What is acupuncture treatment?
Acupuncture has been used for several thousands of years and was developed in China and Asia as a traditional therapeutic method. It spread to Korea and Japan in about the 6th century and spread to Europe in the 17th century. It is still very popular throughout the whole word.
Acupuncture treatment is based on the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which has an extremely long history. Meridians and acupoints are the essential parts of TCM which espouses the belief that the human body contains an invisible network including meridians, collaterals and acupoints. The qi (vital energy) and blood flows through the body meridians system fluently in a health body. When the flow of qi in the meridians becomes blocked or is inadequate, the body fails to keep harmony and balance its physiological activities, consequently body disorders and illness occur after a period of time. The insufficient flow of qi and blood can be caused by environmental factors, poor diet, disease pathogens, emotional stress, overwork and lifestyle. Acupuncture treatment, usually combined with massage and moxibustion, can clear the blockages of qi and blood circulation and drive cold energies out of the body.
Acupuncture treatment is completed by the insertion of fine, sterile needles (for single use) into acupoints along the body’s meridians relative to the illness after skin sterilization treatment with skin cleansing treatment with 70% v/v isopropyl alcohol swab. Acupuncture usually is carried out with moxibustion, cupping, electro-stimulating and remedial massage treatment together.
Acupuncture treatment has effectively roles to stimulate and restore the flow of qi & Blood in the meridians and balance of Yin & Yang in the body, thereby leading to a healthy state for the body by heal itself function.
“Acupuncture is widely practised in the 21st century in scientifically developed countries for a wide range of ailments ranging from chronic pain,giddiness and high blood pressure to gastrointestinal disorders and sexual dysfunction. Yet the reasons for its vaunted efficacy remain a matter of controversy. In traditional Chinese medical theory, the mechanism of action in acupuncture was understood in terms of the flow of qi and the balance of yin and yang through the body’s meridians, a complex network painstaking charted but never found. Modern medical researchers have examined old and new needling points, and some view them as “trigger points” that stimulate physiological responses in the body. There is also clear evidence of strong placebo effects, although it has not been conclusively established that that this is either the main or the only significant effect.”

Why do you need a regular massage for your wellbeing?
First, massage treatment relieves the anxiety and fatigue caused by the modern high speeding daily life. “There are a rising number of people coming to be treated because of neck and shoulder problems incurred from sitting at a desk all day.” The president of the Australian Association of Massage Therapists (AAMT), Geoff Waldron has said.
And other common reasons for seeking a massage? “Usually people have a massage because they don’t feel well from a musculoskeletal point of view,” Waldron says. “They’re stiff, they have headaches, they can’t sleep properly or they’re sports people treating or preventing injuries.”
“Both areas are growing, not just because of ‘pamper culture’ but also because an increasing number of people have conditions that bother them, such as stress, sport injuries.” Waldron says.
When it comes to stress management, remedial massage lends a helping hand by relieving tension. “Massage releases the muscles so you relax and sleep better. You tend not to sleep well when you’re stressed,” he points out.
The remedial massage aims to restore function and promote a sense of wellbeing by combining a mixture of deep tissue massage therapies and acupressure therapeutic techniques. You also can try acupuncture therapy, cupping (a Chinese traditional therapeutic technique that employs vacuum cups) and trigger point therapy.
Sometimes you can’t rely on one single massage treatment to fix everything, it is better to have regular sessions for good result. When a client is experiencing muscular soreness, sometimes pain relief comes instantly, and sometimes it takes time to recover, depending on the individual. It is necessary to remind the clients to get on track as soon as possible.
While massage treatment may be a key way to relieve aches and pains, there’s no denying excellent massage also brings a relaxation experience to your life. A little soreness aside, massage generally feels great, don’t you think? According to the New Zealand Health Network, this is because the therapy refreshes tired and knotted muscles by stimulating the nerve endings in the superficial layers of the skin.
