Try Alternative Therapies Like Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most used complementary and alternative medical treatments in the world. It typically is not considered a stand-alone treatment but a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners believe that energy known as Qi circulates throughout the body along specific pathways called meridians. Good health is maintained as this energy flows freely throughout these channels. This provides patients with pain relief, re-balancing of the body’s energy fields, improved blood circulation, digestive system, respiration and immune system. It also promotes relaxation and could help regulate hormones. Restoring the Qi energy pathways allow the body to relearn its own shortcuts to self-heal.
