Benefits of Acupuncture

Here is a quick run down of some of the syndromes and disorders acupuncture can  benefit.  Acupuncture is commonly known to treat pain and injury of all types: back injury, tennis elbow, migraines, sports injuries, knee pain and the like.  However, acupuncture does more than just relieve pain.  Acupuncture has been shown to also treat anxiety, women’s issues, weight loss/obesity, infertility and conception, as well as insomnia and digestive disorders.  Even after listing all these disorders above, we still have only touched the tip of what acupuncture can be good for.Because acupuncture works on the somato-energetic level predominantly, it is safe and side-effects free.  Acupuncture performed by a trained professional is also almost completely painless, though at times mildly uncomfortable.

As the ancient Chinese did not, as a rule, have a problem with obesity, acupuncture does not have any set method for treating weight control.  However, as there is a large psychological element to weight control (cravings, etc.), acupuncture is often found to be very helpful with weight management.  Acupuncture has been shown to relieve cravings, both for food and substances.  Acupuncture is also a great stress reducer, as it stimulates the release of the body’s natural pain management chemicals, dopamine and seratonin.  Although there is never a replacement for willpower, acupuncture can help the dedicated person manage their weight.

Acupuncture can also treat eye disorders, such as conjunctivitis (pink eye), nearsightedness, and cataracts.  Toothache and other forms of dental pain can be significantly reduced through acupuncture as well.  Other facial disorders such as Bell’s palsy and facial paralysis can, if treated quickly after onset, be well treated by acupuncture.   Studies have shown that getting acupuncture soon after a stroke can increase the rate and degree of recovery.

Acupuncture treats the whole person (not just the symptoms they are experiencing) on a physical, mental and emotional level. This means that treatment of physical problems also affects the way you feel about yourself.  Therefore, emotional disturbances such as anxiety, depression and mania may benefit from acupuncture.

Whatever your symptoms or disorder, it pays to educate yourself about different forms of effective therapy.  Studies have shown that educated patients often have a greater degree of recovery and a better outlook overall.

Infertility

I’m nervoussaid:
Tonight will be the first time I’ve ever gotten acupuncture. Does anyone have any success stories to tell me, so I can feel less nervous? We are trying to conceive, so can you tell me if it really does help with pregnancy?

Conception?

Emily asked:
My partner and I have been trying to conceive for a couple of years, now. We have ascertained that it is something to do with my body mechanics (he is fine in that department!). Someone has suggested that I consider acupuncture, as it has been shown to be helpful with infertility issues. Why is it so effective though?
