WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese art of healing. Has become very popular as in many diseases, which are resistant to conventional forms of therapy, acupuncture has proved remarkably effective.
HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?
NEEDLING CAN BRING SIX DIFFERENT EFFECTS
Acupuncture’s analgesic effects can be divided into local, spinal and brain effects and involve the enhanced release of analgesic substances e.g. opioids, endorphins and reducing the release of pain-inducing substances such as inflammatory cytokines but also cortisol.
Some people may fall asleep during treatment. It has been shown that there is a decrease in delta and theta wave activity on the electro – encephalogram during acupuncture treatment.
Meaning: regulatory effect. Adjustment of the internal environment of the body towards a state of normal balance.
Generally, homeostasis is maintained by the balanced activity of the sympathetic and parasympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system and also by the endocrine system. In addition, there are numerous homeostatic mechanisms in the body for regulating the respiration, heart rate, blood pressure, urinary excretion, metabolic rate, sweating, temperature, ionic balance of the blood and more.
Body resistance to disease is strengthened. This is due to an increase in leucocytosis, antibodies, gamma globulins and other substances, which increase the resistive powers of the body. That makes acupuncture very useful in combating infections. Combining acupuncture with the use of herbal formulas can significantly support the body during cold and flu season
Anti-inflammatory affects multiple biological systems: the immune, digestive, respiratory, nervous, locomotory, circulatory, endocrine and genitourinary systems. It is well known that the localized acupuncture-mediated inflammatory effect involves the regulation of multiple populations and functions of immune cells, including macrophages, granulocytes, mast cells and T cells.
Involves antidromic stimulation of the anterior horn cells and their reactivation through a biofeedback mechanism, operating through the Renshaw and Cajal cells of the spinal cord or they are cranial equivalents.
