Acupuncture and Healing
Some people may be wary of trying acupuncture because they are scared of being stuck with a bunch of needles all over their body. Rest assured, acupuncture is actually a painless and safe way to effectively manage a variety of conditions. Actually, many patients report how relaxing an acupuncture session is. The needles used are extremely thin and flexible, so you’ll only feel slight pressure. Plus, some acupuncture techniques don’t use needles at all! Making an appointment with a reputable acupuncturist, like the doctors at Aaaah… Wellness, in Mesa, Arizona is the first step to managing your chronic pain and symptoms.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine technique in which trigger points in the body are stimulated by inserting thin needles into the skin. This encourages energy flow throughout the body and in turn facilitates healing. It’s an effective alternative treatment, allowing some patients to forgo the use of prescription drugs completely. Acupuncturists know where the roughly 350 acupressure points in the body are located, and how to use them to help you feel better.
Conditions Acupuncture Can Treat or Manage
Acupuncture can be used in patients suffering from sports injuries, autoimmune disorders, fibromyalgia, menstrual and menopausal symptoms, infertility, migraines and tension headaches, sinus problems and obesity. It can ease chronic pain, like arthritis, lower back and hip pain, neck and cervical issues and sciatica. Acupuncture can help manage the side effects of chemotherapy, as well as help those with anxiety, depression and stress.
Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture facilitates healing by increasing blood flow and endorphins in specific areas of the body. It can help with circulation, reduce elevated blood pressure and heart rate, boost immune function, balance hormones and decrease IBS symptoms. It can improve mood, increase relaxation and reduce stomachaches. Acupuncture can also be used as a preventative measure, to ensure continued wellness.
Acupuncture isn’t limited to or reliant on needles to help stimulate trigger points. Techniques like suction or cupping, applying heat, friction or pressure, and using electromagnetic and low-level laser impulses can successfully elicit the same healing effects. These techniques stimulate the meridians of the body, without the poke of a needle.
