Acupuncture treatment is becoming more and more common in the U.S. A practice tailored to be pain-free while also treating a wide range of health issues stands out as a viable treatment option. “Wide range” is rather broad term, so let’s detail the specific, proven acupuncture benefits:
Acupuncture benefits include:
- Reduced headache/migraine frequency
- Alleviation of chronic pain—primarily neck, back, knee, elbow
- Treats insomnia
- Assists with cancer recovery
- Can prevent mental decline
The practice of acupuncture is unique in the sense that it can treat both mental and physical health problems. Rather than treating the problem area directly, acupuncture may consist of treating areas surrounding the problem area or maybe even areas no where near the problem area.
How exactly does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture is all about controlling energy flow throughout the body. Energy, also known as “qi” or “chi” in Chinese culture, is controlled by various pressure points which are reached via acupuncture needles. The ultimate goal is to rebalance the energy flow throughout a patient’s body. The rebalance will get the body back to its original healthy form.
Acupuncture needles are both sterile and non-obtrusive. Professional acupuncturists will have full knowledge of the science behind the practice and will therefore know exactly how and where to place the needles without causing harm to the patient. Naturally, people are often turned off by the thought of a needle or needles penetrating their skin. Though, it’s a matter of trust in the proven practice of acupuncture. Acupuncture would not be an ongoing practice if it did not support its pain-free claim.
Before any needles are placed in the body, the acupuncturist will conduct an examination. The examination covers a patient’s entire medical history and it also consists of a tongue and cheek evaluation. Because acupuncture treatment considers the body in its entirety, it requires an understanding of any previous or ongoing health problems in order to determine the proper treatment. A medical questionnaire and a tongue and cheek evaluation will provide an acupuncturist with the important information that he/she will need to perform the treatment.
An overview of acupuncture benefits:
- Proven positive results
- Safe practice
- Limited side effects
- Pain control
Acupuncture is a strategic practice. It not only treats pain, but it also diagnoses and prevents pain. Acupuncture benefits come in many ways as the overall energy flow of the body enlightens the acupuncturist to what needs to be done to treat pain and prevent further pain. Its effectiveness is evident through improvements to both the mind and the body. Physical issues such as joint pain can be resolved through acupuncture, as can mental illnesses such as stress and drug addiction.
