More and more people are now open to the Eastern medicine and therapy, including the use of Asian styles of massage. Several types of massage originated from the east such as the shiatsu, reflexology, and the Thai massage. Aside from herbal medications originating from different parts of Asia, another exotic treatment that has achieved worldwide recognition is called acupuncture. It is one of the most common medical procedures practiced in China, Japan, Korea and other parts of the world.
Acupuncture involves the activation or stimulation of certain anatomical points in the body by use of various techniques. Medical traditions coming from Korea, China, Japan, and other Asian countries are the basis for the American practice of acupuncture. This specific health procedure includes the penetration of thin, solid metal needles that are handled manually or by the use of electrical stimulation. These needles are not that painful when inserted through the skin, but it has a different feeling with minimal pain involved. There are different experiences when this kind of medication is exercised. After being treated, some people feel energized, while others feel much more relaxed. It is important to have this medical procedure done by a professional acupuncture practitioner, since an improper placement of the needle, unnecessary movement of the patient, or a needle defect can cause pain and soreness during the course of the treatment.
Acupuncture can be used as an alternative treatment for health conditions such as postoperative and chemotherapy nausea and vomiting and for postoperative dental pain. This procedure is also useful in the healing of other health concerns like headaches, menstrual cramps, addiction, stroke rehabilitation, lower back pain, tennis elbow, myofascial pain, fatigue, osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, asthma, and fibromyalgia.
This type of alternative treatment can ease the pain of the mentioned ailments above, as well as fibromyalgia. Since this illness may not be known by most people, fibromyalgia refers to a widespread of pain in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This ailment is also characterized by fatigue and numerous tender points, or certain areas in a person's body where a slight pressure can cause pain.
Acupuncture is also used to treat several conditions just like fibromyalgia, and this can also be a form of relaxation, as stated earlier. Considering fatigue is caused by excessive exhaustion, weariness, tiredness or lethargy, the practice of this healing treatment can make the body feel relaxed and at the same time cures ailments by using these thin metal needles.
The practice of acupuncture cannot be explained fully by western health research. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, acupuncture treatment is used to achieve balance between two inseparable forces, the yin and the yang, which exist in the human body. Chinese practitioners use certain points along the so-called body meridians as targets for inserting the needles. These points correspond to a specific internal organ. The stimulation of the point brings healing to the ailing internal organ and allows the flow of internal energy or “chi” to go unhindered, resulting in perfect balance and health inside the human body. While this healing method has been used for thousands of years, it is still a subject of intense debate especially in the Western medical community.
Does Acupuncture Even Work?
Many people rave about the benefits of acupuncture but does it actually cure anything? What if it's just the placebo effect at work?

Acupuncture -- A Critical Analysis
Even though widely used in today's clinical practice, acupuncture has remained a controversial subject. Many reviews are currently available but most lack a critical stance and some are overtly promotional. The aim of this overview is to provide a balanced, critical analysis of the existing evidence.
Acupuncture: Does It Alleviate Pain And Are There Serious Risks? A Review Of Reviews
Acupuncture is commonly used for pain control, but doubts about its effectiveness and safety remain. This review was aimed at critically evaluating systematic reviews of acupuncture as a treatment of pain and at summarizing reports of serious adverse effects published since 2000. Literature searches were carried out in 11 databases without language restrictions. Systematic reviews were considered for the evaluation of effectiveness and case series or case reports for summarizing adverse events.
5 Scientists Weigh In On Acupuncture
Millions of Americans turn to acupuncture each year to treat chronic pains and even depression. Recently, researchers at Rutgers University reported that combining the acupuncturist's needle with an electric current could yield a new treatment for severe inflammation. Yet many scientists look skeptically at the practice.

Acupuncture For Weight Loss How Does Acupuncture Work
Follow Us On Facebook:
A lot of people have turned to acupuncture as a weight loss method. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice is an effective method of boosting weight loss when on a diet. Here’s how acupuncture can help your weight loss goals.
The reason why acupunture is used for weight loss is because it can solve the energy distribution problem of the body that normally causes weight gain. Chinese medicine has it that what causes obesity is the disruption of energy flow of the body, which results to the malfunctioning of certain organs such as kidneys, spleen, and digestive system. These disruption of energy flow also affects a part of the brain called hypothalamus, which controls the rate of hunger and thirst of the body.
More still, these disruptions of energy impact negatively on fat accumulation, water retention, and stress development, which is the main contributor of our extra pounds weight.
Acupuncture increases metabolism, improves the cholesterol levels and the functioning of the intestines. Also, it helps in improving moods and reduce stress by releasing specific neurotransmitters to the body. Most importantly, it helps suppress appetite, thereby keeping you full at all time.
Acupuncture appears to be quite effective at reducing body mass and aiding weight loss when used together with diet and exercise. However, before you start using acupuncture for weight loss, you’ll need to discuss with your acupuncturist about the real cause of your weight gain. Some people gain weight as a result of stress – here, the best weight loss method will be to help the individual relax more often. For others, habitual eating may be the reason for weight gain – here, treatment will be focused on problems related to cravings.
When your acupuncturist must have identified the problem, he/she will now be able to decide the appropriate combination of points to push the needles for about 2mm. This is done to break up the energy nodes that are causing disruption to the proper functioning of your body.
The most important points to be observed for acupuncture weight loss are:
Stomach – to prevent compulsive snacking
Mouth – for those who eat too much
Kidneys – for water retention treatment
Lungs – to treat addiction to certain foods
Spleen – to solve sugar related problems
It’s advised that you follow 2 sessions every week for about 2 to 3 months. Researchers recommend that pairing acupuncture treatments with other healthy lifestyle choices like portion control, healthy foods, and regular physical activity, will lead to amazing results – Always remember that.
Good luck with your weight loss goals!

Basics of the SI Joint Exam

Learn more about the sacroiliac joint at
In my practice the prevalence of sacroiliac joint pain is quite high. In patients presenting with the chief complaint of low back pain I've seen patients as high as 30% presenting with sacroiliac joint pain syndrome.
Painful SI joints are identified by taking a thorough history, physical exam, and performing a diagnostic sacroiliac joint injection, under fluoroscopic guidance.
Sacroiliac joint pain syndrome can mimic other spine-related conditions such as radicular pain syndrome, facetogenic pain syndrome and Piriformis syndrome.
SI joint pain syndrome has several common symptoms. These include: lumbosacral pain, buttock pain, pain referring to the groin, hip girdle, thigh and leg pain, poor sleep habits, sitting problems, and unilateral leg instability.
A symptomatic SI joint can refer symptoms distally in a somatic distribution such as transient numbness, prickling or tingling, urinary frequency, iliac crest pain, increased pain with menstruation, sexual intercourse, stair climbing or with sustained positions.
A patient history should include asking about the onset of pain, the mechanism of pain, the duration of pain, exacerbating factors, relieving factors, and prior history. Other things to check for in the history include whether or not patient is suffering from fever, chills, night sweats, bowel or bladder incontinence.
Prior history would include any recent physical rehabilitation or physical therapy, any manual medicine, any chiropractic treatment, any acupuncture, any recent history of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory use or muscle relaxers, any history of recent epidural steroid injections or any spinal intervention.
Location is extremely important in the diagnosis of SI joint pain. Typically patients presenting with SI joint pain typically present with paramedian pain below the level of the L-5 or in the buttock region.
Key tests that should be performed during the physical exam would be the following: pointing to the site of pain while standing, evaluating patients while they're in a seated position to see if they're actually sitting on the painful side, do they have tenderness over the sacroiliac joint, do they have tenderness over the sacral sulcus.
The five provocative tests that I use in clinical practice to diagnose sacroiliac joint pain would be the following: Gaenslen's, Thigh Thrust, Distraction Test, Compression Test, and Faber's maneuver.
If I see three out of those five provocative maneuvers being positive then I would consider the diagnosis of sacroiliac joint pain syndrome being highly probable.
A diagnostic sacroiliac joint injection is used for diagnostic purposes. In this particular type of injection a local anesthetic such as lidocaine or bupivacaine is used where the medication is actually injected into the sacroiliac joint under fluoroscopic guidance.

The iFuse Implant System is intended for sacroiliac fusion for conditions including sacroiliac joint dysfunction that is a direct result of sacroiliac joint disruption and degenerative sacroiliitis. This includes conditions whose symptoms began during pregnancy or in the peripartum period and have persisted postpartum for more than 6 months.

Weightloss Acupuncture treatment: Watch Julie explain how it works
For a limited time, receive the GODDESS PROTOCOL: Facial exercises ebook, which is a snippet from my upcoming book GODDESS PROTOCOLS: A Beginners Guide to Becoming Naturally Ageless.
Chinese acupuncture is finally helping dieters lose weight by tapping into the body’s many hidden energy meridians. When fine needles are barely inserted into the skin along strategic points on the body it can restore balance to the flow of energy along rivers of Qi (pronounced chee), or life force.There are many reasons people become overweight – hormone imbalances, slowed metabolism, overeating, poor nutrition and lack of exercise are some of the most common.
Using acupuncture to tackle weight loss is a multi-pronged approach.
Pinning Down the Benefits:
The rationale for using acupuncture for weight control is based in the premise that weight gain could be the result of disturbed energy flow to and from the regulating center of the brain, called the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is responsible for maintaining “homeostasis” or functional balance that allows the body to run like a finely tuned instrument. It is the body’s dispatch center that regulates hormones and neurochemicals, and helps to control body temperature, circadian rhythm, thirst and hunger.
Of particular interest is the ability of acupuncture to influence obesity hormones. Research measuring the effectiveness of acupuncture for weight loss found treatments increased ghrelin, a hormone that controls meal initiation and decreased leptin, the hormone that regulates fat storage and metabolism.
The guiding principal is that acupuncture can power up any other weight control strategy by curbing appetite, quelling cravings, boosting metabolism, improving digestion, regulating obesity-related hormones and enhancing the way nutrients are used. It also strengthens the function of the liver, the organ that produces many chemicals critical for digestion, processing nutrients and breaking down of fats. Acupuncture may also increase tone in the smooth muscle of the stomach to help people know that they are full.
Treatments may be reinforced with Cupping to help detoxify the body, as well as electric stimulation on the belly points to really boost the metabolism! They will also include ear Acupuncture in the form of ear magnets that patients can massage periodically in between treatments to help with cravings.
For the best results, treatment should be done two times/week for a full course of treatment (anywhere between 10-16 sessions)!

Bee stings used as alternative health treatments
A medical clinic in the Indonesian capital is using the stings of live bees to treat various illness, including strokes and cancer.
The clinic claims that an active substance in the bee venom has healing properties.
But medical experts warn of inconclusive research and lethal side effects of the alternative treatment.
Bee sting therapist Wima Mulaji Harsono opened his clinic in Jakarta in 2002.
It is one of a handful of clinics offering similar services in the Indonesian capital, claiming success in treating people with various illnesses by using the stings of live bees.
Wima has a university degree in biology and has also studied acupuncture for two years.
The 48-year-old says he has has long been fascinated by bees and their healing power.
After years of personal research, Wima says he has developed a medical therapy that involves pricking the skin with the stings of live bees.
He keeps a colony of bees on the roof of his clinic for the treatment.
The venom in a bee sting has a mixture of powerful chemicals, including melittin that is believed to boost the human body's ability to fight off many diseases, according to Wima.
We can find something inside the stomach of bees that possesses healing properties for human beings, but we have to first explore and study these healing abilities of bees, he says.
The clinic has treated patients with a wide range of illness, including rheumatism, diabetes, asthma, cancer and stroke.
Before treatment, Wima always takes the blood pressure reading of his patients.
As the a bee sting can lower blood pressure, he has to make sure that his patients have a safe blood pressure level before the therapy.
Wima is also very careful with the dosage of bee stings that he uses to treat his patients.
New patients usually get no more than five stings per visit.
As they get used to the bee stings, they can eventually receive between 10 to 20 stings per day.
Patients with serious illnesses, such as cancer or stroke, can receive up to 50 stings during their treatment.
In recent years, the bee sting therapy has become more popular, especially among the low-income residents.
Wima charges patients just five US dollars for a visit.
But for those who cannot even afford this, he also accepts any voluntary donation.
The clinic is open from 10 am to 5 pm every day except on Sundays.
Wima greets patients, registers them and then conducts the therapy, all on his own.
On average, Wima treats around 10 patients per day.
On a really busy day, he can get up to 50 patients, he says.
Plantation worker Ajirwan has been a patient at the clinic for three years.
The 63-year-old is being treated for rheumatism and high blood sugar.
He was also experiencing pain in his legs when moving around.
Ajirwan says he had been to a number of doctors in the past but was never satisfied with their treatment.
He found out about bee sting therapy on the internet and decided to give it a try.
He says he began to feel better after his fourth visit and now receives up to 30 stings in each session.
My legs are no longer swollen. I have felt a lot of changes since trying this therapy. I feel much healthier now and I have a safe glucose level in my blood, says Ajirwan.
Fifty-year-old Irianti has been coming to the clinic twice a week for the past three months.
Irianti suffered a stroke in 1993.
Since then, she has been in a wheelchair and has had some speech problems.
