Acupuncture and trigger point therapy: eliminate pain, even in the acute phase

Both of these techniques are art of reflex therapies.

Acupunture is defined as the loss of stability in various functional systems, and is treated by modifying the activity of one or more of these systems through the action of needles, pressure and heat applied to sensitive, small-sized body parts called “acupuncture points”. There are twelve main channels, called meridians, vertically running along the body, bilaterally and symmetrically. Acupuncture is recommended for disorders such as: headache, migraine, insomnia, depression, smoking addiction, herpes zoster, constipation.

The less well-known Trigger Point therapy consists of micro-injections in the acupuncture points of "simple" physiological fluid. The same benefits of acupuncture in just 5 minutes of sitting.

Acupunture


Acupuncture is a therapeutic technique that promotes health and well-being by inserting very thin needles into particular points on the body.
In China the practice of acupuncture has been reported since the 3rd millennium BC, and related archaeological finds have been dated to the Han dynasty, (from 202 BC to 220 AD).
Acupuncture considers the human body as a whole that involves numerous "functional systems" (physical organs). The disease is interpreted as the loss of stability between the various functional systems, and the treatment of the same is done by modifying the activity of one or more of these systems, through the action of needles, pressure and heat, in sensitive parts and of small dimensions of the body called "acupuncture points". There are therefore twelve main channels, called meridians, which extend vertically, bilaterally and symmetrically; each channel corresponds and connects internally to each of the twelve organs.
According to the Chinese medical tradition theory acupuncture works by normalizing the flow of the "qi" or "vital energy" of the body. Pain and diseases are treated by working on the local or systemic accumulations or deficiencies of qi. If we assume that pain indicates a block or stagnation of the vital energy flux, an axiom of acupuncture-related medical literature is: ”no pain, no block; no block, no pain”. Acupuncture is recommended for disorders such as: headache, migraine, insomnia, depression, smoking addiction, herpes zoster, constipation.

Trigger point therapy


It is inspired by the therapeutic technique of acupuncture.
It consists of small injections of physiological solution at Trigger points, in other words the most inflamed points. The liquid acts like the needle in a session of acupuncture, detoxifying the treated area. In addition, this technique can be used in the acute phase.
