BENEFITS OF ACUPUNCTURE
If we are talking about all benefits that acupuncture has to offer, than we will need a lot of time and space. The line of benefits is long and detailed. Therefore I will point to the most common health problems that make you want to seek an acupuncturist.
Today most of us are caught in our everyday routine, struggling between job family and all other aspects of our lives. We don’t have enough time for ourselves. As a result of our lifestyle, we have to cope with a lot of stress and stress related diseases. Acupuncture is very successful in treating stress and preventing the development of stress related diseases.
Acupuncture has been a proven modality for stress relief, and as we reduce our stress level many other health problems will disappear. That is because an acupuncturist is treating the root of the problem and not the symptoms only.
Acupuncture for Pain Management:
Everybody experiences some pain or discomfort during their lifetime. Acupuncture will help to improve acute and chronic pain problems. Acupuncture stimulates the brain to release chemicals (hormones) that act like natural opiates. Acupuncture can stimulate the brain to produce endorphin release, (an endorphin is a natural pain relief substance which make us feel good) so after treatment you will feel more calm and relaxed.
Acupuncture will speed recovery after any injury or disease.
Cosmetic / Face Lift Effect:
In recent decades, there is a lot of talk about the use of acupuncture for facial rejuvenation that acupuncture promotes. There are many ways to improve your appearance and acupuncture is one of the safest and easiest ways to look 5 to 10 years younger. It is important to remember that in order to achieve these results you will need at least 10 treatments and continuing care by your acupuncturist.
Acupuncture and Weight Loss:
It is clear that acupuncture will not make you lose weight but it can help you on your path. Some of the main reasons why we are not able to stick to any diet is because it is hard to control cravings, keep calm
and change your lifestyle.
This is where acupuncture starts to work. It is well known that acupuncture will help to control cravings, reduce appetite and relieve stress. Emotional eaters will greatly benefit from this. As a result, lifestyle changes are going to be easier with less bumps in the road to wellness.
Acupuncture to Quit Smoking:
Many people don’t know that acupuncture is a great tool to help you stay away from cigarettes. Needles will not make you quit, but they will help you stay on track. Acupuncture will help by lessening withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are (not limited to): stress, anxiety, insomnia, restlessness, and emotional distress. Acupuncture is an option to make these symptoms easier and more controllable. Therefore, the first decision you make to quit smoking is to look for an acupuncturist who can start you on the road to wellness.
I hope that this information will be your first step to your own Bridge to Health.
