An Ancient Chinese Practice with Modern Healing Benefits
Acupuncture is a 2,500-year-old Chinese healing practice that has been gaining in popularity among alternative medicine practitioners, including at Orth Chiropractic in St. Cloud. In fact, about 3 million Americans annually enjoy the health benefits of acupuncture! Acupuncture is based upon promoting the release of the body’s natural vital energy, or “chi”, via thin needles inserted under the skin at various stimulation points along energy pathways. Some scientists believe that the shallowly-inserted needles cause the release of natural painkillers, like endorphins, into the patient’s system, promoting pain relief and other healing benefits. The most common side effects of acupuncture tend to be temporary and include minor soreness at the insertion points.
