A Complete Guide to Acupuncture Points: The Practical Guide to Heal Yourself of Every Common Illnesses Using the Therapeutic Needle Sticks

Dani Twain

Acupuncture is rooted in an understanding of the intricate network of energy channels, known as meridians, that course through the human body, facilitating the flow of vital energy. These meridians are intimately linked with internal organs, and any imbalance of energy within them can disrupt bodily functions. Acupuncturists possess the ability to regulate this energy flow by stimulating specific points along these meridians.

Each acupuncture point comprises a region of the skin and underlying subcutaneous tissue, characterized by a complex arrangement of microstructures such as blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue cells. These structures create an active zone capable of influencing nerve endings and facilitating communication between the skin and internal organs.

Distinctive features of acupuncture points include heightened oxygen absorption, elevated temperature, and reduced electrical resistance compared to surrounding skin areas. The size of these points varies depending on the individual's state, with diameters typically around one centimeter in waking individuals, slightly smaller in sleep, and potentially larger during periods of psycho-emotional stress or acute somatic illnesses.

Precise manipulation of acupuncture points can yield therapeutic benefits, ranging from pain relief and migraine management to addressing issues such as knee pain, neck pain, back pain, weight loss, depression, birth preparation, allergies, neurodermatitis, smoking cessation, Parkinson's disease, sleep disorders, stress-related complaints, and tinnitus. Additionally, acupuncture has found application in modern medicine for treating a broad spectrum of neurological, somatic, and psychosomatic disorders, contributing to overall health and well-being.
