When it comes to spa and wellness treatments, acupuncture is usually one of the most misunderstood treatments. The truth is that it does work, as long as you get it properly done at a wellness spa like Zianna Wellness & Spa. This article explains the information you need to know about acupuncture, so you can decide if it’s right for you.
How it Works
Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese practice of inserting tiny needles into strategic skin points on the body. When it is done by an experienced therapist like the ones at Zianna Wellness & Spa, it is virtually painless. It works by adjusting the body’s neurotransmitters, hormone levels and/or immune system. Studies have shown that acupuncture will reduce chronic pain in patients more often than not. It is not a cure, but it is a method that provides longer lasting relief from pain than over-the-counter medication or ointments.
Who it is Best Suited for?
If you deal with chronic pain in your body (muscles, joints, headaches, etc.) and other methods aren’t working, then acupuncture may be right for you. If your pain is new, you may still opt for traditional therapy treatments such as a massage session. However, if the pain persists, then you should consider acupuncture as a more impactful form of pain relief.
Is it Safe?
Injuries from acupuncture are extremely rare, but you’ll still want to make sure you are working with an experienced acupuncturist and that the needles are completely sterilized before application. At Zianna Wellness & Spa, we have one of the best acupuncture specialists around on our staff.
