As we say old is gold, this traditional form of healing involves use of fine thin sterilized needles. The tale goes that our body is full of “qi”, pronounced as “chee” which is life energy. on a normal day there is a normal flow of chee in our body. Only when there is variation, greater or smaller in the number of chee does the perfect balance become distorted. As a method this fine needles are inserted into certain pressure points to unknot the chee flow thus releasing the extra or less life energy. Using the same method here are some pressure points for back pain cure by acupuncture.

Ears:

The pressure points or knots causing abnormality in the flow of chee are also known as meridians and starting from the top, ears are one of the pressure points where through a skilful insertion of sterilized needles to the right points may relieve back pain troubles. Ear acupuncture which has been compared earlier to medication is known to be the cure for chronic back ache.

Fingers:

The second pressure point area in our body to cure back pain is the hands.  Acupuncture includes the insertion of needles into the pressure points creating the mass of chee to unlock. When our body experiences the insertion of needle it relieves the clotted blood flow which is one of the main causes for back pain. However we are warned that being a naïve acupuncture patient at first the pain or stiffness may remain however the effects in the long term are valuable.

Palms:

Yet another pressure point in the body is the palm of our hand which is a knotted mass of nerves running hither and thither across the palm. A experienced needle insertion to this points connects the nervous system straight with our pain causing significant relief in the back pain.

Lower Stomach:

The next pressure point in your body is the area right underneath your belly button. This is however a very sensitive place especially for women and girls however if professional guidance is sought there is nothing to worry about. This is mainly used for abdominal or side waist pain which is directly related to the lower back ache.

The Lower Back:

If you have a knotted pressure point in your body, the first place to attack for cure is the knotted place itself. Usually to relieve the blood pressure, acupuncture method can be used to insert needles into the back area where the pain is being experienced.

The Toes:

One of the most effective area where most of the acupuncture points are located is the toe or underneath the toe of our body. This is the place where most of the pressure points are situated and no wonder some of the points belong to the back pain too. one can usually use this as a pressure point too in acupressure and taking a cue from that , the very pressure point is where the needles are inserted for a deeper and quicker cure.

There are few points dedicated to our body that can cure back pressure pain however it is always strictly advised to sort out the needles to be used by making sure they are sterilized and clean for insertion. Another main point is professionalism which should be accounted for if you trust someone with needles and your body.
