Long before HMO’s, family practice
and medical malpractice insurance ever entered the stage,
acupuncture was already an ancient art. It’s been
around for millennia, but unlike passing medical “fads”,
acupuncture is here to stay.
As a matter of fact, acupuncture – along with many other forms
of alternative medicine – is back in full force. What was once
a sacred study, centralized in Asian countries has now stormed across
the entire planet, penetrating into even the most “traditional” Mid-Western
Now Acupuncture is taught and practiced all over the
world in many countries and each country uses their own
individual style and technique. Germany has its own style
and technique as does Japan, Korea, Australia, France,
Russia and Italy. Besides these countries already mentioned,
there are still many others that use their own acupuncture
techniques. But it should be said that most of these
different and varied styles of acupuncture were derived
from the Traditional Chinese Medicine health care system
and then modified to some degree.

Acupuncture as a sole treatment method became very popular, especially
during the early 1970's when then President Nixon opened the doors
to China. Many of his representatives were in awe when they toured
different Chinese hospitals and observed first hand the wondrous results
of acupuncture and oriental medicine techniques. By the middle and
late 1970's, acupuncture was being taught in oriental medicine universities
in the United States and about the same time, different healing professions
began teaching brief instruction courses on the subject.
A Simple, Easy-to-Understand
Explanation of Acupuncture
Chiropractic, Oct 26, 2006 by Amaro, John
One particular request I hear more often than anything
else is for help in explaining what acupuncture is and
how it works. As one reader put it, "[I find] myself
sometimes tongue tied when I'm asked to describe how
acupuncture works. I hear myself and I sound like I'm
spouting mumbo jumbo."
Bear in mind that our typical patient is a contemporary
Western patient who has grown up under the guidance and
care of allopathic physicians - receiving myriad vaccinations,
a history of taking a variety of prescription and over-the-counter
medications - and who is now developing an interest in
complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Acupuncture
and TCM are totally new to them, and even though they
have heard positive remarks as to its clinical success
and see it as the possibility of redemption of their
problem, it remains controversial and, if anything, just "weird." Though
they don't question their medical practitioner regarding
how a specific medication works physiologically and pharmacologically,
this is not the case with acupuncture; almost everyone
wants to know exactly how it works.
So, what is acupuncture and how does it work? These
are two of the paramount questions people ask. Of course,
the other significant questions are, Can it help me?
How long will it take? Since every case is different
in terms of length of treatment, and the possibility
of helping varies according to the extent of the condition,
the only thing that might be answered generically is, "What
A doctor uses acupuncture to treat a patient. body.
Balance within the body depends on the interplay
between two forms of energy, called yin and yang.
When these forces are in harmony, the body is healthy.
When either force becomes dominant, disease or
pain occurs. Acupuncture restores the balance between
yin and yang by tapping into the body's channels,
or meridians, through which these energy forms
What about the acupuncture meridians themselves?
Bear in mind that most have never heard of such
an unusual concept. We are basically knowledgeable about
nerves, blood vessels, muscles, etc., as one can visualize
and actually demonstrate hard evidence of their existence.
Suddenly, we are presented with a concept of invisible meridians that
carry invisible qi energy. May have never encountered anything
so mystical regarding the human body; suddenly, we're are
being asked to accept with blind faith a concept that goes
beyond their general understanding of anatomy and physiology.
When I explain the meridian system
of the body,
|He shows people a graphic of a meridian;
for example, the Foot Shao Yang (Gallbladder) meridian
.He explains to them that even though the ancients
recognized and discovered the meridian system thousands
of years ago, science today is recognizing the electromagnetic
potential of the body, which is what the meridian
system is based on.
Today we have electrical muscle exams (EMGs), magnetic resonance
imaging (MRI) and other tests based on the body's basic biomagnetic
system. Science and the medical profession have accepted the existence
of the meridian system as an integral part of human functioning;
it controls and coordinates the electromagnetic system of the body,
which might control all other systems of the body.
He continues to explain that the meridian system is
very similar to radio, in that radio waves likewise cannot
be seen by the human eye, but we all understand they
do exist. Meridian acupuncture compares to radio in that
if a city has 12 radio stations, much like our 12 meridians,
it is imperative that each specific station broadcast
at its individual frequency. In other words, if a station
is operating at 94.5 on the dial, it comes in loud and
clear; however if it comes in at 94.4 or 94.6 the radio
broadcast is only static. There is nothing wrong with
the radio; the fine tuning is out of adjustment. A simple
adjustment to the radio will bring it into full normalcy.
Two very different theories
exist as to how acupuncture works. According
to Chinese philosophy,
contains two opposing forces: yin and yang. When
these forces are in balance, the body is healthy.
Energy, called "qi" (pronounced "chee"),
flows like rivers along pathways, or meridians,
throughout the body. This constant flow of energy
yin and yang balanced. However, the flow of energy
can sometimes be blocked, like water getting stuck
behind a dam. A disruption in the flow of energy
can lead to illness.

Acupuncture deals with homeostasis or the body's ability
to maintain balance. The person who is out of balance
electromagnetically becomes ill and expresses specific
symptoms. This explanation is simple to understand and
best of all, simple to remember . Hopefully this allows
us to have a much better understanding of electromagnetic
balance and what might occur when each meridian becomes

What conditions are most often treated with acupuncture?
In veterinary medicine, there is evidence of the success of acupuncture for
treating disorders of the reproductive, musculoskeletal, neurologic, pulmonary,
gastrointestinal and dermatologic systems. The most common conditions that
are treated include traumatic nerve injuries, intervertebral disk disease,
degenerative myelopathy, epilepsy and other central nervous system disorders;
asthma, allergic dermatitis, lick granulomas; and chronic pain such as that
caused by degenerative joint disease.
Acupuncture can be used in
conjunction with general anesthesia,

The use of acupuncture
for treating illnesses and relieving
pain dates back thousands of
years in China. Continuous refining
of the process and monitoring

of "alternative" became
accepted by western health professionals.
Scientific evidence for the mechanism of action is extensive.

One Acupuncture Point Everyone Should Know?
This method joins contemporary science
and traditional acupuncture.
"Scientists began lab experimentation with
lasers in the 1950s, with availability outside the lab
in the 1960s. Once the quest for laser knowledge began,
it was unstoppable. Researchers wanted to know how this
new kind of light could change the world of healthcare.
Early laser experiments resulted in the realization that
laser therapy minimized skin scarring, helped wounds heal
faster, and affected cellular metabolism.
In the 1970s serious research began both
in Russia and in the USA. By the 1980s, due to numerous
positive reports, laser started to gain recognition as
an effective method of stimulating acupuncture points without
the use of needles" Kimberly Thompson, LAc
"In 1991, a study was done in Novosibirsk,
Russia that applied directly to the study of acupuncture.
Researchers shined light on various parts of the
and found that light traveled under the skin to other
acupuncture points, but it didn't travel to places
that were not on acupuncture meridians. It appears
that the body contains a sort of fiber optic network—where
light enters an acupuncture point, travels through
the meridian and can be detected at other places
along the meridian with a sensitive photon detector.
is a fascinating study showing how light is actually
received, used and transmitted throughout the body. "
also called acupuncture point irradiation, laser needle,
light needle, light acupuncture, etc, it is basis of laser
energy, it can stimulate acupuncture points exterior or
interior directly .
Most lasers used in acupuncture are known
as low-level lasers or "cold lasers," (because they don't
produce heat.). These are not the same as lasers used for
laser surgery, in which "hot lasers" are used
as a scalpel to burn or cut. Studies show that low-level
lasers can help regenerate cells, decrease pain, reduce
inflammation, improve circulation, and stimulate hair growth,
to name a few examples.
1) no pain: low power laser, .
2)Only irradiates acupuncture point,
no harm to skin. On the contrary, it been seen to repair
promote skin recovery.
3)Easy operation and portable.
4) Populare with clients in treatment centers (no needles
. Infrared Laser
Infrared laser light is the wavelength in scope of 0.76-400
micronmeter, it is invisible. Modern Physical call it
as thermal ray. Medical infrared ray have two kinds:
and far-infrared, our health-care infrared is near-infrared.
Near-infrared is shortwave infrared, the wavelength 0.76-1.5
mecronmeter, it can penetrate into the skin about 5-10mm;
far-infrared is longwave infrared, the wavelength 1.5-400
mecronmenter, only penetrate 2mm in the skin.
4. Physiological Function and Treatment Function of Infrerad
1) The treatment with infrared: When infrared irradiate
the acupuncture point, it can effectively distend capillary,
accelerate the blood flow, enhance material metabolism
and histocyte regeneration. Infrared treats chronic
inflammation, improve blood circulation, enhance the
ability of cell phagocytosis, eliminate tumefaction and
Infrared can reduce the excitability of nervous system,
and, eliminate muscle spasm, .
