Here’s what you should know about this natural healing remedy. 

Understanding Holistic Medicine

What are Common Holiday Ailments?

The combination of inclement weather and holiday festivities can wreak havoc on your body. Hanging decorations and shoveling snow can lead to back pain. Rich foods can cause digestive issues and heartburn. Plus, there are emotional and mental challenges associated with planning, scheduling, and entertaining extended family which can result in stress, anxiety, and loss of sleep.

How Can Acupuncture Help?

AcupunctureAcupuncture is based on a method first utilized by the Chinese over 2,500 years ago. An acupuncturist inserts thin needles into specific pressure points throughout the body to stimulate the central nervous system and promote the release of positive endorphins. Studies have shown that acupuncture can relieve back pain in a few treatments since energizing your nerves prompts your body to begin healing itself. Needles inserted into the forehead, neck, and shoulders can boost relaxation and a sense of calm. Further research has found that this treatment can also curb symptoms related to IBS and other dysfunctions of the liver, spleen, and stomach, by reducing inflammation.
