Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a holistic approach to health and is known for its wide range of benefits. Here are some of the key benefits that have been observed and reported:

Natural Pain Relief: Acupuncture is widely recognized for its effectiveness in managing various types of pain, including chronic back pain, neck pain, knee pain, and headaches, including tension headaches and migraines.

Stress Reduction: Acupuncture can help reduce stress by triggering the release of endorphins (natural pain-killing chemicals) in the brain, which can improve mood, often associated with stress.

Improved Sleep: Acupuncture can help to relieve insomnia and improve sleep quality by influencing the body’s neurotransmitters related to relaxation and sleep.

Enhanced Mental Clarity and Increased Energy: Some patients report enhanced mental clarity following acupuncture treatment.

Relief from Digestive Conditions: Acupuncture can effectively regulate the digestive system, which is beneficial for those suffering from gastrointestinal problems.

Allergy Relief: Acupuncture can be effective in treating various types of allergies by modulating the immune system’s response to allergens.

Enhanced Recovery from Injuries: Acupuncture can speed up recovery from sports injuries and surgeries by improving circulation and reducing inflammation.

Reduction of Symptoms in Some Chronic Conditions: Conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and menopausal symptoms like hot flashes may be alleviated with acupuncture.

Acupuncture FAQ

Does acupuncture hurt?

It is generally not painful; however, acupuncture can affect people differently. The needles used are very thin, much smaller than those used for injections or blood draws. Some people may feel a slight prick as the needle is inserted, but some feel no pain at all.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points on the body, usually by inserting thin needles through the skin, which may affect the nervous system. It is believed to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and promote physical and mental well-being. The traditional Chinese medicine explanation is that it balances the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — which is believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body.

What conditions can acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to chronic pain, headaches, hypertension, allergies, depression, anxiety, insomnia, menstrual cramps, arthritis, and sciatica.

How many acupuncture sessions will I need?

The number of acupuncture sessions needed varies from person to person and depends on the condition being treated, its severity, and how the individual responds to treatment. Some people experience relief after the first session, while others may need a series of treatments to see significant changes.

Can acupuncture be used as a preventative treatment?

Yes, many people use acupuncture as a means to maintain health and prevent illness. It is believed to strengthen the immune system and improve overall well-being.

What should I do before an acupuncture session?

It is recommended to eat a light meal a few hours before your session so that your body has energy to work with. Avoid alcohol and drugs that can alter your alertness, and wear loose, comfortable clothing.

What should I expect during my first acupuncture session?

During your first session, the acupuncturist will typically ask about your health history and perform a physical exam, and then insert one or more thin, sterile needles. You may feel a momentary sting or tingling. After the needle is inserted, there is usually no pain. Needles remain in place for 15 to 30 minutes.

Can children receive acupuncture?

Yes, acupuncture can be safe for children, and they tend to respond very quickly to the treatment.

Can I receive acupuncture if I'm pregnant?

Acupuncture can be safe during pregnancy, but it is crucial to inform the acupuncturist if you are pregnant because certain acupuncture points cannot be used safely during pregnancy.
