4 Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture; Chinese medical practice or procedure that treats illness or provides local anesthesia by the insertion of needles or more modern day, a laser.
1. No More Insomnia!
Insomnia is an irritating sleep disorder, creating difficulties falling and/or staying asleep. Solve the issue of waking up during the night and having trouble going back to sleep with acupuncture. Multiple tests have shown that after going through with this procedure, clients were able to sleep faster, longer, and better! This is due to the increase in nighttime melatonin production, a hormone made in the pineal gland of the brain that is responsible for regulating sleep cycles.
2. Emotional Help
Your physical wellbeing makes a huge impact on your emotional wellbeing. Therefore, it is not a surprise that acupuncture will reduce stress and help you in a ton of other mental health issues.
An article in Chinese Medicine Living explains that “emotions are a natural part of being human. Feeling joy, sadness and anger [are] all perfectly normal experiences we have in our day to day lives. It is when these emotions become excessive, or are repressed and turned inward that they can … cause disease.”
Acupuncture relieves physical symptoms such as insomnia, tightness of the chest, and other examples that relate to mental health. It also regulates hormones such as serotonin and dopamine. This alters the mood we are in and impacts our emotional states.
Acupuncture is frequently combined with herbal medicine or as its own can help treat infertility. It is an average four-month process oriented procedure where frequent treatments will help you become fertile. Then you'd begin the process of insemination, in vitro fertilization (IVF), donor-egg transfer.
But how does this work?
The needled points in your body can trigger hormones and chemicals that help your body prepare itself, such as beta-endorphins that help lessen pain. Acupuncture also increases blood flow to the uterus, sperm count in men, and many more!
4. Decrease Chronic Pain
Acupuncture helps with the intensity and frequency of chronic pain, and is increasingly accepted as an alternative treatment.
Research shows that getting treatment at the right place will decrease pain up to 50%, and does in fact provide relief for common forms of chronic pain, such as osteoarthritis. Acupuncture is definitely worth a shot!
