Acupuncture has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments. By stimulating the release of special chemicals within the body, specifically endorphins, your nervous system is stimulated in a way that reduces pain, can alleviate addiction symptoms and can help you make positive changes that transform you into a more positive state of health. This is one of the most pain-free, medication-free treatments available today.
Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture can help with a wide variety of ailments that make life difficult to get through. The treatment is quick and you can get about your normal day immediately after a session. Among the conditions treated by acupuncture are:
How it Works
The body contains energy meridians that connect all the various areas. Along those meridians are points, normally where nerves connect with muscle, that are like crossroads for energy. When these points become blocked, the energy is stifled and pain and other dysfunction occurs. By utilizing anywhere from 10 to 20 needles, the therapist identifies the blocked points and places the needle so as to open up the energy path and allowing for normal flow.
Acupuncture for weight loss
Acupuncture has proven to be very effective in helping individuals with weight loss. Endorphins are released when energy points are stimulated. These endorphins help eliminate the negative thoughts that lead to overeating. More than that, they help stimulate the body’s natural appetite control center. As you feel better mentally and physically, you are able to find the weight coming off in a healthy manner that allows for lasting results.
