Acupuncture has been an alternative therapy practice to alleviate an abundance of conditions. For instance, acupuncture has been proven and recognized as being an effective way to treat pain, muscle and joint issues, depression, and insomnia (to just name a few). Although, when people think of the term acupuncture, they generally have an image of needles flash into their minds. Now, this acupuncture method is widely used; the thought of needles is what puts many people off trying this highly beneficial therapy.
So, what if there was a way to reap the benefits of acupuncture without the needles? Well, fortunately for those who feel uneasy or have phobias of needles there is a way! Actually, needless acupuncture is a real therapy. In fact, it’s been used longer than westernized acupuncture therapy. In this blog, we aim to answer: what is needless acupuncture? We will also explain how you can find needleless acupuncture in Vancouver. Now, let’s look at how you can acquire all of the health benefits of acupuncture, minus the needles!
What is needless acupuncture?
Needless acupuncture, traditionally known as Teishin acupuncture is an alternative to the well-known acupuncture. This alternative is not like the dreaded needle orientated therapy, which utilizes needles to stimulate specific areas of the body and improve circulation. Instead, the therapist will use an alternative, non-invasive techniques, such as the rounded Teishin needle, acupoint energy pen, finger pressure, and cupping. However, we’re mainly going to focus on the needleless/Teishin acupuncture.
The primary goal of needless acupuncture is the same as acupuncture therapy with needles. Like all traditional Chinese and Japanese alternative healing methods, it’s used to restore balance in the body. Needless acupuncture can alleviate, restore and rebalance ailments in the body that are a result of poor circulation and imbalanced energies. The acupuncture practitioner will realign and restore balance in your body, to stimulate blood flow and energy. This practice will allow the body to heal and restore itself naturally.
In Teishin (needless) acupuncture, the therapist will use a Teishin needle. Now, if you think it’s supposed to be “needless,” well this instrument has one primary difference. So, rather, than having a sharp edge, a Teshin is a smooth, rounded needle. So, like acupuncture, this needle will be placed in certain areas of the body and works in the same way as insertion. The Teishin needle is generally made out of natural elements, such as gold, silver or jade. Traditionally, these needles were made from healing elements and stone.
How can needless acupuncture benefit your health?
Besides, the obvious advantage of no needles is that you will feel just as rejuvenated and replenished as a needle-based acupuncture session. Needless acupuncture treatment, as mentioned uses the blunt needle to increase the body’s circulation and reinject some positive energy to your body, mind, and soul. Ultimately, it’s used to provide the same benefits as the “normal” acupuncture.
