Benefits of Acupuncture

Why seek out a qualified acupuncture provider? To some people who have never experienced the benefits of this kind of therapeutic treatment, it might seem like just a fad, or something that’s not going to be worth the effort. But many of those suffering from various types of health conditions have found that acupuncture really does work for them!

Here are some of the real improvements we’ve seen in some of our patients:

Stress Reduction

We live busy lives. Many of us struggle to maintain a good work/life balance, and feel overstressed at times.

Acupuncture works on the essential principle of relaxing areas of the body that have a relationship to our neurological stress centers.

It may not seem completely intuitive to people who haven’t spent a long time reading about human anatomy, but there really are ways that the body works holistically. By targeting these, it’s possible to really relieve a lot of physical and emotional stress through acupuncture techniques.

Headaches

Headaches and migraines can be a real trial. Diagnosis can be tough. Meanwhile, the pain can impair daily activity, and that pain can also cause its own stresses.

Some of our patients have found that acupuncture really does get rid of a lot of the pain and tension in various types of chronic headaches. The alternative is to pop a lot of Tylenol or Advil, but as medical doctors will tell you, this is not a great long-term strategy, as it puts a lot of pressure on the vascular system and the liver. Acupuncture can be a lower risk way to address these issues.

Digestive Conditions

We’re going to leave it to the gastroenterology specialists to explain exactly how the body’s general nerve systems work with the endocrine and gastrointestinal systems. The bottom line is that acupuncture has the potential to help treat gastric conditions as well. Some of this has to do with a variety of pretty obscure scientific research on protein binding and other things. The key is to find the treatments that work for you!

Eye Strain

The reality is that many of us now work on computers. It used to be that there was this divide between white-collar and blue-collar work, where one side always worked on computers, and the other side never worked on computers. Now, many kinds of trade workers and traveling professionals have computers on them in the field.

Eye strain is a real stressor for the body. Acupuncture can help reverse some of those effects as the career professional starts to feel worn out and overwhelmed.Ask us about acupuncture and all of our other services, too, including Chinese herbal treatments, nutritional coaching, and more.
