Top 4 Reasons People Seek Acupuncture Treatment, Manhattan, New York

Holistic solutions are becoming more common in the western world, and one of the most popular and effective options is acupuncture treatment. Tiny, hair-thin needles are placed on various acupuncture energetic points on your body to relieve a range of issues, from headaches to back pain. Many people also seek out the care to maintain their health and wellness, as they find that the process positively affects their mood and other functional health issues.

Common Conditions Acupuncture Treatments Benefit

1. Mood Disorders

acupunctureLiving in a constant state of stress or battling anxiety or depression is exhausting. By relieving tension, reducing blockages in various parts of the body and focusing on inner balance, patients come out of sessions feeling rejuvenated and calm.

2. Acute and Chronic Pain

Back and neck pain negatively impact posture and cause headaches. Conversely, poor posture from using computers and other devices can cause pain and headaches. During acupuncture, the licensed acupuncturist will treat areas of tightness and tension. Cupping or Tuina (Chinese medical massage) is often added to relax the muscles and relieve the pain.

3. Digestive Problems

Those who suffer from digestive issues, like constipation, bloating or stomach cramps, find that acupuncture treatments help. Because it focuses on relaxing your gut, it allows for processes to operate more smoothly.  Herbal formulas and individualized diet recommendations are often used as well to enhance digestion.

4. Cravings or Addictions
