The record from Ponsonby Wellness :30% patients symptoms can get worse after treatment but it is usually a good sign. 7 Acupuncture Side Effects That You Should Know About By Sara Calabro The most common side effects of acupuncture are things everyone wants: better sleep, more energy, mental clarity, better digestion and less stress. One or several of these side effects occur routinely for many, many acupuncture goers. Following the publication of an article on the most common side effects of acupuncture, AcuTake received multiple inquires from readers about certain unpleasant side effects of acupuncture and whether they too were common. And indeed, there are other, less-pleasant side effects of acupuncture. These additional side effects are much rarer than the most common side effects of acupuncture, but they can and do occasionally happen. None are life-threatening, and all typically are fleeting. Still, they are good to be aware of so that if you do experience them, you know they’re normal and nothing to be too concerned about. Infrequent But Possible Side Effects of Acupuncture In my experience, the following seven side effects can occur after acupuncture. Worse symptoms While most people notice a marked improvement in their symptoms following acupuncture, some feel worse before they start feeling better. In natural medicine circles, this is sometimes referred to as a healing crisis. The idea is that as your body starts undergoing the changes involved in moving toward health, things get stirred up. This can cause not only an exacerbation of current symptoms but also the recurrence of previous ailments that had been dormant. Acupuncture awakens your self-healing capabilities. With that can come an onslaught of bodily awareness. This usually is a positive experience but it also can mean heightened sensitivity or intolerance for things that previously felt normal. An example of this is someone who unconsciously adapts to stress by tightening and hunching up his shoulders. After an acupuncture treatment, once this person’s bodily felt sense has been woken up, his mild upper back and neck tension might start screaming. The good news about this side effect is that it’s a sign that things are moving. In the case of acupuncture, this means that the primary objective is being met. That is, you are starting to transition on multiple levels from stuck to unstuck. Fatigue People can feel wiped out after acupuncture. A more common result is increased energy, but sometimes the “acu land” effect hangs on a little longer. This is your body telling you that it’s depleted. Feeling fatigued after acupuncture is not cause for concern, but it is a warning sign that you need to rest. If you have this experience, take it easy for the remainder of the day. Take a bath that night. Go to bed early. Come morning, the combination of acupuncture and rest will leave you feeling born again. Soreness Body parts where acupuncture needles get inserted can feel sore after needles are removed. I’ve found that this most commonly occurs with points in the hands and feet, especially Large Intestine 4, an acupuncture point located between the thumb and index finger. You also may experience muscle soreness away from the needling site if a trigger or ashi point was released during your treatment. Soreness from acupuncture typically dissipates within 24 hours. However, big trigger point releases can cause residual soreness that lasts a few days. Most acupuncturists will warn you about this before you leave your appointment. Bruising Although less common than soreness, bruising can occur at the needling site. Sometimes bruising is the result of a hematoma, a localized collection of blood that gets initiated when the needle punctures the skin. Bruises, unfortunately, usually last longer than soreness from an acupuncture needle. Still, they generally are not anything to worry about beyond the aesthetic inconvenience. It is unknown why some people bruise from acupuncture. I have a few patients who, no matter what I try in terms of needle brand, size or technique, they bruise every time. (Again, I often see it happen at Large Intestine 4.) Others — the majority — never experience bruising anywhere. Muscle twitching Every time I get acupuncture, no matter where the needles are placed, my right quadricep muscle twitches like crazy. Don’t ask me why. People may experience involuntary muscle twitching during or after acupuncture. I’ve seen this occur in muscles that receive acupuncture needles and, as in my case, on seemingly random parts of the body that are far away from any needles. Muscle twitching is different from full-on muscle spasm. If during or after an acupuncture treatment you feel that one of your muscles is acutely spasming, especially if it’s a muscle that was just needled, tell your acupuncturist. He or she might be able to release it before you go on your merry way. Lightheadedness This is pretty rare, but it can happen — and on very rare occasions, post-acupuncture lightheadedness can result in fainting. Getting up quickly from the acupuncture table can cause lightheadedness, as can coming for acupuncture on an empty stomach. Remember that eating is one of the key things to remember before an acupuncture appointment. When your acupuncture session is over, take your time getting up and move gently as you gather your things to leave. If you find yourself feeling lightheaded after the treatment, sit in your acupuncturist’s waiting room for a few minutes and take some deep breaths. Acupuncture can be a physically and emotionally intense experience, and sometimes our bodies are not fully recovered at exactly the moment our hour is up. It is okay if you need a little extra time. Emotional release Sometimes people cry in acupuncture. Not because they’re in pain, but because their emotions, which can get stifled while powering through life, become free-flowing. The emotional release that can happen in acupuncture usually is a positive experience, but it can be surprising, especially for people who tend to be more emotionally stoical. Feeling extra sensitive or tear-prone in an acupuncture session, or in the days that follow, is completely normal. It’s also a sign that the acupuncture is working. Even if you’re seeking acupuncture for a physical ailment, increased emotional expression is an indication that healing is happening. From an acupuncture perspective, physical and emotional health are interconnected, so emotional shifts suggest forthcoming physical changes as well. While these side effects are rarely cause for concern, you know your body best. If any of the above side effects feel like they’re too severe or lasting too long — or if you notice any additional negative reactions to an acupuncture treatment — you should contact your acupuncturist.

Traditional Chinese Medicine & COVID-19

In western medicine, part of how doctors diagnose COVID-19, is by analyzing RNA in a patient’s throat. In China, they do the same. But they also use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Acupuncture therapy & Knee Osteoarthritis

1 March 2020 Tony Jiang
Ponsonby Wellness 09 3601229

Knee Osteoarthritis is also named as degenerative knee joint disease. It is a common and frequently-occurring disease among middle aged and old aged people. The morbidity of this degenerative illness is particularly high among elderly group and the amount of female patients is more than male patients. Additionally, the main characteristic of this disease is the degenerative and damage of cartilago articularis, hyperosteogeny, osteophyte formation of adjacent subchondral bone plate and joint edge.

The main clinical manifestations of knee osteoarthritis are knee pain, knee swelling,
knee stiffness, and knee joint deformation. These distressing symptoms further lead to serious dysfunction of knee joint and adversely affect the quality of daily life. There are some causes of this joint disease such as overweight, age, excessive usage, hormonal changes, genetic factor, and systemic disease (rheumatoid arthritis). Currently, the modern medical treatment of early stage and middle stage patients is non-operative treatment which includes taking non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug, taking glucosamine, injecting sodium hyaluronate into articular cavity. The treatment of later period patients is mainly artificial joint replacement. However, the usage of non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug has obvious gastrointestinal and renal side effects. Moreover, the surgical therapy has infected risk.

Acupuncture therapy has a significant advantage in treating knee osteoarthritis. Acupuncture treatment can effectively eliminate the swelling, relieving pain for a long time, reduce seizure frequency, and the side effect of acupuncture service is very little. The acupuncture treatment of this disease includes two main types: electro-acupuncture and needle warming moxibustion. The key acupuncture points are Dubi, Neixiyan, Heding, Xuehai, Liangqiu, Zusanli, etc. The treatment duration of is 30 minutes every time, 3 times every week, 6 times every treatment course. For electric-acupuncture therapy, the intensity of electric current generally depends on patients’ tolerance degree.

Stress is an inevitable part of life. In TCM, stress affects the free flow of Qi within the body, resulting in stagnation, excessive internal Heat and poor Blood circulation. Excessive and prolonged stress may impede the delicate balance in our body and trigger severe health problems.

The most common manifestations of stress include sleeping disorders, anxiety disorders, headaches, fatigue, indigestion, restlessness, hypertension, acne, poor or excessive appetite, decrease in sexual ability, and a desire for sweets and dessert. In some cases, long-term stress can also lead to weight loss or weight gain problems.

Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture can help clear body heat , help blood flow, improve sleep quality and reduce the stress.

The gut is the ringmaster.

Whenever I see a new patient in clinic, no matter what the problem may be, I will always be interested in what happening with their digestive system.

Traditional Chinese Medicine associates digestion with two main organs being the stomach and the spleen. The stomach and spleen are also known as the “earth” element in Chinese five element theory. In order to operate at your best, have strong immunity and enjoy optimal health you must have a well functioning digestive system.

Our hectic western lifestyles and poor dietary choices have led us to an increase in digestive dysfunctions and many people present at the clinic with issues ranging from minor problems such constipation or to more severe diagnosis as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or Crohn's disease.

Using acupuncture, Chinese herbal therapy, diet and lifestyle changes can be very beneficial in strengthening the earth element and assisting the patient in getting their body back in balance.

Weak digestive systems and resulting digestive issues are also common in my paediatric patients. Chinese medicine believes the qi or energy provided by the stomach is extremely important and is called post-natal qi. We need to have robust post-natal qi to operate well throughout our lives and support our constitution (pre-natal qi).

Therefore, I always encourage parents to nurture their children’s digestion and supply a good diet to give kids the best start in life.

Shonishin, which is Japanese needle free acupuncture is a wonderful way for me to help bring children’s tummy’s back into balance.

Acupuncture for cancer pain! Systematic review and meta-analysis published in JAMA Oncology could open big doors for the profession when it comes to cancer care: https://www.acupuncturetoday.com/digital/index.php?id=742b6963&Page=66

Acupressure is often used for a wide range of mild to moderate conditions. One point that is often recommended is on the wrist and is often used for nausea - PC 6. Another point on the leg is used for digestive issues, strength and stamina and more - ST 36. Both of these points have been discussed in many studies before and have hundreds of years of clinical use backing them up.

A recent study from Taiwan published in the Complementary Therapies in Medicine journal, looked specifically at these two points and the effect on post-operative pain for gastric cancer patients.

Following gastric surgery pain, nausea and vomiting is common. The researchers here recruited 60 patients from a surgery center in Taiwan and randomnly assigned them to a control group and an acupressure group. Treatment was offered 3 days in a row, so this was only looking at immediate results in a post-operative setting.

In TCM, meridians are strings connecting acupuncture points, which are considered as passageways through which energy flows throughout the body .The meridian system is composed of 12 principal meridians, each of which connects to an organ system and extends to an extremity and eight collaterals .

Acupuncture :before & after

The old “I can’t have acupuncture, I’m afraid of needles” chestnut is one we hear a lot in the clinic. It’s a totally valid concern considering, well, we use a lot of needles 🙃
.
Alas, my friends, see here. This needle is so small, so teeny weeny, it was really hard to even get the camera to focus. This is one of our largest needles we have in the clinic.
.
When you drop it on the floor, it’s hard to find and when you’ve got them in it’s hard to feel.
.
Some points are inevitably more sensitive than others, of course. However, the actual insertion of the needle is almost always pain free.
.
If you’re scared of needles, you’re scared of injections and needles at the doctors office... what you’re not scared of 40 minutes of pure relaxation and bliss. Nobody is scared of that 😉
