Positive Side Effects of Acupuncture

November 23, 2017

Most acupuncturists begin an initial session of acupuncture with an extensive health intake that goes over all of the systems of the body. We use this information to determine certain patterns of imbalance, allowing us to treat the root cause of the problem.Blogimg - Positive Effects of Acupuncture.

However, when someone makes an appointment to deal with their pain, naturally this is all they are concerned about. So, when we see these patients, we focus on their presenting issue. Once this problem has resolved, they will likely see other beneficial side effects from the treatment, such as:

A reduction in stress or anxiety. Acupuncture is incredibly calming, and when you get acupuncture on a regular basis, that feeling of peace and well-being tends to become your new norm. Life’s little stresses just seem easier, somehow.
You don’t get sick as often. Acupuncture boosts the immune system, and regular clients often comment on having lesser colds and illnesses throughout the year.
Better sleep. It promotes a deep, restorative sleep that can’t be matched by anything else. Acupuncture is very effective for insomnia, but even those without sleep issues look forward to a fantastic nights sleep after a treatment.
Less painful periods. When the blood and energy of the body flow as it should, pain and stiffness disappear. Acupuncture moves the blood, lessening cramps and even alleviating the symptoms of PMS.
Happier digestion. Again, acupuncture is moving, so it creates movement within the digestive tract too. If you are prone to constipation, this medicine can get you unstuck. And if you fall on the other end of the spectrum and suffer from frequent or loose bowel movements, acupuncture can help to regulate that as well.
More energy. When your body is in balance, you have the right amount of energy to get through your day. Patients who get treatment regularly tell us that they feel more energised and alert throughout the day.
Increased fertility. Studies have shown getting regular acupuncture increases your chances of getting pregnant. It regulates hormones and lowers stress levels.
Better relationships. I know it sounds strange, but hear me out. Acupuncture helps to regulate the emotions. It can vent your anger, ease your grief and help you to let go of negativity you’ve been holding on to. Irritated or frustrated? Try a treatment. You will immediately feel those emotions slipping away. When your negative feelings begin to transition into a lighter, calmer place, you will connect with people around you in a very different way.
