The practice of acupuncture is the stimulation of certain acupuncture points on the human body for the purpose of controlling and regulating the flow and balance of energy in the body. The practice includes the techniques of piercing the skin by inserting needles and point stimulation by the use of acupressure, electrical, mechanical, thermal or traditional therapeutic means.
Related skin points are appropriately treated by one of over thirty methods of stimulation, some of which are:
1) Long needle insertion
2) Short needle penetration
3) Non-piercing needles
4) Finger tip pressure (called shinshin or “finger needles”)
5) Metallic balls taped to the points
6) Electrical stimulation
7) Moxabustion (the burning of herbs over the points).
Dr. Heiss most commonly uses electric acupuncture in combination with chiropractic care to accelerate the healing process. It has been said that spinal adjusting treatments are necessary with acupuncture, according to world authority Feliz Mann, M.D. of England. Mann states that many internal diseases are cured by the spinal adjustment alone, thus leaving the adjustment (chiropractic) out of the treatment plan invites failure.
