Pain Relief

One of the main reasons people visit acupuncture clinics is for pain relief. Studies show that acupuncture is an effective treatment for:

  • Headaches
  • Migraine
  • Neck & shoulder pain
  • Back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Osteoarthritis

Chinese medicine is based on the belief that blocked energy in the body leads to pain (and eventually disease). Releasing those blockages and allowing energy to flow freely provides pain relief for many patients. This is true of both acute conditions and long-term chronic pain.

 Increased Circulation

It’s logical to conclude the increasing energy flow throughout the body also improves blood circulation. Not surprisingly, that’s exactly what researchers have found.

One study found a “significant increase in blood flow” in patients receiving acupuncture treatment. Another study found that Tui Na massage improved circulation to the legs and feet.

Oriental medicine could be a safe, effective treatment option for anyone with circulatory issues. Even if you don’t have a chronic condition, increased circulation will remove toxins from your body and improve your overall health.

 

Depression & Anxiety

We all feel down sometimes, but many of us (women in particular) suffer from chronic anxiety or depression. These conditions are notoriously hard to treat with western medicine, and unwanted side effects are common.

Because of the calming, balancing effect acupuncture has on the body, it’s a terrific way to address temporary or chronic anxiety. Researchers have found marked improvements in women suffering from major depressive disorder and similar conditions.

Better Sleep

Do you sometimes suffer from insomnia? Acupuncture could be your ticket to a great night’s sleep.

Studies show that acupuncture can improve both the duration and quality of your sleep. The results were even better when combined with other forms of traditional Chinese medicine, such as herbal teas or tea pills.

Boosts Immune System Function

You are more prone to illness when you’re feeling stressed or anxious. On the other hand, when you’re feeling relaxed and healthy, your immune system is better able to fight off disease.

Your mood, mental health, and well-being do affect your overall physical health. Since acupuncture helps you to achieve balance throughout your body, you’re in a better position to maintain your good health long-term.
