Acupuncture massage in Sydney is becoming more and more popular. Millions of people have chronic pain from which they want relief. That relief can come in the form of various health issues. Acupuncture is an effective option that many people look to. What is it though?
The theory of massage is one of the many Asian bodywork therapies that can be employed. Deriving from ancient and traditional Chinese medicines, it has lasted throughout the ages because of its usefulness. In the body, there are special acupoints or acupressure points that lie throughout the various channels, or meridians. The belief is that these channels allow vital energies to flow. There are twelve major meridians that interconnect the networks of the body and its organs. These meridians also allow the body’s major organs to properly communicate. The theory is that if a meridian is blocked, this opens the door to illness and discomfort.
Acupressure massage in Sydney is done by a qualified and trained specialist. The specialist uses their fingers, elbows, hands, feet or other special props to apply consistent pressure to acupoints throughout the body’s meridians. This acupressure can involve massage and stretching to various degrees, based on the individual patient’s needs.
The goal of this type of treatment is to restore a person’s balance and health to the various body channels. By restoring balance, these channels of energy will regulate. Some strong believers in acupuncture massage think it also is an effective way to center the mind, spirit and emotional state. Other practitioners don’t believe in energy fields, but attribute successful use of acupressure to improving circulatory health, stimulation of endorphins and reducing muscle tension.
Regardless of the reason for its effectiveness, acupressure massage can address pains and imbalance in the body. There are hundreds of points in the body where it can be used. Three of the most commonly used points are the spleen, which is an area above the patient’s inner anklebone, the liver, the soft flesh between the second and big toes, and the large intestine, the fleshy area between a patient’s forefinger and their thumb.
Acupressure massage in Sydney is developing into a viable treatment for patients during spinal anesthesia, patients suffering from motion sickness, post-surgery treatment and after chemotherapy. It is quickly an option that medical professionals are employing to use whole-body treatments on their patients in search of relief or general centering of their systems. Research has shown that it can be an effective treatment for pain, including arthritis, and depression or anxiety also.
