Benefits of Acupuncture

Our body has an incredible capacity for self-healing. However, our modern lifestyle and food habits often affect our overall health and make it challenging for many people to tap our body's full potential. Acupuncture is a centuries-old Chinese medicine practice that improves our overall health, helps us achieve optimal wellness, and promotes our body's natural healing potential. 

Read on the blog to know more about the acupuncture practice and its health benefits. 

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the practice that involves penetrating the skin with very thin, metallic needles at strategic points on our body. It is then activated through electrical stimulation or through delicate and precise actions and movements of the practitioner's hands.

Acupuncture treatments enhance the free flow and circulation of energy and blood in the body, thus improving its overall wellness and health.

Sometimes, the following types of stimulation are also used over the acupuncture points, including the following:

  • Heat 
  • Friction
  • Pressure (acupressure)
  • Suction (cupping)
  • Impulses of electromagnetic energy

As per traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture helps balance the flow of energy or life force. Nowadays, acupuncture is widely used to manage several health challenges and promote healing for various conditions.

What Conditions Can Acupuncture Treat?

Very often, patients seek treatment only when they have any acute pain, chronic arthritis, or sciatica. The reality is acupuncture can treat several conditions and offer long-term benefits that improve our overall health and wellness. Besides its pain-healing abilities, acupuncture offers the following health benefits, including but not limited to the following:

  • Treat chronic pain - lower back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Address emotional disorders like depression, anxiety, strain, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by adjusting major energy centers.
  • Regulate digestive health and improve digestive issues like gastritis, nausea, vomiting, irritable bowel syndrome, and spastic colon.
  • Benefits the functioning of cardiac, reproductive, digestive, and endocrine systems by strengthening them.
  • Addresses respiratory and ENT conditions like asthma, sinusitis, allergies, sore throat, bronchitis, and recurrent chest infections.
  • Helps with neurological conditions like Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, and stroke and improves language and motor function of patients with neurological disorders.
  • Helps improve addiction, menstrual cramps, chronic fatigue, skin disorders, and heart disorders.
  • Addresses insomnia and improves sleep.
  • Prevents premature aging by stimulating the body to supply our organs with fresh blood and energy.
  • Helps optimize the production of reproductive hormones and enhances fertility.
