Acupuncture Hemorrhoids

Acupuncture is one of the few ancient alternate medical therapies that is still in practice today. The concept originated in China and is a part of traditional Chinese medicine practice.

Acupuncture is predominantly used for treating nausea and pain by placing hair-thin needles in the skin. Needles are strategically placed at points, also called acupuncture points, meridians or channels for relief from these conditions. By placing these needles, flow of energy is improved and pain relief is the obvious result. Acupuncture needles are made from high-quality stainless steel, which doesn’t hurt when inserted at particular locations.

For hemorrhoids, acupuncture points are located along the channels in the body. Channels or meridians are located throughout the body, through which Qi flows. Qi is believed to be the primary responsible factor for maintaining normal functions of the body, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture practitioners at our hemorrhoids acupuncture Singapore clinic are trained and responsible for improving the flow of this life force in the body, thereby improving the overall physical health and functions.

At present, there are over a few hundreds of acupuncture points located in different parts of the body. Basically, the treatment aims to cure some medical conditions and relieve pain in various parts of the body. The basic principle of acupuncture is that different body parts are linked together through these meridians. Any obstruction and the system will be at risk. Hemorrhoids are also the result of such obstruction.
