Clinical Acupuncture with Dr. Alan Luck
Acupuncture is the act of placing needles through the skin to help alleviate pain. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture is based on the flow of “qi” or energy throughout the body. Specific points are chosen in order to aid that flow of energy.
Clinical acupuncture is the utilization of TCM acupuncture techniques in an everyday setting. Many common conditions http://apps.who.int/medicinedocs/en/d/Js4926e/5.html validated by the World Health Organization, are readily treated by acupuncture and have great results. Things like low back pain, neck pain, and knee pain, just to name a few.
Acupuncture has numerous effects which include muscular relaxation, pain modulation, changes in autonomic activity (vasomotor tone, cardiac rhythm, peristalsis), diverse neuroendocrine and immune responses, general relaxation, and a feeling of psychophysical well being.
