Acupuncture is a prehistoric Chinese technique of alleviating pain and treating different diseases by inserting needles into numerous parts of the body. According to Chinese philosophy, disease and pain occur due to an imbalance between two main forces of nature known as yin and yang. The Chinese believe that acupuncture refreshes this balance. Acupuncturists who are the experts in the process insert really sharp needles on many precise points in the meridians. Insertion of the needles creates a sharp pinching feeling.That feeling fades and is replaced soon by that tingling or lack of sensation, some sort of heaviness or soreness in the areas as the needles are stuck there.
Acupuncture is used to relieve pain and to treat a variety of conditions, including arthritis, asthma, migraine, ulcers, eye diseases, and some mental illnesses.It has been thought of as a good treatment for people who suffer from infertility.
Acupuncture as a process helps the nerves and muscles of the body for it to relax.Scientists believe in three major assumptions about how acupuncture works.One great assumption is that these meridians exist as they are attached to the body’s organs in a special manner.
Based on the theory, acupuncture is said to increase the level of activity in the meridians which in turn stimulates the body organs to function well.Scientists believe that acupuncture works in any part as it increases the brain’s production of endorphins also known as natural pain killers. It has been a theory as well that acupuncture may work through the entire nervous system as it generates signals that break off messages of pain sent directly to the brain.
People who are more likely to have acupuncture are those who have infertility concerns such as those who have blocked fallopian tubes and stress related infertility.Despite the fact that there is no scientific evidence that would show stress’s relationship with infertility, relaxation is found to be a definite treatment for infertility.Both men and women who have been diagnosed to suffer from infertility are recommended to take acupuncture as part of their treatment plan. In just 10 visits with an experienced acupuncture specialist, you would know if it would be able to help you with your infertility problems.
