What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture can treat many types of health issues, such as:
Acupuncture lowers stress hormone levels and improves mood to help reduce feelings of anxiety and increase feelings of happiness.
2. Back and joint pain
Pain relief is one of the top benefits of acupuncture. Acupuncture can reduce back and neck tension and also alleviate pain in the joints. It can also reduce inflammation.
3. Headache relief
Patients struggling with chronic headaches and migraines may find relief with acupuncture treatments. Several studies reported by the National Institutes of Health found that acupuncture treatment was effective in reducing both the frequency and severity of headaches among chronic sufferers.
4. Reduce symptoms of neurological disorders
Neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, can have a huge impact on a patient’s life. Acupuncture is an alternative medicine option to help treat these diseases. Clinical studies have shown improvement in language and motor function of patients with many neurological diseases and conditions who seek acupuncture treatment.
5. Reduce an individual’s risk of falling sick
Patients who routinely have acupuncture treatment enjoy a reduced risk of getting sick because the treatment supports the body’s natural immune system responses. When a person is exposed to a virus or bacterium, the body is better able to fight it off, and the person is less likely to fall ill.
6. Digestive problems
Constipation, heartburn, and irritable bowel syndrome are common digestive problems for the modern individual. Acupuncture treatment helps regulate digestive health and bring relief from these common ailments.
7. Increased energy
After acupuncture treatment, patients may experience a surge in energy levels. This can help people feel more productive at work and home.
8. Better sleep
When the body’s energy is in balance and the nervous system is properly stimulated, many people have better abilities to fall asleep at night. Acupuncture has been shown in scientific trials to benefit people struggling with insomnia, and some results found that acupuncture had a greater benefit for patients than sleep medications.
9. Relief from allergies
Allergy sufferers can use acupuncture to strengthen their immune response before the start of allergy season. Sometimes when used in conjunction with allergy medications, acupuncture can help reduce the symptoms of allergies once an attack begins.
10. Controlling blood pressure
Acupuncture and medical treatment for the cardiovascular system can help reduce blood pressure levels. The practice helps support proper heart function and blood flow, and at times it is more effective than medication at controlling blood pressure.
11. Enhancing fertility
Couples trying to conceive a child may have faster results with acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture can optimize the production of reproductive hormones, and subsequent treatments can support a healthy pregnancy once a woman conceives.
12. Improved healing after medical procedures
Acupuncture can assist people who have had surgery or undergone cancer treatments to heal more quickly after their procedures. The immune system and wellness support achieved through acupuncture triggers the body’s natural healing abilities to speed healing.
