Acupuncture? Needles? That’s a lot of needles. Now, don’t worry about it, they don’t hurt. It’s not like when you go to get blood drawn or a shot at your doctor’s office and they say it “won’t hurt” but it does. Acupuncture therapy is designed to help you feel better. Even if you suffer from a fear of needles: trypanophobia, you will find that the health benefits of acupuncture therapy in Orlando outweighs your fear. In fact, you’ll find this quite enjoyable. Trust me.
What is Acupuncture Therapy?
Not all of us may understand how it works, but most of us know what acupuncture therapy looks like. Lots and lots of needles. Now don’t be trypanophobic. Acupuncture has a uniques history as well as unique benefits. But what exactly is acupuncture therapy all about?
As you are well aware, acupuncture therapy is a procedure that involves inserting thin needles into various parts of a person’s body. Acupuncture therapy is a traditional Chinese medical application that is based on the belief that health is the result of a harmonious balance. According to traditional Chinese medicine, illness is an imbalance. Acupuncture therapy attempts to correct this imbalance.
Today, experts in the medical profession are starting to understand the benefits of acupuncture. Studies suggest that when placed in the correct location, needles can help aid in pain relief. Furthermore, these needles can help balance energy in your body.
As stated, the health benefits of acupuncture therapy are numerous. This treatment can help with a number of ailments including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Digestive Issues
- Arthritic pain
- Knee pain
- Headaches and migraines
Acupuncture therapy can assist in the treatment of chronic medical conditions. With the added benefit that the treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive.
Acupuncture therapy is known to help reduce stress in those who regularly receive treatment. Just about a third of US adults report that they experience stress. There are many different ways to reduce stress, those can range from therapy to medication. One effective and non-addictive way to deal with stress is acupuncture therapy.
Just about every American at some time or another has suffered from migraines and headaches. With such a large number of adults saying they have migraines and headaches, there is the need for a more effective treatment method than medication. A more effective, and less liver-straining approach is with the use of acupuncture therapy.
Treats Repetitive Injuries
Repetitive stress injuries, such as those from lifting things at work, can put someone out of a job for a few days, keeping them in a lot of pain. Acupuncture is effective in treating such injuries. This means that the dependence on pain killers due to these injuries decreases, which is a great thing, especially when considering the current epidemic with pain killers.
Believe it or not, acupuncture can dramatically improve the human digestive system. This is great news for those who suffer from chronic digestion issues.
