For those who have never been to a session, acupuncture can be hard to understand. However, those who have been have had treatments know how beneficial it can be. The needles are very thin (about the size of human hair) and they’re inserted into strategic points on the body.
Chinese medicine has been around for thousands of years, and describes acupuncture as a way to balance the body. The needles are inserted into those meridians and then the energy will flow again. As for the pain, most people feel little to none when the needles are inserted.
Afterwards, many feel relaxed or energized.
Acupuncture can bring relief for many conditions and even eliminate some.
- If you suffer from headaches or pain in your back and joints, like tennis elbow or carpal tunnel, you may find that acupuncture can bring you relief. Studies have shown that acupuncture can result in fewer tension headaches than those who had received traditional treatments.
- Not only does acupuncture relieve pain from tennis elbow, it is a great way to heal the condition entirely and many that get treatments for carpal tunnel find that they get longer lasting relief than other treatments.
- Don’t continue suffering with heartburn or indigestion. Brazilian researchers found that it can also alleviate heartburn and indigestion in pregnant woman. 75% of the women in the study found that both heartburn intensity and antacid use declined.
- Although acupuncture cannot treat and cure cancer, it can help with side effects from radiation and chemotherapy. Patients who were wearing acupressure bands during treatment felt less nausea and dry mouth. It did not get rid of their symptoms but did help with the severity and side effects. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can also help maintain healthy red blood cell counts during treatments.
