Uses of Acupuncture
Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese practice of using tiny single-use needles to restore the body to optimal health. Its uses are vast and include indigestion, autoimmune disease, allergies, cold & flu, stress & anxiety, depression, infertility, and pain relief.
Acupuncture is widely known as a way to help provide myofascial pain relief for those experiencing neck, shoulder, back, hip and knee pain. It can also be used to treat headaches, migraines, osteoarthritis, morning sickness, menstrual pain, dental pain, and sprains. Along with physical illnesses, patients may even experience reduced stress and relief from mental and emotional imbalances.
Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture may help your brain release neurotransmitters into your central nervous system, thus activating the self-healing process by activating natural painkillers and stress relievers. In traditional Chinese medicine, your “Qi” or life force, courses through meridians throughout the body; both superficially and internally. Along the meridians, there are over 350 acupuncture points. Modern researchers have suggested that acupuncture points contain an abundance of nerves, muscles, and connective tissue, and that stimulating these points can increase blood flow and release neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters can act as natural painkillers and stress relievers.
There are no chemicals or medications involved in acupuncture, so the treatment has minimal side effects and can be safely combined with other treatments or medications. In addition, patients typically experience little to no pain, and many find the procedure itself to be relaxing.
