Acupuncture has been practiced in Asia for over 2,000 years. The goal of acupuncturists is to try to relieve symptoms and, more importantly, address the root cause of illness in order to restore balance and health.

How acupuncture works

Acupuncture involves placing extremely fine, sterile needles into specific acupoints along the channels of the body. It stimulates the release of the body’s own natural pain killers as well as molecules associated with tissue healing and disease resolution.

Much research has been done by scientists about how acupuncture works. The most widely accepted theory is the theory of Qi (a person's life energy) and how it flows along meridians (or channels) of the body. 

As long as this energy flows freely throughout the meridians, health is maintained. When this flow is disrupted or blocked, then pain and illness will occur.

By inserting needles into the selected points in the meridians, the normal flow of the energy can be restored, and health is restored. Acupuncture helps to stimulate specific points, dredge and unblock the meridians, regulate the organs, and regulate the circulation of the meridian.

The causes of blood stasis

1. Trauma: Various traumas, such as bruises, excessive weight-bearing, etc., or trauma to the skin, or internal injuries of the internal organs, keep blood away from the meridians, stay in the body, cannot be dissipated or discharged in time, or the blood does not run smoothly, resulting in blood stasis.

2. Bleeding: After bleeding, the menstrual blood fails to be discharged from the body and becomes stasis. The so-called "liquid blood is stasis." Or due to bleeding, specialize in stopping astringency, and use cold and cold, such as cold compress, to make the blood of the menstrual blood coagulate, and the blood of the non-menstrual blood stagnate and stagnate and form stasis.

3. Qi deficiency: Those who carry gas are blood, and those who carry blood are qi. Qi and blood flow, qi deficiency and weakness, blood stasis caused by stasis. Or qi deficiency can not control the blood, blood stasis outside the veins, this is due to stasis caused by deficiency.

4. Qi stagnation: Qi qi stagnates blood, qi stagnation and blood stagnation will cause blood stasis.

5. Blood cold: If the blood is warm, you can do it. Feeling the cold outside or the cold inside, the blood will be astringent and it will not run smoothly. 6. Blood fever: hot people camp blood, blood and heat intersect, or make the blood sticky and run poorly, or heat the veins, blood spilled between the organs of the viscera, can also cause blood stasis. It can be seen that cold and heat injury and blood veins can cause stasis. 7. Emotional and life discomfort: Internal emotional damage can also lead to blood stasis, mostly due to Qi stagnation. In addition, inappropriate diet can also lead to blood stasis and become sick.

What is Electro-acupuncture
