Treatment through Acupuncture

Treatment through Acupuncture

By Dr. Dany Lousky

Acupuncture is a method of treatment typical of the physical dimension. Through acupuncture, it is possible to train and practice the ability to determine and realize objectives. In Chinese medicine, acupuncture is a primary method of treatment in every illness accompanied by pain. Acupuncture is a Chinese method in which very thin needles are inserted into different points of the body to stimulate certain points in the body. This stimulation causes a desired physiological response of the body and opens energetic obstructions in the body. Chinese medicine speaks of the different paths of energy in the body (meridians), through which the energy of life, called chi (the free will) flows and goes to each and every limb of the body, nurtures it, and protects it, as does the immune system (Pearle, 2000).
When an obstruction is created in the flow of the chi, due to different reasons, then pain is created. If this is a sudden obstruction, then a sharp and very strong pain is created. If this is a chronic, gradual obstruction, then the pain will be less strong but longer in duration. The release of the obstructions is accomplished through acupuncture or pressure on the key points along the meridians (channels of energy). In the next stage, the energy resumes flow freely and harmoniously and the pain disappears. Pressure on or acupuncture of the point between the thumb and finger, for example, can release obstructions in the energetic flow to the brain and consequently it can significantly ease headaches, sinusitis, toothache, etc. The needles ease the pain, since the acupuncture causes the body to release endorphins (endorphin is a pain-relieving hormone). Therefore, Chinese acupuncture is considered effective in the treatment of backaches, migraines, headaches, menstrual pains, joint pains, etc.
The realm of the easement of pains using Chinese acupuncture has been a subject of increasing research in recent years (Levy, 2006) . A comparative examination of a number of researches on the topic shows that Chinese acupuncture eases pains in up to 90% of the cases. The data of this research were collected in Germany from scores of participants. In the human body 400 points suited to acupuncture were identified. When a needle is inserted into a certain point of the body, the brain is stimulated to excrete endorphin. The acupuncture opens the energetic obstructions in the body and provides easement by opening the obstructions. According to Chinese medicine, there are twelve meridians in the body and these in essence are tracks of energy on the body upon which the acupuncture points are situated (Pearle, 2000). Acupuncture significantly eases different types of pain and saves the patient use of unnecessary drugs and thus the side effects that derive from the regular consumption of pain killers (Levy, 2006).
Integrated medicine is medicine that integrates treatment methods in each one of the four dimensions that comprise the whole person. The ability to determine and realize objectives is withheld form patients because of the body’s pains. Easing or avoiding the pain through acupuncture significantly helps improve the abilities (intelligences) in the physical dimension. In a situation of easement or good physical functioning, the person can determine and even realize objectives (Lousky, 2005).
