The Benefits of Acupuncture
January 18, 2018

We’ve all seen images of people with needles sticking out of their skin. Of course, this ancient practice, known as acupuncture, is widely used to help individuals with various issues. What are the benefits of this practice, and can it help you?

What is Acupuncture

Historians found the use of acupuncture in documents that date back to before the Common Era and originated in China. The process involved moving negative energy, called, qi, out of a person by pricking them with sharpened bones and stones. During this time people believed that this negative or bad energy caused illnesses and that by removing it, the individual would get better. Today, many holistic doctors continue to study and use acupuncture. Moreover, even licensed physicians agree that it benefits people by alleviating over a 100 different health issues.

Acupuncture Protects Your Brain

Have you ever felt that you suffer from brain fog? In the world we live in today, several factors contribute this, making your brain feel like it’s not working or that it’s running slow. Thankfully, acupuncture helps alleviate this slowness or fogginess. For example, it locates the many pressure points that help improve your sleep or even help with insomnia relief. Sometimes all we need is good nights sleep to help us feel better the next day.

Surprisingly, acupuncture is considered very relaxing, helping you unwind from your daily stresses. Stress and emotional imbalances play a major role in brain function. They are often the underlying cause of other health issues.  Holistic physicians use specific points on your body such as on your head, back, hands, and feet to give you relief from stress. With the use of acupuncture, a physician guides blood flow to the area of the brain to help subvert these symptoms.

It is a Pain Reliever

Acupuncture is a great way to relax muscles, guide blood to or through problemed areas, and release extra tension. During this process, you experience relief from headaches and migraines. It even helps to ease chronic pain. For women who have painful menstrual cycles or issues like fibroids, focusing on specific pressure points for each area provides relief for these types of pain. For many women, pregnancy can be an entire nine months of pain. Acupuncture is a safe way to help with this pain, but much like a massage, there are certain methods and points that are unsafe such as spots on the feet. A licensed acupuncturist will know how to treat each person with care.

It Helps Improves Recovery

Some clients consider acupuncturing a miracle treatment. It’s believed that certain healing methods help cancer patients find some relief and feel a little better. For example, the physician chooses a specific method with pressure points that reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Improving cancer recovery is an amazing and wonderful benefit for those willing to try the medicine. Additionally, it helps improve and speed up recovery from other illness, injuries, and surgeries by accessing the pressure points associated with each area. As a result, it brings the blood flow to the area needed, relaxing the muscles and releasing any tension.

Acupuncture Can Improve Health Quality of Life

When performed correctly, acupuncture improves the lives of many. Not only does it provide relief from symptoms, but it also helps heal many issues. It even strengthens your immune system, which improves your overall quality of life. For those who suffer from respiratory health issues, acupuncture has been known to improve health. This includes natural causes as well as issues caused by smoking, second-hand smoke, and unsafe work areas.

While acupuncture is safe for all, you want to make sure you find a licensed physician. Because this type of holistic medicine uses needles, you want to ensure proper usage to avoid risky health issues. Licensed physicians will practice safe methods for all those in need. Acupuncture offers many benefits to people suffering with illness and pain. When you need to relax, relieve tension, or get help sleeping, give acupuncture a try. It even helps patients in recovery to heal faster and with less pain.
