By stimulating acupuncture points, many problems experienced by children can be overcome
Wow, it''s not the heart to see a child had been stabbed several parts of his body with long needles acupuncture. But, it turns out it did not always make someone feel pain. This is evident in therapy session. A child does not cry even though almost all over her body pierced with long needles.
Acupuncture, or simply known as acupuncture, are now widely used for therapy in infants and children. This action is performed by a specialist acupuncture. Yes, the old science now began to glance back to support the treatment of western medicine. Several hospitals in Indonesia, this therapy has been inserted between standard medical therapy. In Jakarta, for example, the therapy is available at Pertamina Hospital. Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital, as well as several private hospitals.
What is actually done in therapy or acupuncture treatment?
"According to acupuncture theory, these parts of our body is part of nature. As also of nature around us, in this life Attai Chi energy flow (QI). In the body, the circulation of chi is flowing with a certain rhythm through channels called meridians hypothesis. Well, is situated on meredian acupunture points, "said dr. Heroine Dj''far Said, Acupuncture Specialist, Head of the Acupuncture Center of Pertamina Hospital, Jakarta.
This imbalance of energy flow causes an encroachment on the body. Difficulties could arise as gastritis (stomach), asthma, even itching because of allergies.
When acupuncture is done, the process that occurs is the stimulation of the nervous system to release chemicals or certain hormones in the body, thus affecting the internal systems of the body. "Expenditures for energy and biochemical balance in the body," continued Dr. Heroine. With the improved energy and biochemical balance in the body, physical and emotional health is expected to be good too.
Good for kids.
During this time, those who underwent acupuncture treatment was mostly adult age. However, lately there is a tendency child has undergone acupuncture treatment. This action is it safe?
In America, dr. Lonnie Zeltzer, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles, also said that acupuncture has been used there to solve a variety of diseases in infants and children. Even dr. Kathi Kemper, a child specialist from Harvard Medical School, acupuncture treatment is often recommended to address the various complaints in children, form chronic pain, such as migraines, nausea due to chemotherapy.
Right way, the results obtained
However, a clear, acupuncture treatment for shildren is not the same as adults. "The kids are not miniature adults," said dr. Heroine.
To that since thousands of years ago, child specialist doctors in China had known the difference between the treatment of disease in children and adults. For example, abaout the digestive system of the fetus is not functioning properly, and the baby''s condition is still susceptible to infection (still relying on innate immunity and granted the mother through breast milk/colostrum). If there is interference, then the conditions at each stage of such age are taken into account, and tried to overcome by balancing the energy (chi) body.
Indeed, many are still doubtful of the acupuncture treatment results in children. However, not a parent who also claimed to have felt the results.
The technique is varied
"Acupuncture is not just the science it self is being studied, but also art. Therefore, needle arts, choose a combination of acupuncture points. Also techniques to stimulate these points were not the same on every person who did it," said dr. Heroine
Mother of two children continued," As long acupuncture theory, acupuncture points on the main map. But the new theory states that in any part of our bodies are punctured, will give the same reaction. It''s just that, if done at the main point, then the reaction would indeed be faster and more effectively."
If, would not be surprised if you come bring your child ti receive acupuncture treatments at an acupuncture physician, acupuncture points can be different combinations with other physicians. Similarly, the stimulating needle inserted into the skin, is not always the same. There are connected with electrical stimulation, some are not.
The acupuncture needles used in many kinds. There are made of stainless steel, some are made of gold. Use a needle in there that are used repeatedly after sterilication, but now many are also using disposable needles
However, a clear regardless of technique and needles used, the goal to be achieved by this treatment is "balanced" conditions that are less healthy body. Well, you are interested to try it?
