WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a system of medicine that has been around for thousands of years. It is a wonderful form of medicine, working to enhance and improve your body's natural immune system. Through the insertion of thin needles, this holistic treatment stimulates the movement of energy or Chi that has been blocked or stagnated due to daily stress, trauma, mental stress, physical fatigue, or even external pathogens.

 

The Science Behind Acupuncture Studies have shown that acupuncture has an impact on the brain and brain activity that is involved in certain conditions. Specifically, the use of acupuncture has been shown in certain studies to minimize pain and improve certain conditions such as migraines, neck, back and knee pain, PMS and menopause, fertility, insomnia, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, and more.

 

The truth of the matter is that acupuncture, used as a preventive measure, can help minimize the onset of many of these disorders, and can be used as a wonderful investment in keeping your body healthy. Not only has acupuncture been shown to improve many health conditions, regular use also minimizes the onset of acute seasonal illnesses such as colds and flus, and will shorten the length of an illness when it does occur.

 

While it may be difficult to measure, acupuncture can also minimize seasonal disorders such as allergies during the fall and spring. Again, acupuncture restores balance to the body, which in turn minimizes the body's reaction to outside allergens.
