Unfortunately, the present day hectic lifestyle with tight schedules, back to back meetings and deadlines often leads to stress, annoying pains and aches and the quick option most of us opt for is popping a pain killer, hardly thinking about the negative effects that it can have on our health in the long run. But, the real and ugly truth is that the drugs can provide temporary relief to the body, but ancient therapies like Acupuncture strengthens the body from the core by stimulating certain sensitive areas to provide long term relief from ailments and pains.
First, I would like to say a few words about acupuncture – acupuncture originated in Ancient China. The holistic technique is used to increase circulation, increase deep relaxation, and to relieve muscle stiffness. All this is achieved without any mood altering substances, but by applying pressure to various points on the body. So, if you are suffering from back and joint stiffness, then you’re on the right place! Well yes, because this acupuncture technique may help to alleviate your symptoms and improve your mood overall.
Note: The method can be either acupuncture if needles are used, or acupressure, if the points are pressed or massaged. This simple method can be done by anyone and does not require any specific training, while acupuncture needs a lot of knowledge and special needles. The massage of certain points will relieve the symptoms of the pain in the joints, legs, and hips. The regular stimulation will completely alleviate pain.
These are the three points you need to know in order to solve your problems with back and joint pain:
- First, you should know that the stimulation of the first point, GB29, located at the junction of the pelvis and femur, will relieve the pain in the hips, and in the joints in general.
- In combination with point GB 30, which can be found a bit lower and behind the buttocks, on the back end of the pelvic bone, you will treat the pain experienced in the joints, lower back, hips, and shoulders.
- The third point, or B 54, is just behind the knee. Its stimulation will relax the muscles, and relieve the pain in the hips and lower back.
