Facts and myths about Acupuncture. Zen Acupuncture of Milpitas

Facts and myths about acupuncture - an article from doctor Yang from Zen Acupuncture Clinic in Milpitas.

Acupuncture is painful

Does acupuncture hurt? Despite the fact that it is a procedure that involves piercing the skin with a metal needle, it is not painful. Acupuncture needles are very thin and flexible, so they can "slip" into the body shell without cutting them (as is the case with injection needles). The sensations during the procedure can be so pleasant that many people fall asleep without feeling any unpleasant ailments.

Acupuncture is only used as part of folk medicine

This common concept has nothing to do with the truth. Acupuncture is an element of traditional Chinese medicine, which dates back over 2,000 years! It is an incomparably long internship in relation to the medicine we know - based on surgery and pharmacology - dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends acupuncture as part of the treatment of over 200 diseases, which directly proves its effectiveness.

The action of acupuncture is based solely on the placebo effect

This is a belief which, fortunately, is slowly dominated by subsequent scientific reports. Thanks to modern technology, it is gradually possible to understand and explain how acupuncture works and how it brings such great effects. Numerous studies have shown that acupuncture points are strongly associated with places of compaction of the fascia (that is, the tissue that surrounds every organ of the human body). From year to year, there are more and more reports justifying the effects of acupuncture, and its high effectiveness, which is certainly not due to the belief in the procedure itself.

Acupuncture only treats pain

Acupuncture is useful for many health conditions, says dr Yang from Zen Clinic in Milpitas, CA. Pain heals so effectively that it is very often a supplement to the treatment of pain in cancer, where no pharmacological agents, including morphine, bring any beneficial effects. Auriculotherapy (ear acupuncture) has been shown to be a very effective method of dealing with pain. Chinese medicine and acupuncture can also effectively treat other diseases such as: asthma, digestive system ailments, addiction to stimulants, and dizziness. Acupuncture also supports neurological diseases.
