What are the Benefits of Doing Acupuncture?

Acupuncture treatment, a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practice, has long been regarded as a way to promote healing, relieve pain, and even heal serious health complications. The theory behind acupuncture is that energy, or Qi, flows through the body, and when that Qi (pronounced chee) is unbalanced, it can lead to illness, pain, and unhappiness.

What are the Benefits of Doing Acupuncture?

Not sure that having needles strategically placed into your body is right for you? Take a look at some of the benefits and reasons why people around the world have been using acupuncture to treat a wide range of ailments and to improve their overall health and well-being.

Relieve Seasonal Allergies

If you suffer from allergies, acupuncture can help to reduce the symptoms associated with your allergen. Inserting needles in acupuncture points can even help you use antihistamines less often.

Boost Your Immune System

The needles used in acupuncture treatment can boost the activity level of the cells in the immune system. This results in a stronger immune system.

Enhance Your Mood

Whether you suffer from chronic stress, you’re going through a hard time in your life, or hormonal changes are altering your mood, acupuncture sessions can help. Both during and following the application of acupuncture needles, the central nervous system (CNS) is stimulated. In turn, endorphins, the feel-good chemicals, as well as other chemicals are released which can naturally enhance your mood.

Sleep Better

Need more restful sleep? Try acupuncture. Acupuncture helps to boost the production of the neurotransmitters that help induce relaxation and sleep. Whether you suffer from insomnia on a regular basis or you’re just under a lot of stress, acupuncture may be the solution you’ve been seeking.

Improve Energy

If you need to boost your mental or physical energy, acupuncture can help. This ancient Chinese form of natural medicine successfully combats fatigue and brain fog. Studies suggest acupuncture balances the energetic field within the body, allows you to achieve the ideal set-point, and even helps to improve the function of all of your organs. All of these factors combined can boost both your mental and physical energy levels.

Enhance Digestion

Acupuncture can help to support the proper functioning of the digestive system and the organs that the system is comprised of. It can also rebalance any potentially weakened energetic fields that are negatively impacting your digestive system.

Whether you suffer from chronic irritable bowel syndrome, you have acute GI issues, or you have been diagnosed with long-term issues, such as Crohn’s disease, acupuncture may be the right solution for you.

Improve Fertility

If you’re suffering from fertility issues, acupuncture may be the solution. It is important to note that acupuncture will not cure clear-cut physical causes of infertility. For example, blocked fallopian tubes or vasectomies. However, the fact remains that acupuncture can help numerous couples realize their dreams of becoming parents. Acupuncture can help increase fertility by improving blood flow within the uterus, making it easier for an embryo to implant.
