Whether you overexerted yourself pulling weeds in the garden or just have residual soreness from an illness, acupoint therapy can help treat those general aches and pains. Sure, you can take a few over-the-counter pain relievers but what do you do when they wear off? And, do you know how dangerous overuse of Acetominophen or Ibuprofen can be? By treating yourself with an electronic acupuncture device like the Aculife, you can take care of those aches and pains for the long term.
Biology of Aches and Pains
Aches and pains can occur due to a variety of factors. For instance, repetitive movements can fatigue your body, like painting a ceiling which requires your arms to be over head for long periods of time. Excessive muscle stretching or injury from such pursuits as lifting weights or returning a serve in tennis too enthusiastically can also cause general aches and pains. Your muscles, when stretched beyond the norm too quickly, can form tiny tears causing pain and even inflammation in the area.
Of course, a number of ailments can cause body aches and pains too. Viral infections like the flu or common cold create pain because your body is using all its resources to fight infection. Arthritis is caused by inflammation in the joints and can hurt to varying degrees depending on the severity of the disease. Basically, aches and pains are your body’s way of telling you your health is not in total balance.
How Electronic Acupuncture Can Help
The Aculife Magnetic Wave Therapy device employs electromagnetic wave impulses delivered to key acupoints along the hand and palm that correspond to other areas of your body. Because aches and pains are the result of blocked energy (qi) in your body, the goal is to release those blockages, thereby easing pain.
While you could find a traditional Chinese medicine doctor specialising in acupuncture, your aches and pains could also be served by self-treatment that you can conduct at any time – on your own schedule. You would not have to suffer long through aches and pains if you had an acupoint therapy device like the Aculife.
