Acupuncture has been a popular treatment method for hundreds—if not thousands—of years, with its roots in holistic Chinese medicine. Tiny needles are applied to key pressure points on the body (so tiny, most people don’t even feel them), which in turn stimulate the nervous system to promote healing and reduce tension and stress. But that’s not all – here are five of the top benefits associated with acupuncture:
- Pain Relief
Perhaps the most beneficial aspect of acupuncture is that it’s a drug-free way to provide targeted pain relief. By focusing on specific pressure points, acupuncture can help alleviate pain in common areas of the body, including back pain, joint pain, neck tension, headaches and more.
- More Energy and Mental Clarity
Acupuncture treatments tend to clarify and reset the mind, which then usually results in an increase in energy. Those suffering from insomnia have especially benefitted from regular acupuncture sessions.
- Migraine Relief
Chronic migraines can be incredibly debilitating. They can come on suddenly and make it almost impossible to perform day-to-day activities. Regular acupuncture treatments have shown to reduce the frequency of migraines and the severity of headaches.
- Anti-aging Skin
Most people do not realize the skincare benefits associated with acupuncture. The localized nervous system reaction of the needles naturally increases blood circulation and collagen production. This helps tighten the skin, reduce wrinkles, heal acne scars, shrink pores and make your skin smoother and healthier.
- Infertility and Menopausal Symptoms
Not only can acupuncture help promote healing of the skin as mentioned above, it can actually help with infertility and symptoms associated with menopause such as hot flashes, anxiety, fatigue and mood swings.
