Acupuncture for Health
Acupuncture has been used for centuries to restore health and well-being. Traditional Chinese medicine recognizes acupuncture's role in correcting imbalances or blockages in the body’s organs. People have found relief from a number of neurological, emotional, musculo-skeletal, gynecological, urinary, and gastrointestinal issues. This includes pain and inflammation, infertility, circulation, immune system functioning, and countless other bodily functions.
Many people report feeling increased calm and well-being, reduced stress and anxiety, and an overall uplifted mood after having acupuncture. Though science has been slow to understand the full effects, especially of the biological mechanisms involved, studies have found that acupuncture lowers stress hormones. One way that it does this is by impacting the parasympathetic nervous system, including blocking chronic stress-induced elevations. Science is increasingly linking acupuncture with improvements in a range of stress-related issues included symptoms of depression, anxiety, and disordered eating behaviors.
Acupuncture has also been found to be release endorphins and activate the body’s natural pain-killers. Acupuncture has also been helpful in aiding those who wish to discontinue use of drugs – prescription or otherwise.
