First of all it's not that kind of needle you would find just lying around anywhere.
It's a fine like needle that has been carefully designed to penetrate the skin in the most nicest way possible (I mean it's still a needle but a nice one)
It's smaller than an injection needle.
.08mm bigger than your hair strand.
And creates healing utilizing your body's own resources.
Resources meaning: Blood, Fluids and Nutrients.
Acupuncture has been around for centuries and over time has become a sensation in the modern world of healing. Scrap that, it's still traditional and not modern. But it's used in our modern society for many different kinds of conditions that have newly arisen in comparison to what was treated 200 years ago.
Things like: Endometriosis, PCOS and Adult acne just to name a few.
When you first think of Acupuncture you may associate it with a treatment for people with pain.
It's much more than that.
It can help treat conditions like: Colds + Flus, Asthma, Digestive disorders, Menstrual problems, Skin Conditions, Sleep Issues and pretty much anything you can think of.
Acupuncture is designed to be specific with it's placement based on each person.
Each person has a different DNA set, different childhood, food patterns, lifestyle, mindset and family history.
The body is made up of many different pathways, what we call them, meridians in Chinese Medicine.
These meridians link to every organ in the body and run throughout every limb, finger, toe, face and every other aspect of the body.
Acupuncture activates these meridians to carry out a response within the body, wherever that meridian travels throughout the body and it's associating organs.
Wherever there is an imbalance then acupuncture puts it back to balance through needles.
On a more scientific note.
Needling the body creates a microtrauma effect.
Microtrauma occurs when the brain senses something foreign in the body and sends out blood and nutrients in a series of healing processes. Therefore creating healing.
Whatever health condition it may be, acupuncture is a great natural alternative to healing.
