At the same time bodies on which place there is a congestion of this force are surprised. Correction of current situation is possible only at influence on special channels that are called as meridians. As practicians explain, the principle of the stinging needle is constructed on inclusion of reflexes. When communication between sick body and the corresponding active zone on a corporal meridian is broken, there is a disease. If to puncture this point, the lost interrelation will be restored that will cause fast recovery.

For application of acupuncture it is not obligatory to wait until your health knocks down any illness. The procedure is recommended even in the preventive purposes and also for strengthening of protective functions of an organism. Make sure that entrusted the body to the experienced reflexologist. Before the procedure he surely has to talk to the client, find out his age, sex, a physical and spiritual state. All these factors and also time of carrying out manipulation have special influence on its effectiveness.

For disposal of addictions

It is characteristic that this way of treatment helps not only to get rid of addictions, and and improves a condition of the patient. The person does not feel dependence and need to struggle with it.
It is important to consider that any session of acupuncture provides total rejection of alcohol, greasy and spicy food.

The course of acupuncture is shown to everyone to lose extra kilos. But it does not designate at all that needles alone can be been in good shape. The healthy nutrition and physical activities will be necessary for symmetry of a body. Experts explain a phenomenon of sharp weight loss after the stinging needles as a reflex message in a human brain that leads correction of work of appropriate authorities. But each client demands individual approach. Therefore depending on features of an organism the following types of acupuncture can be applied to weight loss:
- classical when the reflexologist tries to influence directly bodies of a digestive tract, a liver and kidneys (the session lasts not longer than hour);
- by Falev's method that means introduction of the only needle in a zone of the auricle which is responsible for appetite (demands constant medical control);
- that consists in installation of one needle too, but from Falev's technology it differs in Mukhina's principle in a form and duration of the procedure. The tool reminds ornament as piercing which can be carried about one year.
Important! During the procedure, insignificant painful feelings, drowsiness, burnings, numbness are considered as norm. All these symptoms come to an end together with acupuncture. At emergence of strong discomfort it is necessary to report about it to the doctor.
Whether harm is possible
At first sight the procedure of reflexotherapy seems very simple. But actually she demands profound knowledge and long experience. In most cases patients easily transfer introduction of needles. All feelings during this period depend on specific features of the person and his pain threshold. Many patients are afraid, imagining a picture as they pierce with sharp needles their body, and wounds begin to bleed. You should not prick up the ears, these medical needles very much differ from tailors.
Get acquainted with such types of massage as: The yoni, Lingama, Tantric, Guasha, Stone, Bali, Tibetan, Can, Guasha, Spanish hiromassazh, also learn what is Ayurveda.
The fact is that they have a rounded edge therefore at introduction of tools skin is moved apart. The patient can feel the speeded-up pulsation and pressure in the place of reflex influence. Inflow of heat, weight are also quite probable an itch. Some patients note feelings that they remind instant electric discharge. After the end of all manipulations, bruises and slight pain in the place of acupuncture are allowed. It occurs when the tool gets to a vessel. In cases when the doctor does not follow the rules of hygiene, the probability of infection with hepatitis of S, V type and HIV is high. Also low qualification of the doctor can entail for itself damage of nizlezhashchy fabric fibers, falling of arterial blood pressure, an unconscious state, injuries of birthmarks and keloid hems that will become the reason of their malignization.

Before and later it is not recommended to freeze through, spasms in muscles and vessels will become an obstacle for desirable effect.
Consider that the acupuncture will be productive, only when it will be carried out by the highly qualified specialist. The deficiency of knowledge at it can be worth a lot to you. Often doctors who practice east technicians, recommend a tandem of reflexotherapy and massage. Pay attention that the similar combination is contraindicated:
- to pregnant women;
- at diseases that are followed by an acute inflammation;
- at oncological diseases;
- at infections;
- at tuberculosis;

The beginning probationers of acupuncture can have embarrassment to needles – they can break or get stuck in your body. In that case not to avoid surgical intervention.
Acupuncture and science
Despite of progress of modern traditional medicine, experts resort also to reflexotherapy. Many leading experts consider that east practicians of acupuncture help at chronic and sharp processes of different diseases. Often they yield result, even when the conservative medicine is powerless.
Whether you know? The most ancient medical treatise about acupuncture is dated 221 year B.C. In it the detailed instruction of holding a session is given, but mentioned only 295 active corporal zones.
Doctors note special efficiency at diseases of a back, backbone, arthritis and various dependences. Paradoxically, but against the background of universal recognition any of the existing theories does not explain fully the mechanism of action of needles. Besides in some last reviews of clinical experiments and tests there is an opinion on short-term influence of a course of acupuncture. Allegedly the procedure only removes symptomatology that gives long-awaited relief and is perceived for healing. Actually the cause of a disease is not removed. Therefore sceptics rank reflexotherapy as empirical techniques that at the moment do not answer scientific inquiries of modern medicine. Those who already tested on themselves needle technology, speak about positive and long results of the procedure. However, practically in all cases it is about the scrupulous choice of the expert which will treat. Consider that the procedure expensive. Therefore be not tempted with low prices behind which nonprofessionalism and negligence, as a rule, hide.
