Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is a system of medicine that has been around for thousands of years. It is used to prevent and treat just about all of the health issues people experience. Acupuncture for Pain Relief is well known. Did you know that it is also very effective to boost immunity, reduce anxiety and fatigue, and increase overall wellness? Here is how this natural approach can help you as we move into the Fall and Winter seasons.
Why Seek in Acupuncture in Fall & Winter?
1. Help Immunity
Fundamental to the practice of acupuncture is the theory that the body has a subtle, essential, and powerful life force, or energy, called Qi (chi). It ebbs and flows, becomes stagnant, excessive, or compromised in certain areas, causing imbalance. These blockages and imbalances are the cause of illness and disease. The result is often lowered immunity and susceptibility to illness - including colds and the flu. A Licensed Acupuncturist will address symptoms, and the underlying weaknesses and imbalances in your system, by treating specific points on the body to help the Qi flow smoothly and effectively. This natural approach allows your system to get and stay healthy. Acupuncture care can boost the immune system to prevent illness, or minimize a cold or flu in progress.
2. Moderate Anxiety & Stress
Millions of Americans suffer from anxiety and stress. Fortunately, acupuncture reduces the body’s production of stress hormones, and stimulates the part of the brain that regulates emotions. Many patients experience results after even just one session, or a few treatments, that help them feel more relaxed and able to handle their day to day lives. Acupuncture for stress and anxiety can be used alone or as a complement to therapy and medication.
3. Address Issues of Insomnia & Fatigue
Insomnia and fatigue are often related to stress and anxiety. Treatment from an acupuncturist should include a holistic assessment of your lifestyle and overall health. In addition to balancing and improving energy, acupuncture can calm a busy mind and reduce anxiety. An acupuncturist who is also a certified Chinese herbalist, may also suggest herbs, foods, and lifestyle choices to help you achieve long-term results.
