Acupuncture is a treatment by which needles are inserted into the skin of a patient and sometimes an electric current is passed through these needles to treat the patients.
Peer-reviewed medical research has shown that the benefits of massage therapy include; pain relief, relaxation, increase in mobility and range of motion and reduced trait anxiety and depression. In addition to the physical benefits of massage therapy, people can greatly benefit from the touch of another human being.
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning by stimulating the flow of “Qi” (pronounced chee). Qi can be influenced and balanced by stimulating specific points on the body. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points.
A Chiropractici adjustment is a highly skilled and precise movement usually applied by hand to a joint of the body. Adjustment is safe and painless and it loosens the joint to restore proper movement and optimize function.
When a joint is adjusted, a gas bubble escapes causing the popping noise you may have heard about.
