The Benefits of Acupuncture

28 Nov

The IMH (Institute of Mental Health) is now offering acupuncture treatment for drug addicts. IMH believes that acupuncture can help reduce and manage addiction cravings, anxiety and more importantly, withdrawal symptoms. Acupuncture treatment in IMH is also agreed by MOH (Ministry of Health). But patients and their families need not worry because acupuncture is recommended on top of Western treatments. The patient will need at least ten sessions of acupuncture and each session will last for about thirty minutes.


Acupuncture is part of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) which involves the introduction and manipulation of needles at particular points in the body to ease pain and restore health. Acupuncture is utilized to treat a wide variety of disorders from infertility, arthritis, hypertension and asthma. Acupressure (or shiatsu) is a variant of acupuncture but the difference is it uses pressure rather than needles.

The theory of acupuncture is that the body is comprised of two opposing but complementary sides – yin and yang. Health and harmony are attained when yin and yang are balanced. It is also believed that the emotional and mental conditions can manipulate the balance which can result to health or disease. It is good if you balance it but if imbalance happens, there will be an obstruction in the flow of qi (life energy). Obstructions in the life energy will result to disease and pain.

WHO (World Health Organization) has a list of medical conditions that can be improved by acupuncture. WHO said that cataract, Parkinson, stroke, insomnia, bronchitis, diarrhea and sciatica can benefit from acupuncture treatment. In addition to that, acupuncture is also an effective treatment for conditions like alcohol addiction, back pain, nausea and migraines.
