If you’ve ever had chronic pain, the odds are that your doctor has never recommended going for acupuncture treatment, acupressure, or Chinese herbs. This is because the majority of Western physicians are usually unaware of the benefits of alternative treatments. But there’s growing evidence that acupuncture can be a healthier method of treatment instead of drugs, and the related side effects attached are much less risky than those of pharmaceuticals.

Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine with roots stretching back over 2,500 years. Its theory is that there are over 365 points on the human body that connect with 14 pathways. These pathways conduct the body’s energy, or qi, and proper flow of qi is essential to health and balance within the body. Through acupuncture, hair-thin metallic needles are inserted into specific combinations of these 365 points in order to correct or maintain the normal flow of qi.

Some of the more common ailments effectively treated through acupuncture therapy are:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Sciatica
  • Back pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golf elbow
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
