Who is an acupuncturist?
The practice of the acupuncture can be traced back several centuries. It was one of the most popular ancient methods of bodily relief. In its crudest form, acupuncture was based on piercing the body and using the pain to relieve the body of any disease. For instance in ancient china, the practice developed into a fledging practice with very qualified practitioners concerned with the alleviation of pain.
With the development of science, the practice of acupuncture has been used to relieve disease using the process of bloodletting .This bloodletting used to involve the vein piercing and this relieved the body of excess blood which were seen to be able to cause disease
An acupuncturist is vied therefore as the individual behind the practice of acupuncture. The simulation of the specific acupuncture points is usually an intricate affair given the delicate nature of the parts involved. Most of the acupuncture points are found along the hands and the soles of the feet.
The use of acupuncture has therefore been found to be perfect for elevating pain and in most cases; the use of needles is a common phenomena unlike the other form of acupuncturist .it is safe when the technique and the needles are well sterilized to avoid incidences of communicable diseases. But in certain cases, acupuncture can be very fatal with serious cases of death outbreaks. This is because it involves the veins which carry the most essential fluid in the human body-the blood.
Due to cases of malpractices and deaths, acupuncturists are supposed to be very highly trained individuals who have to pass several qualification exams to be admitted into the practice. The training is in most cases based on the manner of acupuncture care which include the care for low back pains and the overall standard care practices. The debate over the validity and safety of the acupuncture use in medicine will never die out as long as their use is still on the upward trend. Most people may not experience the instant relief as they expect but it is one of the methods found to be working, so try it out.
With the development and further research, more acupuncturist are being admitted into the practice and the several governments are developing the requisite statutory underpinnings meant to cushion the players from cases of ethical misconducts and the other professional field issues. The future is surely bright as I can see!
