Acupuncture is an ancient healing treatment that has grown in popularity throughout the last thousand years. Acupuncture is used to reestablish the body’s health with qi (“chi”) which brings balance to the body’s systems. It is not a question of whether acupuncture works – that has already been proven. The question is where to go for treatment and how do the treatments work. If you’re not convinced yet, here are a few reasons why you should try acupuncture.
It’s Not As Scary As It Seems
The idea of therapy involving needles can be very intimidating, but there’s no need to panic. Acupuncture needles are very thin and hardly noticeable. Most patients describe acupuncture needle as feeling like a dull ache with no pain. Let your acupuncturist know if you have a fear of needles so he or she can help ease your nerves beforehand.
It’s Not Just For Pain
Not only can acupuncture be used to treat chronic headaches and pain throughout the body, but it can also boost your mood by regulating neurotransmitters in your brain. Acupuncture can be used to alleviate hot flashes caused by menopause. Plus, it can boost your immune system by increasing the activity of your immune cells that seek and destroy infections. There are tons of way acupuncture can benefit you.
It Has Positive Side Effects
Just like any medical practice, acupuncture has side effects. The term “side effects” often has a negative connotation, but with acupuncture treatments, that’s not the case. The positive side effects of acupuncture include better sleep, more energy, less stress and a clearer mind. These side effects influence many aspects of your life and can better bring back a positive outlook.
It Pays Off in the End
Most people expect immediate and dramatic results after their first appointment. However, acupuncture is not a one-time treatment kind of deal. With each patient having a very different condition, there is no definite time frame. It will take a few sessions before you start to see and feel huge changes.
