Acupuncture To Quit Smoking By Victor Tsan, MD At Acupuncture Philadelphia

Acupuncture To Quit Smoking is effective and harmless treatment. Acupuncture is fast becoming popular in modern medicine. Although scientists are yet to grasp a full understanding of how it works, numerous scientific studies show that it actually works for all kind of pains. In addition to that, studies have started showing that acupuncture can work for many other illnesses like mental issues for example. A lot of doctors have started using acupuncture as a way to complement their medical practices, especially in cases for back pains related to pregnancy. Pain is a quite common phenomenon. Every “relatively normal” person has experienced physical pain at one time or another.

However, some drugs used for pains like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have the tendency to be harmful to the baby at some stages of pregnancy (the third trimester especially). In addition to this, some other painkillers like opioids can be addictive. In order to get rid of pains while avoiding these unwanted side effects, doctors may prefer to combine acupuncture with conventional medicine. Now let’s talk more about how acupuncture works and how we at the Philadelphia acupuncture clinic work towards giving you the best quality acupuncture you can get anywhere.

Acupuncture To Quit Smoking

Acupuncture To Quit Smoking Philadelphia:

The Philadelphia acupuncture clinic offers premium quality services in acupuncture. Acupuncture is a science as much as it is an art. You do not just go jabbing needles randomly in the body and all that. There are some special points in the body called channels and meridians which can stimulate energy flow in the body called Qi. If your Qi is not balanced, then there will be a tendency for you to fall sick or have health problems. Special techniques involving inserting, twisting or manipulating needles on these meridians and channels will help improve the flow of Qi and by extension improve your health. Acupuncture improves pain in many conditions without the side effects of conventional painkillers like addiction, worsening of ulcer and risks in pregnancy.

There is are significant risks of transmitting blood-borne infections (like hepatitis B or HIV) and damaging your nerves due to wrong acupuncture techniques. If you are worried about this, then you may not want to go for any surgery or receive any injection ever again because the risks are more or less the same as acupuncture. The point is these risks depends more on the acupuncturist than the procedure itself. The same as the risks of taking an injection or doing a surgery – it is more about the doctor than the procedure itself.
