How Does Acupuncture Sinusitis’s Treatment Works?
Sinuses are nothing, but pockets located in our cheekbones, forehead and between the eyes. Small channels connecting the sinuses to nasal passages allow proper drainage of mucus into the nose from sinuses, thus allowing smooth and free flow of air into the sinuses from the nose. Common problems associated with sinusitis include bacterial infections, common cold and allergies.
Acupuncture for sinusitis operates under the classic theory that life energy, known as Qi in the acupuncture community, must be uninterrupted throughout our body at all times. This source of life energy or Qi, together with blood and body fluids, regulate our body make up and functions. The overall health and circulation of body fluids as well as blood depends on the smooth and channelized flow of the source of life energy. If there is any problem or interruption, the natural flow will be blocked, which would lead to certain ailments.
Acupuncture points for sinusitis operate by inserting tiny, fine needles into specific points on the skin along the pathways to stimulate the body to heal inside out. In today’s time, the effectiveness of acupuncture has been clearly explained. In fact, it is the only comprehensive healing technique that releases biochemical like hormones and neurotransmitters by inserting needles into different pressure points. When biochemical are released in the body, it stimulates the central nervous system, regulates overall bodily functions, strengthens the immune system and eases pain.
According to the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, sinus problems are often caused due to several factors, such as dampness and lung heat. Whenever you consult an acupuncturist, he/she will diagnose the cause of your problem at its root and stimulate proper acu-points with respect to the underlying cause of the sinus.
Acupuncturists often identify different patterns of disharmony for different patients. We always consider each patient based on the condition, symptoms and physical health. With all these factors noted, it helps us to plan the entire course of treatment for respective patients.
