Acupuncture is one of the alternative holistic therapies that many people call “medical art”. Ancient Chinese and Japanese medical practitioners are claimed to be pioneers of this type of treatment. They developed several types of acupuncture. One of them means inserting metallic needles into some certain points of human body. Another includes using a special herb called moxa, which is supposed to accumulate energy, normalize blood circulation and remove blockages in human body using heat. In addition, other herbal remedies (including a series of special Oriental herbs Han Lian Cao, Dang Gui, Nu Zhen Zi and many others) can be used for acupuncture.
Along with other natural treatments, specialists frequently recommend acupuncture and herbal treatment to the people who suffer from hair loss. Acupuncture to the scalp is one of the safest and most effective methods that work both for men and women. It is directed on increasing blood flow to the scalp and stimulating new hair to grow. Scalp acupuncture is beneficial for its being relatively painless.
Contemporary acupuncturists use a special plum blossom hammer in order to increase the effectiveness of acupuncture therapy. The hammer has several needles placed around the hummer face. During the procedure, the acupuncturist gently presses the hammer against various areas of the scalp, making several needles stimulate the patient’s epidermis and dermis at the same time.
Certainly, not everyone is ready to feel needles being inserted into the body and scalp, even if this can make the person healthier. Nevertheless, acupuncture is considered to be a universal treatment, which can not only stop hair loss and promote growth of healthy hair, but also relax your muscles and free your body from nervous tension. That is why this treatment is very popular nowadays.
