Compared to the “side effects” of drugs, acupuncture is considered healthy therapy. For health reasons, the public often think that since it is green therapy, it can be "repeated frequently" or even "every day." But in fact, acupuncture does not have the therapeutic effect of "infinite stacking," and the body will not benefit from it.
Acupuncture can stimulate acupuncture points and meridians to mobilize the body's ability to resist diseases and prevent diseases. Among them, acupuncture must be operated by professionals; however, moxibustion is not required, and it is relatively safe, easy to operate, and follows medical advice. Depending on the physical condition and season, people can choose different acupoints, such as Zusanli, Guanyuan, Qihai, Shenque and other acupuncture points to do health care moxibustion, and use point kneading, massage and other methods to obtain the effect of warming and replenishing yang.
If you want to improve the function of the spleen and stomach, you can press or moxibustion Zusanli every day: If you have problems sleeping, you can rub point at Shenmen Point every day. Before you go to bed, you should use Yongquan Point, press the Zhaohai Point, and rub the ear to help improve sleep.
Many people believe that the greater the number of acupuncture and the longer the time, the better the effect; but clinically found that long-term, continuous acupuncture stimulation or acupuncture treatment for many days does not guarantee the “infinite stacking” of acupuncture effects.
In most cases, such as chronic pain, fire needle acupuncture treatment, and menstrual disorders, it is necessary to have an appropriate treatment interval. This will help the patient to “get acupuncture and get qi”, which will help to correct the rickets. The so-called "acupuncture and qi" refers to the acupuncture treatment, or after a long period of time to retain the needle, so that patients with acid, hemp, swelling, heavy and other feelings, needles feel that the needle is tight.
The extent and duration of this acupuncture sensation are closely related to efficacy. Of course, some diseases such as acute pain, solid hiccups, exogenous cough, acute diarrhea, sudden deafness, etc., are suggested to be acupunctured by professional acupuncturists every day, even two or three times a day; at the same time, it is not recommended that the people blindly take care of their health. For acupuncture, the course of treatment should be selected according to the nature of the disease.
Acupuncture and moxibustion is a fine method of diagnosis and treatment. Before and after acupuncture, we must pay attention to some safety issues. Otherwise, it will not only have no curative effect, but it may also endanger health. Acupuncture can not be carried out under hunger, fullness, overwork or drunkenness. Before acupuncture, it is necessary to keep a relaxed mood, avoid emotional over-tension, no makeup, scrape tongue coating, and spray perfume, which will prevent doctors from assessing their health status. Especially before acupuncture, it is necessary to go to the toilet once to avoid discomfort after acupuncture to retain the needle (the needle is placed in the acupuncture point after the needle is inserted to strengthen the acupuncture and the continuous action of the acupuncture), or acupuncture to stimulate the bladder on the abdomen.
After acupuncture, you should pay attention to skin cleansing, but do not need to be disinfected. You don't need to touch dirty water, oil, etc.; besides, you can't bathe, wash your hair, touch cold water, go out with a hair dryer or air conditioner, otherwise the patient may have similar symptoms. Or a slight local infection in the eye. In addition, patients should take full rest. In recent decades, scholars have carried out scientific research on acupuncture. Apart from bone and joint diseases, acupuncture and moxibustion have vascular diseases, neurological diseases, chronic gastrointestinal diseases, nephropathy, respiratory diseases, endocrine diseases, beauty and weight loss, and some skin diseases. Significant effect.
However, there are still some incorrect ideas about the acupuncture awareness and the implementation of acupuncture. For example, “acupuncture points should not be bleeding” is a common misunderstanding. Clinically, some patients believe that acupuncture should not bleed. If you see bleeding after the needle is out, the patient, especially the first acupuncturist, will feel scared and think that "not good."
In fact, micro-vessels spread throughout the body. After acupuncture in acupuncture points, micro-vessels under the acupuncture points are sometimes punctured. If there is a small amount of bleeding on the skin after the needle is out, a small area of indigo is normal and it will not cause adverse health effects. "Bleeding" is not contraindicated in Chinese medicine therapy. For example, some fevers and phlegm-like diseases also use bloodletting therapy. So patients do not have to be over-stressed with a small amount of bleeding.
"It is a common misconception that leaking needles can cause the body to leak. This is especially true for elderly people and people with chronic illness who are not suitable for needles." The so-called "qi" in Chinese medicine theory refers to "righteousness", which is the function of the body's normal functions and organ organs. The healer can supplement the body's needs and enhance the function of the organs through the combination of relevant acupoints and appropriate acupuncture techniques. This is what acupuncture calls “qi addition” and there will be no “leakage”.
