Acupuncture

Acupuncture points are seen as places where nerves, muscles, and connective tissue can be stimulated. The stimulation increases blood flow, while the same time trigger the activity of the body’s natural pain killer 

In some research has find that C-fibers, which a pain receptor are actually branch exactly at the specific acupuncture points, where the bundle of nerves exists to maintain excitement or stimulating. By the insertion of acupuncture needle, it disrupts this circuit and numbs our sensitivity to pain

TCM have believed that the body contains Meridians, these meridians are invisible specific pathways in the body which life force energy call “Qi” flow through. As long as Qi flow smoothly through the meridians and the organs work in harmony the body can remain healthy 

According to TCM principle ‘The pain” is visualized as a result of the obstruction and stagnation of Qi and blood in the meridian – using acupuncture needle is aim to dredge the meridian, remove the sluggishness of qi and blood and improve flow of vital force, therefore the pain is subsided

Cupping therapy

Cupping therapy is the method of placing a cup over the skin and applying suction and negative pressure along the meridian channels and strives to dredge the channels pathway and stimulate free flow of Qi.

  • The theory behind cupping
    • Sedate nerve system – known as “provide relief through a pressure”
    • Encourage blood flow
    • Stimulate lymphatic drainage in the area being treat 
    • Promotes healing 
  • Cupping is combined with acupuncture in one treatment, but it can also be used alone. 

How the cupping work

  • Initially it pulls blood into an area of cupping. The tissues get saturated with fresh blood while the vacuum pulls stagnant blood out of the area. 
  • As new blood is forced into the tissues around the cups the body will begin to develop new blood vessel formation
  • As the new vessels form they will have the capability to feed the tissues with nutrient and oxygen, thus it induces healing process 
  • When the vacuum occurs it causes separation of the different layers of tissue which can cause micro trauma and minor inflammation.
  • Inflammation is the first line of healing. The body releases white blood cells, platelets, fibroblasts and other healing chemicals to promote healing.
