The West is increasingly incorporating more and more techniques from traditional oriental medicine due to their great benefits and the naturalness of the procedures and products used in them. An example of this is acupuncture, which has gone from being a minority service to an option increasingly demanded by more and more people to treat different pathologies. If you are looking for a specialized acupuncture service in Altea, you have come to the right place.
At Hotel Ábaco we have added this discipline to the wide range of services we offer in the wellness area of our hotel. Read on to learn more about acupuncture and how it can help you feel better.
First of all, what is acupuncture?
The word acupuncture comes from Latin and is formed by "acus", which means needle, and "puntura", puncture in Spanish.
However, this technique has its origins in traditional Chinese medicine. It consists of the introduction of very fine needles in different parts of the body in order to treat different problems. Some of the most common uses are the relief of pain in specific areas, the reduction of stress or the improvement of symptoms of vertigo or dizziness, among others that we will see later.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, this technique balances the body's energy, known as "chi" or "qui". According to this discipline, energy circulates in the body through channels. Therefore, placing these needles in key points of these channels allows to restore the balance of this energy.
Western medicine has adapted this theory, pointing out that these points allow us to activate or relax nerves, muscles and other tissues, thus stimulating our body's own analgesic substances.
Pathologies that can be treated with this technique
As we have said before, acupuncture is recommended to cure or alleviate different diseases or discomforts. These are some of the most common ones:
- Nausea and vomiting caused by various factors, such as pregnancy, chemotherapy or surgery
- Chronic headaches and migraines
- Back and neck pain
- Muscle aches and pains or premenstrual syndrome
- Hot flashes caused by menopause
- Discomfort caused by menstruation
- Respiratory pathologies
In general, symptoms are progressively relieved, so several sessions are usually necessary. However, between 6 and 8 is usually sufficient, although depending on each case a greater or lesser number will be necessary.
