Denver Acupuncture Itching Treatment Works Best
Here’s how Wikipedia defines itching. Itch (Latin: pruritus) is a sensation that causes the desire or reflex to scratch. Itch has resisted many attempts to classify it as any one type of sensory experience. Modern science has shown that itch has many similarities to pain, and while both are unpleasant sensory experiences, their behavioral response patterns are different. Pain creates a withdrawal reflex, while itch leads to a scratch reflex.
Denver Acupuncture Itching Treatment – How It Works
Our itching treatment addresses the root issue responsible for itching. If it is caused by heat, the itching treatment resolves the underlying heat. If it is caused by a skin condition like eczema or hives, the itching treatment resolves the skin condition. If it is triggered by an allergic reaction, the itching treatment focuses on relieving the allergic reaction and boosting the patient’s immune system to resist future responses.
If there is no obvious cause, the acupuncture itching treatment taps into the amazing diagnostic ability of Chinese medicine the identify the primary internal imbalances responsible for the itching. By asking specific questions, feeling the pulse and looking at the tongue, we are able to identify internal imbalances that are the trigger for the itching.
So much of modern medicine acts like a band aid, managing symptoms. Acupuncture is unique in that it seeks the root cause of a problem and addresses it as a way to resolve symptoms. This is our strategy with the Denver Acupuncture itching treatment – to root it out at the source.
