Acupuncture Treatment

Traditional acupuncture treatment consists of inserting very fine needles at specific points on the skin. More recently, electrotherapy and laser therapy have also been used to stimulate acu-points. These points are located near nerve endings, and are connected to one another by energy flowing along pathways called meridians. A meridian or channel is a course along which many acupuncture points are located, which helps in treating a particular organ of the body, or its associated structures.

The insertion of a needle at a precisely defined point on the skin has two effects; one is that it stimulates specific nerves which transmit electrical impulses via the spinal cord and the brain to the diseased area. Nerves control almost all the bodily functions and activities. When stimulated, some nerves will, for example, increase the movements and flow of the digestive system, while others will decrease it. The same principle applies to the increase or decrease of the heart rate, the expansion or contraction of the blood vessels, the flow of tears, the tone of the muscles, the growth rate, the production of mucus, the tone of the skin, the secretion of hormones, the sensation of the skin, the secretion of hormones, etc. The nervous system can well be compared to the electronic control apparatus of a highly complex machine such as our modern computer or an automatic pilot. The most important thing is that the body tries to maintain itself within normal vital parameters. This is called homeostasis.

Secondly, acupuncture has been shown to stimulate the release of chemical substances from the brain centers and pituitary gland. These substances are known as enkephalins, endorphins, serotonin, dynorphin, and others. They are released and carried in the blood stream, and are the body’s own mechanism for pain relief.


Ancient physicians explained acupuncture as based on the philosophy of Taoism and the Five Element Theory of Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood.

The ancient healers believed that Qi (Vital Energy or Prana Shakti), the essence of life, flowed along the acupuncture channels just as blood flows along the blood vessels, and it is the uninterrupted flow of this energy which keeps human beings alive and healthy. If it is impeded in any part of the body the result will be disharmony or dis-ease. The acupuncturist aims at re-establishing the normal flow of Qi by stimulating certain strategic points. Perhaps the flow of Qi along a meridian, and the flow of electrical energy along a nerve, can be explained in two different ways; one ancient and one modern, expressing the same concept.


The most characteristic method of diagnosis used in acupuncture is the pulse diagnosis. The radial artery is felt at both wrists in order to determine the variation in elasticity of the arterial wall in twelve different segments. These twelve segments correspond in the context of acupuncture to the twelve most important organs of the body, which in their turn control all bodily functions. For example, one of these twelve organs is the liver, whose dysfunction may be the cause of an obvious liver disorder like jaundice, but also of several less obvious disorders, such as anger, migraine, asthma, hay fever, depression, and constipation.
