How Does Acupuncture Work?
Acupuncture and Electricity
Have you ever been in pain? Probably, we all have. Maybe it was back pain, neck pain, headaches, or sciatica. Acupuncture is one of the best ways to help you get out of pain.
There are many ways acupuncture helps to restore balance and provide pain relief in the body.
Here is one way to look at it:
Have you ever shuffled your feet across a shag rug carpet? Maybe you walked up to your brother, sister, pet, or were taking clothes out of the dryer and felt the static electricity? SNAP! Our bodies conduct electricity.
One of the ways that Acupuncture works is very similar to the build up of static electricity. Our bodies are truly amazing. One of the ways that our muscles move is through the movement of Positive and Negative ions in the muscles. That makes us Bio-Electric…we conduct electricity, but only in proper amounts.
Acupuncture helps to relieve pain by balancing the electrical charges in our body.
When a muscle is misbehaving in the body, people experience pain or other health problems. At least part of the problem is due to an imbalance of electric conductivity in the body. Acupuncture uses tiny, thread-sized pins that are placed in relation to the injury or area of pain to rebalance the body’s electrical balance.
Balancing the body’s electrical system is one of the ways acupuncture helps relieve pain and improve health. When our muscles are relaxed we feel less pain. Don’t forget that muscles surround our internal organs also. With that considered, we can also breath better, digest better, and sleep better…to name a few of the added benefits of acupuncture.
