Acupuncture is widely used to relieve stiffness associated with a variety of diseases and conditions, including labor pain, low back pain, menstrual cramps, respiratory disorders, such as allergic rhinitis, dental pain, chemotherapy-induced, and postoperative nausea and vomiting, and headaches, including migraines and tension headaches.
TCM Henderson, or Traditional Chinese Medicine, is based on an ancient philosophy that deals with the universe and the body in terms of two conflicting forces: yin and yang. The body is healthy if these forces are in balance. Throughout the body, energy called “qi” (pronounced ‘chee’) flows along specific pathways called meridians. Keeping the yin and yang forces balanced, there must be a constant flow of energy. The disruption can lead to pain, illness, or lack of function if the flow of energy gets blocked. Acupuncture therapy can stimulate the function and release blocked qi in the human body, eliciting the body’s natural healing support through various physiological systems. Acupuncture’s effects on the cardiovascular system, digestive system, nervous system, endocrine, and immune systems have been demonstrated by modern research. Acupuncture can help to resolve pain, sense of well-being, digestive function, and improve sleep by stimulating the body’s various systems.
The benefits of acupuncture point out that it successfully treats conditions ranging from musculoskeletal problems (neck pain, back pain, and others) to anxiety, depression, nausea, insomnia, infertility, and migraine headache.

If you have a skilled, certified acupuncture practitioner using sterile needles, the risks of acupuncture are low. Insignificant bleeding or bruising where the needles were inserted are the common side effects of acupuncture. The practice standard nowadays is single-use and disposable needles, so the risk of infection is at the least. Acupuncture is not for everyone. You may be in danger of complexities if you:
Pregnant women. Acupuncture stimulates labor, which could result in the premature delivery of the baby.
Have a bleeding disorder. If you have a bleeding dysfunction or if you are taking blood thinners, your chances of bruising or bleeding from the needles increase.
Have a pacemaker. Implementing mild electrical pulses to the needles can interfere with the pacemaker’s operation.
Tell your doctor you’re considering acupuncture. They may be able to tell you about the success rate of using acupuncture for your condition or recommend Acupuncture Henderson.
