Can Acupuncture Help With Fatigue & Low Energy? January 18, 2018

Can Acupuncture Help With Fatigue & Low Energy?, Manhattan, New York

It’s natural to feel fatigued every now and again—such as when you come down with a cold or had a rough night’s sleep. But when the problem becomes chronic, your physical and mental health can sharply decline. While there are some medical solutions to help individuals restore their energy, Cindy E. Levitz, Lic. Acupuncturist, PLLC, in New York City explains that Acupuncture and Chinese medicine provides a more natural approach to treatment. Here, she offers a few insights into how acupuncture boosts energy levels.  

4 Ways Acupuncture Restores Your Energy

1. Balances the Qi or Life Force

Traditionally, acupuncture is founded on the principles of Qi—the life energy that flows throughout your body. It’s characterized by the synergistic forces known as Yin and Yang, which are connected to overall energy levels. When the flow of Qi becomes blocked, these forces are thrown out of balance and cause a person to experience a wide range of symptoms, including fatigue. To this end, acupuncturists treat specific acupuncture points to target blockages and restore flow.  

2. Improves Blood Circulation

acupunctureApart from traditional beliefs, modern research—such as this study from Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine—suggests that acupuncture has a positive effect on blood circulation. The hair-thin filaments help stimulate blood flow, and in turn, improve nutrient and oxygen delivery to the vital organs, muscles and cells of the body. This increased support not only helps enhance your body’s natural healing abilities to reduce physical fatigue and other health issues, but it also sustains proper brain function to reduce mental lethargy. For this reason, many people use acupuncture for mood disorders instead of or in addition to conventional medical treatments.  

3. Treats Underlying Causes of Fatigue

As an effective, adaptable and sophisticated form of natural medicine, acupuncture targets many underlying health problems that are linked to low energy. For example, pressure point stimulation releases muscle tension and trigger points, reduces neck and back pain, and lowers stress and anxiety. Without the presence of chronic discomfort, patients typically enjoy improved sleep and sustained energy throughout the day.

4. Maintains Results

If you receive acupuncture for fatigue, mood disorders or pain, the resulting relief makes it easier to face daily tasks with comfort and confidence. When treatment improves the ability to exercise, eat in a healthy way and sleep better, patients can gradually restore their metabolism by reinstating those positive habits. As such, regular acupuncture appointments promote long-term energy balance and good health.
