Acupuncture is ancient treatment method which has very good effects on varicose veins. According to the Chinese medical theory, varicose veins are caused by stagnant blood. Acupuncture can improve the blood circulation effectively.
A typical acupuncture treatment might involve needling points at the beginning or end of a channel (called jing-well points) to increase flow through that channel.
By inserting the tiny needles into the key points along the meridians, the acupuncturist forces the blood to move in the veins and surrounding areas. Meanwhile, the points for coordinating the internal organs are selected to enhance the energy and blood flow to supply and develop the source of blood to the area.Patients can see the improvement gradually. The dark color becomes lighter and lighter and the lines, clots spread out to a wider area. Acupuncture and massage may help improve the overall circulatory system. Most people said that acupuncture cannot help aesthetically, only prevents the situation from worsening.
