguan", which is about three finger width under the wrist. This point is often used in nausea and vomiting, for example in the event of travel sickness.

The "Zusanli" or "ST36" is another known acupuncture point, which is located just below the center of the knee. It is often used to improve digestion and treat exhaustion. Another important point is the "Sanyinjiao" or "SP6", which is four finger width above the inner ankle. This point is mainly used to treat menstrual complaints and to promote birth work.

Acupuncture points in the body are used in acupuncture to compensate for the flow of Qi, the life energy, in the body and solve blockages. Each point has its own specific effect and can be selected depending on the individual needs and treatment goals. Acupuncture is an alternative medical practice that has been used in many cultures for centuries to treat various health problems and improve general health.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture is an alternative healing method that comes from traditional Chinese medicine and has proven itself for thousands of years. But how exactly does acupuncture work?

The mode of action of acupuncture is conveyed via the nervous system. By setting thin needles at certain points on the skin, the body is stimulated to release various hormones and neurotransmitters. These biochemical substances then work in the body and can relieve pain, inhibit inflammation and improve general well -being.

Interestingly, the exact mode of action of acupuncture has not yet been conclusively explained. It is believed that the needle stimulation sends certain signals to the brain, which then triggers the release of the hormones and neurotransmitters. It is noteworthy that the exact positioning of the needles is apparently less important than the fact that stimulation takes place at all.

Despite the open questions about the exact mode of action, acupuncture has proven to be effective therapy for a variety of symptoms. It is used to treat acute and chronic diseases and find recognition both in conventional medicine and many people as supplementary therapy method.

What complaints does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture is a millennia -old Chinese healing method in which fine needles are set at certain points of the body to relieve different symptoms. This technique is based on the concept that the body is flowed through by energies, also known as Qi. If this energy is blocked or does not flow harmoniously, diseases and symptoms can arise. Acupuncture aims to restore the balance and the flow of energy by putting the needles at specific points connected to the affected organs or body regions. Acupuncture treatment can be effective in the event of a variety of symptoms and illnesses. This includes chronic pain such as back, neck and joint pain, headache and migraines. Acupuncture can also help with stress, anxiety and sleep disorders. It was also shown that acupuncture in the treatment of indigestion, especially irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and nausea is effective. In addition, acupuncture can relieve the symptoms of allergies, asthma and menstrual complaints. It is important to note that the effectiveness of the acupuncture from person to person can vary and it is advisable to see a qualified acupunctor in order to receive the best possible treatment.

Icing

Losing acupuncture is an alternative method based on traditional Chinese medicine. With this treatment, thin needles are placed on specific points of the body in order to harmonize the flow of energy and treat various disorders in the body. Acupuncture can also help with weight loss.

In addition to classic needle technology, there are other methods to influence the acupuncture points. One of these methods is moxibustion, in which heat is transferred to the acupuncture points in order to stimulate the flow of energy. Another method is laser acupuncture, in which a laser beam is used instead of needles to stimulate the points. Acupressure is also a form of acupuncture in which pressure on the points is exercised with the fingers or special tools. Finally, there is electro acupuncture in which low electrical currents flow through the needles to reinforce the flow of energy.

These special techniques can be used together with the classic needle technique to increase the effect of acupuncture and to promote weight loss. It is important to note that acupuncture alone is not enough to lose weight. It should always be used in connection with a healthy diet and regular physical activity. However, acupuncture can help regulate the metabolism, control the appetite and reduce stress, which in turn can make it easier to lose weight.

Acupuncture against stress

Acupuncture is a proven treatment method for stress. By inserting thin needles at certain points of the body, acupuncture can compensate for energy flows and promote stress relief. It is recommended to regularly undergo acupuncture treatment in order to achieve long -term results.

In addition to acupuncture, Chinese herbal therapy can be a good option to combat stress. By taking specially selected herbal mixtures, the symptoms of stress can be reduced and general relaxation can be promoted. It is important to consult a qualified Chinese herbal therapist in order to determine the individual needs and the right herb mix.

Another effective treatment method for stress is Tuina treatment. This traditional Chinese massage can solve tension, promote the flow of energy and reduce stress. Regular Tuina treatment can help to improve physical and mental relaxation and reduce stress.

Cupping therapy is also a recommended method for coping with stress. Special cupping glasses are placed on the skin and a vacuum is generated to improve blood circulation and solve tension. This can lead to deeper relaxation and lower the stress level.

To effectively combat stress, I recommend a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbal therapy, Tuina treatments and, if necessary, cupping therapy. Individual advice from a qualified therapist is advisable to find the best treatment method and the right treatment plan.

Acupuncture for menopausal symptoms

Acupuncture is a possible treatment option for menopausal symptoms. This alternative therapy method is based on traditional Chinese medicine and aims to restore the energetic balance in the body. Acupuncture can help relieve the symptoms in the menopause that triggered by the hormonal decline during menopause.

The most common menopause symptoms in which acupuncture can be effective are hot flashes, sleep disorders, mood swings, vaginal dryness and night sweat. During acupuncture treatment, fine needles are placed at certain points of the body in order to stimulate the energy flows in the body and restore the balance. This can alleviate the symptoms and improve the quality of life.

Acupuncture offers some potential advantages as a treatment option for menopausal symptoms. In contrast to hormonal therapies, no side effects or risks related to hormones are to be expected. In addition, acupuncture is a non-drug method that offers a natural treatment alternative.

Overall, acupuncture can help with a variety of menopause complaints. However, the effectiveness of the treatment can vary individually, so it is important to discuss this with an experienced acupunient and to determine an individual treatment strategy.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese healing method that has been practiced for thousands of years. With this alternative therapy, thin needles are stung into specific points of the body in order to regulate the flow of energy and restore the balance in the body. The basis of acupuncture lies in the presentation of energy railways in the body, the so -called meridians, along which the life energy, also called Qi, flows. By stinging the needles into certain points along this meridian, the energy flow can harmonize and the body's self -healing powers can be stimulated. Acupuncture is used for a variety of symptoms, including pain, migraines, stress, sleep disorders and even to support fertility. The treatment is usually painless and is considered relatively safe if it is carried out by a trained acupunctor. Acupuncture is becoming increasingly popular worldwide and is viewed by many people as a valuable addition to conventional medical treatment.

Ear acupuncture

Ear acupuncture is a special form of acupuncture in which needles are inserted into certain points on the ear cup. This microsystem represents the entire body on a reduced area and can treat various symptoms.

The areas of application of ear acupuncture are diverse. It has proven itself particularly in the treatment of chronic pain. By targeted setting the needles, pain can be alleviated and the body's self -healing powers can be activated. In addition, ear acupuncture can have a supportive effect on weight loss. By stimulation of certain points in the ear, the appetite can be regulated and the desire for food can be reduced. Smokers who want to stop smoking can also benefit from ear acupuncture. Treatment can help alleviate withdrawal symptoms and strengthen motivation to stop smoking.

Compared to the general acupuncture, ear acupuncture differs mainly from the specific microsystem of the ear. The ear cup represents the entire body in a reduced form and each body part is represented by a corresponding point in the ear. The stimulation of these points influences the associated part of the body. In contrast, general acupuncture focuses on the stimulation of points along the meridians throughout the body to restore the energetic balance.

Overall, ear acupuncture is an effective microsystem that is used for various symptoms. It offers an alternative treatment method for chronic pain, weight loss and smoking cessation.

Skull acupuncture

Skull acupuncture is a procedure in which certain regions of the head are used to display different areas of the body. This method is based on the assumption that the head represents a kind of map of the entire body, and that targeted stimulation of certain points on the skull can contribute to alleviating symptoms in the corresponding areas of the body.

In the case of skull acupuncture, needles are placed on the scalp at certain places in order to achieve the desired effects. This procedure can be used to treat a variety of symptoms, such as headaches, back pain, stomach problems or emotional disorders.

The different head areas used for body representation include, among other things, the area of ​​the forehead, the temples, the back of the head and the ears. By stimulating these specific head areas with the needles, the energy flow in the body is regulated and blockages are dissolved.

Skull acupuncture is a promising alternative treatment method that is becoming increasingly popular. It offers the possibility of naturally relieving symptoms without having to fall back on medication or invasive interventions. With the help of needles on the scalp, different areas of the body can be specifically addressed in order to improve the state of health.

Acupuncture - special techniques

The special acupuncture techniques are special methods of influencing the acupuncture points and thereby promoting healing. One of these techniques is moxibustion, in which dried moxacak is rolled to the acupuncture points or burned in the form of cigars. The heat stimulates the points and creates a pleasant feeling, which contributes to relaxation and pain relief. Moxibustion is often used for diseases such as arthritis, back pain and menstrual complaints.

Another method is laser acupuncture, in which the acupuncture points with a laser beam is targeted. The laser stimulates the points without needles, which is pleasant for sensitive people. Laser acupuncture can be used to treat skin diseases such as acne or for smoking cessation.

Acupressure is a technique in which pressure is exerted on the acupuncture points. This can be done with the fingers, but also with special massage devices. Acupressure can help with stress, headache and nausea.

Electrical acupuncture is another method in which electrical current is directed to the acupuncture points. This reinforces stimulation and can be used for pain, paralysis and neurological disorders.

Each of the special acupuncture techniques has its own advantages. The moxibustion offers deeper heat treatment, the laser acupuncture is pain -free and acupressure can be carried out without additional devices. Electrical acupuncture enables precise and controlled stimulation. There are a variety of areas of application for these techniques, from pain therapy to the treatment of the musculoskeletal diseases to the relief of psychological stress. Overall, the special acupuncture techniques offer a variety of options to improve health and well-being.
