How Herbs & Acupuncture Can Improve Your Health

How Do Herbs & Acupuncture Work Together?

herbsAfter millenniums of studying how herbs and medical manipulation can be joined to enhance the well-being and comfort of persons in pain, eastern acupuncturists developed a form of heat therapy known as moxibustion. Today, acupuncturists use this revolutionary practice to remedy countless sicknesses and syndromes.

To begin this treatment, a certified acupuncturist wraps dried herbs, known as mugwort or moxa, around a sanitized needle. Next, the practitioner lights the herbs until they are smoking. Once the heat has traveled down the needle and reached the tip, the acupuncturist will insert the needle into a pain point in the body. Feeling a warming sensation, the patient will experience an invigoration of blood and energy flow throughout their body.

What Are Some Acupuncture Benefits?

Since the 16th century, Chinese doctors have used herbs and acupuncture therapy to treat various diseases and physical discomforts. Regarding ailments, acupuncturists can use trigger point acupuncture to remedy issues such as arthritis, ulcers, hypothyroidism, IBS, constipation, gallstone disease, shingles, and colitis conditions. Herbalists can use mugwort to treat pain reduction from allergies aches and menstrual cramps to back pain and neck injuries. Furthermore, moxibustion can boost a person’s mood and decrease feelings of depression. Lastly, alternative medicine can be used to help overcome drug addiction, alcoholism, smoking, and obesity.
