The acupuncture contrasts
The area of acupuncture has had several angles since the start of its use in china. While the Chinese model and concept is based on the qi and the chi, known as the key points of acupuncture. It is the most common pain treatment mode in most traditional china.
The contrast of the Chinese and the western cultures is that the acupuncture in the western cases is based on the belief that the acupuncture points are the places in the body which are the energy balancing points. The balancing points are regarded as pathways in the body and inserting the acupuncture needles in these pathways makes the energy points be rejuvenated.
Because of the physical and psychological nature of different patients for instance some are quiet and sedate while others are agitated and restless, the approach and manner differs due to the difference in the energy levels .The energy deficient types can be treated with the use of needles and other known adjunct techniques such as moxibustion, the use of herbs. This is because the energy deficient symptoms respond well to the energy treatments better.
The patients with excess energy levels are thus found to respond poorly to the heat because they already have the ingredient in the muscles. They brings a bigger challenge and using needles on them can work but after a long period of time.
The rejuvenation of the energy points is usually an innovative way of fighting pain. The use of a mix of western medicine and the traditional acupuncture is usually a recommended mode of treating various nervous disorders which border on the issues as said in the Chinese medical journals.
So despite the wide use of acupuncture, it is good that the practice of the profession be done by one who is medically proficient to be able to know the magnitude and manner of switching from the acupuncture to the contemporary medicine.
With the facts, it is clear that acupuncture does not only involve the use of the needles on the skin but it is more than that because the energy levels of the patient needs to be taken into consideration before any treatment is commenced.
