What Can Acupuncture Do?
Acupuncture works through the insertion of small needles into specified acupuncture points throughout the body. Different acupuncture points correspond to different areas of the body, and by manipulating those points with needle insertion, heat or electrical current, results can be obtained.
By affecting nerve channels and stimulating the production of certain hormones while limiting others, acupuncture can provide many benefits:
- Pain management
- Stress reduction
- Boosted immune system
- Improved gastrointestinal function
- Better circulation
Acupuncture has been proven to help with chronic pain disorders, inflammatory illnesses, medication and pregnancy side effects, and more.
The Benefits of Acupuncture Over Other Treatments
Acupuncture is one of the most thoroughly researched and well-regarded forms of alternative medicine. Unlike some other naturopathic treatments, acupuncture benefits have been shown time and again to be more effective than the placebo effect; it is even used effectively on animals.
When performed correctly by a trained acupuncturist, acupuncture is safe, effective and has no side effects. It works best as a preventative measure and to promote whole-body wellness.
