Traditional Acupuncture or Non-Needle Acupuncture: Which Is Better For You?
Acupuncture is one of the most well-known and beneficial holistic medicine treatments available under the umbrella of Traditional Chinese medicine, and can provide relief and treatment for a number of different conditions to help you achieve a more complete sense of wellbeing. But what if you’re afraid of needles and simply can’t stand the thought of trying needle acupuncture, no matter what the incredible health benefits might be? Fortunately, there is a highly effective and needle free alternative – non needle acupuncture. So, which is better for you? Here we take a closer look at what needle and non-needle acupuncture are and their specific benefits and applications for health and wellbeing.
How Acupuncture Works
Both needle and non-needle acupuncture work by invigorating and balancing the energy channels (also known as qi meridians) in the body to heal disease and illness, boost energy levels and promote optimum health and wellbeing in body and mind. To do this, both needle and non-needle acupuncture aim to stimulate specific acupuncture points throughout the body to promote and balance the flow of qi energy through the energy channels. An expert licensed acupuncturist can quickly and accurately identify the acupuncture points to be stimulated to activate and release the energy channels in a way that provides the optimum pain relief, healing and wellbeing for your specific requirements.
What’s the Difference Between Needle and Non-Needle Acupuncture?
The key difference between needle and non-needle acupuncture is the method used to stimulate the acupuncture joints and release the energy flow through acupuncture meridians. Of course, in the case of needle acupuncture, this stimulation is achieved by the precise and accurate application of fine needles at the acupuncture points that helps to quickly and powerfully stimulate energy flow. But how is this achieved without needles?
In the case of non-needle acupuncture, the subtler energies of micro current therapy, color light therapy, flower essences & essential oils are used to gently, yet effectively stimulate energy release and flow through the meridians. Because non-needle acupuncture often uses the stimulatory effects of micro-current frequencies and vibrational healing to provide its benefits, it’s also known as frequency specific medicine.
Benefits of Non-Needle Acupuncture
While needle acupuncture provides powerful and effective energy stimulation and healing to those comfortable with needles, non-needle acupuncture provides an ideal alternative for those who are afraid of needles to receive the healing benefits of acupuncture in a needle free treatment. Non-needle acupuncture is gentler and safer which makes it ideal for those who are new to acupuncture and is perfect for children, the elderly, or those with compromised health.
Non-needle acupuncture is highly effective as both a stand-alone treatment and a complimentary treatment to needle acupuncture. Combining non-needle acupuncture with needle acupuncture increases and deepens the effectiveness of the treatment, while providing a relaxing addition to traditional acupuncture.
Non-needle acupuncture is the perfect alternative medicine treatment for those who want the benefits of acupuncture and energy meridian stimulation without needles, for a gentler and more soothing treatment. For those who want to experience the full benefits of acupuncture, or receive a more deeply healing and regenerating treatment, a combination of both frequency specific medicine (non-needle acupuncture) and needle acupuncture offers a highly effective option for greater relief of pain and dysfunction, and better health and wellbeing.
