By the 6th century, acupuncture had spread to different countries in Asia. Sun Med uses a gentle style of acupuncture, derived from Japan. It incorporates Japanese techniques of meridian therapy to the concept of acupuncture. With thin, safe, and sterile needles, our acupuncture is proven to be gentle, effective, and safe.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
The classical theory on how acupuncture works is through the flow of Qi throughout the body. According to acupuncture theory, qi flows throughout the body along 12 channels. These channels are known as meridians. Modern science has shown that these meridians follow the empty space between blood vessels, nerves, muscle and fascia throughout the body. In this space is where we find gasotransmitters. Or the gases of the body like Nitric Oxide.
Acupuncture uses fine sterile needles gently inserted into specific acupuncture points in the body’s meridians. The needles speak to the brain and allow communication to open back up between the muscles, and the organs. Research shows that acupuncture influences the activity of all sorts of neurotransmitters, hormones, gasotransmitters and accesses the internal pharmacopeia that exists naturally in the body. So when you get acupuncture it’s like accessing your own pain killers, anti inflammatories and happy hormones without the need to take a pill.
Essentially acupuncture creates better circulation between the whole body whether that be through the nervous system or digestive system, muscles or your blood. Acupuncture is your one stop shop for generating great circulation which creates great wellbeing.
