What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is where sensory nerves underneath the skin and in the muscles are stimulated, typically using acupuncture needles to better target these nerves. It is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine, and while many use it for therapeutic purposes, others opt to use it to prevent pain.
How does acupuncture work?
Your body will produce natural substances, like pain-relieving endorphins, as a result of the stimulation of these sensory nerves through the use of acupuncture needles. When used in the long term, many find that they can provide long-lasting relief from pain. It is used in many pain clinics and hospices around Ireland.
What is acupuncture used to treat?
Acupuncture is a popular alternative medicine because of the number of problems it can help with. Many people suffering from chronic tension headaches or migraines get significant relief from this. Some acupuncturists will use it to treat other problems such as chronic pain, joint pain, postoperative pain, and dental pain.
What is good acupuncture aftercare?
Experts recommend taking it easy after your acupuncture session, as well as going light on exercise. It is also suggested that you should avoid alcohol and coffee, as you want to stay hydrated and both of these drinks can have a dehydrating effect on your body.
What are the possible side effects of acupuncture?
Following an acupuncture session, you may find that your pain symptoms get worse before they get better. You may also feel fatigued, sore, and in need of rest. For some, their skin may bruise where they have had the needles inserted into the skin. Others experience an emotional release and may feel more sensitive for a time.
