Transcript of "Chinese culture acupuncture"

  1. 1. AcupunctureBy AndrewCaosunBy AndrewCaosun Acupuncture
  2. 2. How Acupuncture Is Done• First, the acupuncturist talks to the patient about what kind of pain he or she has and notices the sound, face, tongue, odor and the obvious emotions of the patient.• Then the acupuncturist will check the 6 pulses on each palm of the patient.• This helps the acupuncturist determine whatkind of treatment to preform on the patient.
  3. 3. • The acupuncturist will select some needles after he or she is done deciding what treatment to do.• Then the acupuncturist will insert the needles into any 365 points along the meridans in the body.• This process will take up to 30 minutes to an hour.
  4. 4. Explanation• Scientists do not know why acupuncture works, though they are studying it.• Meridans are pathways in which qi flows through. There are blockages in these pathways when yin and yang are imbalanced. People sometimes feel slight electrical pulses along these meridans.
  5. 5. Needles• Some acupuncture needles are thick, and others are thin. The needles are designed for specific depths and angles for different treatments.• The needles are made of steel.
  6. 6. Cures, Side Effects, And Accidents• Acupuncture cures back pains, has numbing effects, headaches, relieves pain, etc.• The most common infections are viral hepatitis and bacterial infections. This is usually caused by the acupuncturist and bad hygiene.• The most common and fatal accident is the puncture of one of the lungs, collapsing it.
  7. 7. About Acupuncture• Acupuncture originated and was practiced in Asia.• It is being accepted by the United States, but some states still ban it and you have to have an acupuncturist license.• Nobody knows who invented it.
