Acupuncture consistently helps my patients with a variety of complaints. Many people are surprised to find out that acupuncture is not only helpful for treating pain, but also very effective in treating many other types of ailments.
Did you know that acupuncture will help you have…
… less pain and tension on a regular basis?
… more energy and less fatigue?
… an increase in sex drive or fertility?
… less PMS & discomfort before or during menstruation?
Acupuncture is safe, has no harmful side effects, and has the added benefit of:
- reducing stress
- elevating mood and overall feeling of wellness
- promoting sound, restful sleep
- improving digestion
- boosting your immune system
So how does acupuncture work?
Using tiny thread like needles, acupuncture stimulates specific points on the body to accelerate healing and reduce pain. Through years of experience, our clinic has come to understand that acupuncture helps the body heal by modulating the autonomic nervous system.
When the body experiences chronic pain or illness, trauma, or high stress on a consistent basis, the nervous system gets “locked” into a sympathetic state; a fight or flight response. Being in this state on a regular basis adversely affects the communication systems of the body and increases inflammation.
Acupuncture helps bring the nervous system into a relaxed, safe, and calm parasympathetic state, and “teaches” the body how to smoothly transition between stress (sympathetic state) and safe, relaxed states (parasympathetic state). In our experience, this is how acupuncture helps the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Over time, consistent, regular acupuncture treatments helps regulate the nervous system so you transition smoothly between normal daily stress responses, and the calm relaxed state that we are meant to return to once danger or stress has passed.
- the release of pain-relieving endorphins
- the release of neurotransmitters (substances that transmit nerve impulses to
- the brain and digestive system)
- the autonomic nervous system
- the electrical currents of the body
