Tarot Reader Tries: Acupuncture & Cupping Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Treatment

Here’s a VLOG of my Acupuncture & Cupping treatment *WARNING* Not for the faint-hearted as it can be too gory as there’s blood involved

Benefits of Acupuncture

It is assumed that acupuncture points activate the Central Nervous System. This releases the muscles, spinal cord, and brain with chemicals. These biochemical modifications can enhance the natural healing abilities of the body and encourage physical and emotional well-being.

For between 5 and 30 minutes, the needles will remain in place. The number of therapies required depends on the individual. For several months, a person with a chronic condition may require one or two treatments a week. After 8 to 12 sessions, an acute problem usually improves.

Side Effects of Acupuncture

Bleeding, soreness, or bruising at the site of needle insertion are among the most common side effects of acupuncture. Other acupuncture complications include dizziness, fainting, local internal bleeding, epilepsy, hepatitis B, dermatitis, damage to the nerves, increased pain, and very rare internal organ injury.

Benefits from Cupping

Local pain relief and muscle relaxation include the advantages of cupping. By eliminating the energy blockages that TCM practitioners consider as obstacles to the flow of safe energy or qi, cupping enhances and is believed to optimize one’s health. Cupping can help improve blood flow to a specific muscle area for athletes or help relieve pain.

Potential side effects

Pressure, swelling, burns, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, sweating, skin pigmentation, and/or nausea can be caused by cupping. Cupping also leaves round purple marks or circular bruises on the skin; after several days, these marks may begin to fade but may last for two to three weeks. Surprisingly, mine lasted for 6 days!

Have you tried Acupuncture or Cupping therapy? Let me know if there’s any other alternative/new age treatment that you would want me to try? 🙂
