The Acupuncturists believe that Qi (life energy) is circulating in the channels (or meridians, a kind of network like the roads on the earth) in the body and provide every organ, tissue life energy. If the channel be blockage or the Qi flows abnormally, it will arouse various kind of medical conditions.
By inserting needles into “Qi-points or Acupuncture-points” along the meridians, acupuncturists adjust the flow of energy, remove blockages, and create a balance in the body, thus can treat vary kind of illness or diseases (Acupuncture has been approved can treat over 300 kinds of illness or disease).
Recently scientists confirm that when needles are inserted into Qi-points, this stimulates the body's nervous system to release certain chemicals, such as Endorphins ("endogenous morphine") in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These endogenous chemicals (like medicine) can help to heal our problems and they are all nature, not any side effective. It is assumed that our body can make all the “medicine” we need to improve the pain and other symptoms if we stimulate the right points of our wonderful body.
The key to acupuncture’s effect is not the insertion of each acupuncture needle, but its manipulation.
The best expected feeling is“xun jing gan chuan”, the evoked “de qi”sensations radiate from the stimulated acupuncture point along the route of the maridian, moving toward the problem spot.
The second best is “de qi”, such as a dull ache, light pressure, soreness, heaviness, fullness, distension, tingling, pulsing, warm, cool, radiating feeling, after needle is inserted. When de qi, Acupuncturist will feel "needle grasp" that is often described as feeling like a fish tugging on a line.

The necessity of Qi sensation or De Qi during acupuncture therapy has been supported by millions of clinical practioners. Additionally, Qi sensation is not only necessary for accurate acupuncture point-finding (the communication between patient and acupuncturist that establish immediate confirmation of point-finding), but also for successful point stimulation and optimal acupuncture effectiveness. Generally, if you feel nothing, the effect is much lower than above sensations.
Acupuncture is one of the most common alternative medicines in the United States, practiced by about three million people — mostly adults — every year. It is also used with growing frequency in children to relieve pain, migraines, allergy, digestive problems (such as low apatite, respirative problems (such as, thoat sour, asma, offen catch cold, cough, etc) and other complaints. About 150,000 children in the United States underwent acupuncture in 2007, according to government estimates. Usually children got better effective than adult with the acupuncture at the same disease.
From 1970s, acupuncture has grown rapidly in the United States. The report from a Consensus Development Conference on Acupuncture held at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in1997 stated that acupuncture is being "widely" practiced by thousands of physicians, dentists, acupuncturists, and other practitioners for relief or prevention of pain and for various other health conditions.
According to the 2002 National Health Interview Survey an estimated 8.2 million U.S. adults had ever used acupuncture, and an estimated 2.1 million U.S. adults had used acupuncture in the previous year.
A 2002 survey by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) found that approximately one in ten adults had received acupuncture at least one time and 60% said they would readily consider acupuncture as a potential treatment option. Nearly half (48%) of the individuals surveyed who had received acupuncture reported that they were extremely satisfied or very satisfied with their treatment.
In addition, one in five (21%) of the total NCCAOM survey respondents reported that they had utilized some other form of Oriental medicine besides acupuncture, such as herbs or body work (e.g., traditional massage). Acupuncture NYC
The Acupuncture is one of the safest therapies in the world.
When performed by a qualified, Licensed Acupuncturist, Acupuncture and related techniques have proven to be extremely safe. As we know, blood examination and drug injection is common use in conventional medicine, we regards these needle very safe. Acupuncture needles are even more thinner and smooth, which is pre-sterilized and disposable to eliminate the risk of disease transmission, and Licensed Acupuncturists in NY are certified in Clean Needle Technique protocols to ensure that needles are kept sterile.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved acupuncture needles for use by licensed practitioners in 1996. The FDA requires that sterile, nontoxic needles be used and that they be labeled for single use by qualified practitioners only. Relatively few complications from the use of acupuncture have been reported to the FDA in light of the millions of people treated each year.
Most of side effects are harmless and virtually not side effects at all compare to the drug's liver and kidney damage etc life threaten side effects.
For example, prolong De-Qi-effect and dizziness in a short time can improve the symptoms quickly. Sometimes the symptoms may get worse for a few days before they start to get better because your illness is still progress in the acute status.
The majority of the reported serious side effects are due to either lack of basic medical background or failure to apply the correct sterile techniques. In particular the education of non medical trained acupuncturists gives rise for concern.
Thus it was found that serious side effects were nearly three times more frequent by non medical trained acupuncturists than by medical trained acupuncturists.
Despite some serious side effects, the safety of acupuncture should be judged on the results from competent practitioners who use acupuncture correctly. Acupuncture must be considered an extremely safe therapeutic procedure with rare and easily avoided complications.
Compare with the drug (properly researched, regulated, prescribed and properly used drugs) that cause 90,000 to 160,000 deaths per year, 46 people die every day from Aspirin alone in the USA, (source from Journal of the American Medical Association), Acupuncture is really safe.
