Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine for backache

I had very severe backache since last week, for those of you guys who have the same experience you will know what the pain is like. I could always feel piercing pain in the lower part of my spine. Whenever i sit for more than 30 minutes, i felt like my spine is being pressured and i need something to sustain my whole back.
Arrgghh~ once in a while i can even feel that one of my legs is numb.
Gossh! Really cannot stand it anymore, i must call Mr. Chong and go for Acupressure and Acupuncture.
 He provides all these sterilizer, and all those medicine for acupressure.



Accupressure
Acupressure (a blend of "acupuncture" and "pressure") is a complementary medicine technique derived from acupuncture. In acupressure physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points by the hand, elbow, or with various devices.

It was so super painful that i had to try to do some other things to distract myself, play FB, take pictures, etc..  But still.....OUCH!!!


Acupuncture
Acupuncture is the procedure of inserting and manipulating needles into various points on the body to relieve pain or for therapeutic purposes. Acupuncture: the Chinese practice of piercing specific areas of the body along peripheral nerves with fine needles to relieve pain, induce surgical anesthesia, and for therapeutic purposes.For those who would like to know more about acupuncture, click here.






Look at these disposable stainless steel needles of fine diameter (0.007 to 0.020 in (0.18 to 0.51 mm), it is not painful at all when it pierced through the skin. Guess how long is each of the needle? about 2 inches as Mr. Dr. said my fatty butt flesh is ticker. LOL!





I told him that my baby has been coughing for months, so he suggested to do moxibustion for her. So, i told daddy to send her here...



Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy using moxa, or mugwort herb.  Suppliers usually age the mugwort and grind it up to a fluff; practitioners burn the fluff or process it further into a stick that resembles a (non-smokable) cigar. They can use it indirectly, with acupuncture needles, or sometimes burn it on a patient's skin.


Autumn lying down there, she didn't know what is the doctor doing...


He is trying to use the heat to warm up Autumn's certain acupuncture points.


Well, there is a lot to remember here... every part of your body has acupuncture points. try it yourself, it really works!
