Are you curious about acupuncture but reluctant to try it? Do acupuncture needles freak you out? Well, advanced technology has made way for an Electronic Acupuncture Pen that can introduce you to the ancient practice without the use of needles and all while in the comfort of your own home.
What Is Acupuncture
Acupuncture is credited for being a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practice from thousands of years ago that is still very prevalent to this day. The practice was created based on the belief that a blockage or disturbance in the flow of the body's life energy, or “qi,” can cause health issues.
TCM says there are over 1,000 acupuncture points in the body that each reside in an invisible energy channel, or “meridian.” Those meridians are each associated with a different organ system in the body.
During traditional acupuncture, an acupuncturist inserts hair-thin needles to specific acupuncture points throughout the body in order to restore the flow and balance of energy, stimulate healing, and promote relaxation.
The Electronic Acupuncture Pen is a sure alternative to the use of acupuncture needles. This effective and painless device provides electrical microcurrent therapy to a preferred area of the body without the use of any acupuncture needles.
Uses of Acupuncture
Researchers credit acupuncture in addressing a variety of health conditions, including:
- Chronic pain (such as headaches, back pain, neck pain)
- Sinus congestion
- Stress and anxiety
- Weight loss
Benefits of Using An Electronic Acupuncture Pen
1. Helps Release Endorphins
Researchers from the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture have theorized that acupuncture helps by stimulating the release of endorphins, the body's natural pain-relieving chemicals.
2. Improves Bodily Functions
Acupuncture is also said to influence the autonomic nervous system, which controls bodily functions. The practice is also said to aid the release of chemicals that regulate the body's blood flow and pressure, reduce inflammation, and calm the brain.
3. No Needles Allowed
There are no needles involved when using an acupuncture pen. This makes it easy for health professionals to use during a session. People experiencing chronic pain can also use the acupuncture pen on their own. The pen allows users to identify the exact spot of pain with the pen which can aid you in researching more thoroughly where it is coming from.
4. You Can Take It With You Anywhere
Now you can enjoy a session of acupuncture any and everywhere with the portability of our Electronic Acupuncture Pen. If you’re traveling or headed to work you can still relieve your pain by carrying the pen that fits easily into any bag.
5. Acupuncture is A Natural Painkiller
Acupuncture is considered a form of alternative medicine that helps alleviate people from using painkillers and other medications to treat chronic pain. The acupuncture pen is great for managing pain because it has no side effects, as opposed to taking a pain killer that can make you drowsy and unable to function in certain settings.
