Acupuncture as Ancient and Modern Spiritual Healing Method
2/1/2015

Historically, acupuncture originated centuries ago in Ancient China, and considered as a method of spiritual healing. The inventors of acupuncture believed that the energy in the body flows through different channels or pathways. When disruption occurs in these channels, then there is an imbalanced energy. Thus, acupuncture is performed in restoring the balanced or normal energy flow.

Acupuncture Treatments

Acupuncture is believed to treat some ailments due to an imbalanced energy flow in the body. Although this method has been known as a spiritual healing, it was also considered as a pain control technique. Throughout the method, needles are inserted to the nerves, which are responsible for sending the pain message towards the brain. Clinical experiences also indicate that acupuncture can treat eye and mouth problems, respiratory ailments, neurological, muscular, and gastrointestinal disorders. It is also performed in order to regulate blood pressure, insomnia, anxiety, asthma, skin disorders, allergies, and relieve constipation. However, the method has been very effective in curing back pains, migraine, and headaches.

Basics of Acupuncture

Acupuncture basically means ‘to puncture with a needle’, thus, fine and flexible needles are being used throughout the technique. The needles are inserted into the prime meridian points of the body. Acupuncturists believe that the body is composed of networks of energy channels known as ‘Chi’. Each meridian point has an associated internal organ and physiological system. Acupuncture deals with the 12 prime meridian points of the body, stimulating the energy flow and turning it to its normal state. The entire process may involve physical or bodily procedures, but acupuncture boils down to emotional enhancement and spiritual healing.

How Safe Is Acupuncture?

Therapeutic claims of this technique are based on the clinical experiences and testimonials of clients. Changes in the body are unpredictable, and so are the effects of acupuncture in one’s physiological system. The body will need proper diagnosis, correct stimulation, and precise acupuncture procedures, allowing it to heal eventually. This healing technique can be complimented with other traditional western medicine, but ensuring licensed and registered acupuncturists is vital before making an appointment. Acupuncture as a spiritual healing technique is popular not only in China, but is also a famous practice in countries worldwide.
