It is the Great combination of two words.
Acupuncture is an ancient study. It is a technique that has been done for thousands of years as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Acupuncture uses a method of inserting needles into specific points (acupuncture points) in the body. Acupuncture points are located throughout the body.
There are yin and yang points throughout the body including the hands and the feet.
Massage is the practice of applying structured pressure, tension, motion or vibration — manually or with mechanical or electrical aids — to the soft tissues of the body, including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, joints and lymphatic vessels, to achieve a beneficial response.
A form of therapy, massage can be applied to parts of the body or successively to the whole body, to heal injury, relieve psychological stress, manage pain, and improve blood circulation. Where massage is used for its physical and psychological benefits, it may be termed “therapeutic massage therapy” or manipulative therapy.
To summarize, Acupuncture Massage is the practice of applying structured pressure, tension, motion or vibration — manually or with mechanical or electrical aids to specific points on the body.
The Advantages of Acupuncture Massage in short are:
You are not using needles. You are applying massage to precise points to achieve the most benefits in the shortest period of time.
The balance of Chi, or Qi in some books (is a term used to describe vital energy in the body) is the very foundation of being alive and functioning in Traditional Chinese Medicine technologies.
If there are deficiencies of Chi, there can be pain and illness.
Pain is supposed to mean that there is a blockage or a poor flow of Chi.
If there is a problem with the systems or a disease is present, acupuncture tries to address this by attempting to modify the activity of one or several of the systems of function.
Each acupuncture point, one way or another, are connected to each organ in the body.
Addressing massage to specific acupuncture points, releases blocked Chi and helps your body’s immune system to finish the job. Some acupuncture points are very easy to identify. They are points of pain (back pain, neck pain etc).
Even though there are more than 1000 acupuncture points on the body, you don’t need to know more than 10-20 acupuncture points to help you or members of your family with some “everyday” problems without a deep knowledge of acupuncture science.
Just keep in mind You always have to consult your doctor before do anything yourself.
Relaxation is necessary for maximum therapeutic benefits to be achieved.
The procedure treats the body as a whole. It works to improve the function of several systems of function that are associated with several physical organs in the body.
This is why acupuncture massage is so good for you.
You are archiving relaxation by massage and unblocking Chi by massaging acupuncture points. They help to restore the body through a method of yin and yang.
It is like Killing two rabbits with one shot, so to speak.
There are many ways in which acupuncture massage can provide excellent results and without the harmful side effects of medications. In fact, in many cases, it can be safer to treat conditions with acupuncture massage than with medications.
