Like Indian Ayurved therapy, acupuncture therapy from China is older than 3000 years, which is given recognition by World Health Organization in the year 1979. Then it is developed faster and today advanced technic known as ‘Electroacupuncture’ is more popular. The basic principle on which it works is ‘Tchi or Chi’ means the energy of life, i.e. ‘Pran’ what we call. The disease means an obstacle in the flow of ‘Chi’.
In acupuncture no medicine is introduced in the body and treatment is done by stimulating the inner energy of the body. The acupuncture expert gives treatment by applying needles on proper points of the body part.
After pricking needles on specific points of paining site, needles are stimulated with a machine so the intensity and frequency of stimulation is absolutely perfect. The patient does not have to exert as in physiotherapy, so it is very easy to take treatment. The treatment is given in prone or left or right lateral position of the patient as required.
Previously this treatment was given maximum for one or two hours, but as per new research, the patient can be given treatment for 2 to 4 hours continuously in a day and if it is taken twice in a day, duration will be for 4 to 8 hours. So patients suffered from paralytic attack or backache or who cannot move more, can stay here and take the treatment. In most of the cases, improvement occurs in two to three weeks. The patient can take medicines along with acupuncture treatment. If a patient is taking drugs for a long time it is withdrawn gradually.
Sometimes in some diseases, patient is advised to undergo surgery, or any other costly therapy, where the patient get disappointed that he or she has to live with this disease. But they should not get disappointed. Acupuncture is less expensive and time consuming comparing with other therapies.
